Info:
What You Won't Do for Love is a popular quiet storm single written and recorded by musician and singer Bobby Caldwell off his debut album of the same name, released in 1978 on the TK Records label.

After gaining a reputation in Miami clubs as a talented musician, TK Records president Henry Stone signed Caldwell to an exclusive contract with TK Records in 1978. Heading to the studio, Caldwell recorded his first album, which was given a redo after Stone felt the album was good but "didn't have a hit". Caldwell returned to the studio and came up with the final product, which included this song.

Caldwell wanted the song to be the sixth track on the album since he figured the song's second track, "My Flame", which featured him playing guitar, would be the hit. However, TK Records felt confident that "What You Won't Do for Love" would be the breakout hit. When it was released to R&B radio, TK Records did its best to shield Caldwell's identity hoping not to alienate its predominantly black audience. However, when Caldwell began making performances live on stage, it only increased demand. The song would become Caldwell's most successful single and also his signature song reaching number nine on the Billboard Hot 100 and number six on the Hot Selling Soul Singles chart.
The song is also included in the film " Donnie Brasco" from 1997.
