"Do I Love You (Indeed I Do)" is a song and single by American soul singer Frank Wilson first released in 1965 on the Motown subsidiary label Soul. It is Wilson's only Motown single and is a prized item among collectors.

Record history

Approximately 250 demo 45s of the song were pressed in 1965 and scheduled for release on 23 December 1965. Owing to a combination of Wilson deciding that he would rather focus on producing and Motown's Berry Gordy's lukewarm reception of the vocals and wish to prevent his producers from having a successful recording career, the demos were destroyed. At least two, and maybe as many as five, One is believed to be owned by Berry Gordy himself. Due to its scarcity it remains one of the most collectable discs especially by followers of Northern soul. Owing to the demand caused by it being played at the famous Northern soul nightclub, Wigan Casino, it was re-released in the UK in 1979 on the Tamla-Motown label, and again in 2004 with a version of the same song by Chris Clark on the b-side.

The song has also featured in an advert for KFC.
