I know him for the awesome "Are You Lonely For Me, Baby?" A song that's been comped to death but which never fails to raise chills.

That's the only other song of his I know, though.
"First Sex Pistols song I ever heard? I guess 'Hot Cars'..."

"Hey Girl" was a huge hit here, and should have been even huger - a monster of a song, that is.

Charlie O that was another smashing track you posted ,im amazed I hadnt heard this fella before now,trouble was all those Brill building songs tended to get covered here in the uk ,often (but not always) by inferior artists.
There is some footage on you tube of a very old Freddy Scott singing "hey girl" live at BB.Kings club and he still has a great voice. Is there a good quality compilation out there ?

Just found another great beat ballad by the great Freddie Scott , I wish Ace/Kent would do a job on this fella , he sounds a bit like Chuck Jackson on this "Mr Heartache".
