Dennis Yost 1943-2008

The lead singer of the 60's pop group The Classics IV died yesterday at the age of 65. He had been in ill health for some time.

Dennis' biggest hit with the group was "Traces", a video for which appears below. It was one of the biggest records of 1969. The group is also noted for such songs as "Spooky", "Everyday With You Girl" and "Stormy", recently adapted by R&B singer John Legend as "Save Room".

It's sad that he died. I recalled listening to David Sanborn's version of Classics IV's "Spooky" on his 1996 album, "Songs From The Night Before", and it blew me away.
