Motown producer Frank Wilson dies

DUARTE, Calif. — Motown record producer and songwriter Frank Wilson, who worked with the Supremes, the Temptations and Marvin Gaye, has died in Southern California at 71.

Daughter Tracey Stein tells the Los Angeles Times  that Wilson died of lung infection complications on Sept. 27 in a hospital in Duarte.

Wilson, who later became a minister, wrote or co-wrote the hits Love Child for Diana Ross and the Supremes, Chained for Marvin Gaye and All I Need for the Temptations.

After Eddie Kendricks left the Temptations, Wilson produced his 1973 hit Keep On Truckin’ (Part 1).

Wilson also helped write You’ve Made Me So Very Happy, a 1967 Top 40 single for Motown’s Brenda Holloway that soon became an even bigger hit for Blood, Sweat and Tears.
