No, but I truly love his baseball song The St. Louis Browns, which was on his Signpost album and also on the Rhino comp Baseball's Greatest Hits Vol 2. ---Dan -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Jack and Jill are actually Van McCoy and Kendra > Spotswood. Julio Niqo: > Thank you Mick, I love it. I'm getting completely obsessed > with Van McCoy. I already loved his perfect songs, but now > I'm fascinated with his voice. The song is a little jewel > that reminds me of some Smokey Robinson's tracks. How right you are, it's a bit like "I'll Be Available" and would have been simply ideal for Mary Wells. The b-side, "Just As You Are", is nice too. The lovely Jill/Kendra/Kenni/Sandi is more prominent on this side. It's currently playing over at musica: > His demos (if they exist) must be heaven. I do have one Van McCoy demo, one of his most famous '60s songs. I'll play it to musica when space becomes available. More details then.
