While Enjoying my first listen to Alvy's incomparable Summer Gold 10 a few weeks back, I became fixated on "Whenever I call You Friend". Its a song I've known all my life, but I never realized that it was Kenny Loggins and Stevie Nicks singing. The track sent me off on one of those stream-of-consciousness internet journeys and I ended up on the wiki page for Nightwatch, Kenny Loggins' 2nd album from 1978, on which the aforementioned tune opens side 2.
I noticed in the tracklisting that the third track on side two was "What a Fool Believes", which was credited to Loggins and Michael McDonald. I bought the track immediately to check it out and have included it here for your enjoyment. It's Carribean funk vibe pales in comparison to the Doobie Brothers version we all know, but its a curiosity worthy of a listen to those like me who've been obsessed with the song since 2nd grade.
