Yes, I do. :-)
Over the years, Eddie has been involved in a number of songwriting & producing projects, including a song on Irene Cara's "What A Feelin" album entitled "You Were Made For Me," a song co-written with Robert John entitled "Taking My Love For Granted," plus_many_more.
His current project is the group "Gravity." Search Amazon for their latest CD, "Love Comes Back," which he produced and upon which appear many of his more recent writing credits.
More later when I get a web page up for Joe and Eddie (will post the URL here when it happens). Meanwhile, you can reach Eddie via my e-dress.

This was the greatest birthday present I've ever received! When the albums I collected as a teenager began to wear out, I made tapes of them and have been listening to those ever since (needless to say, this CD is a *vast* improvement to listening to tapes that are over 30 years old - the sound is nothing short of AMAZING). Since ALL of their songs were my "favorite," I can't say that I wish pieces like "The Muddy Old River" were on this CD - because what I really want is MORE CD's so that I can have *every* song they ever recorded sounding as though someone has turned back the clock and they're right here in the room with me!
They were the first singers I ever saw perform live - a terrified teenager, clutching their latest album to my chest. After the performance, I was too shy to ask them to autograph it, so my uncle approached them for me. As they signed, they looked over his shoulder and smiled at me and I thought then that *nothing* that would come after in my life would EVER rival the pure joy of that moment. I was right ... although I've dealt with my share of celebrities since then, nothing ever has come close to matching what I felt that night.
These two men made a HUGE impact on my life and I've judged every other singer and group on how they stood up against the music of Joe and Eddie ever since. As Joe and Eddie are still my favorites, it goes without saying that no one has yet made it over a bar that their perfection set impossibly high.Read more ›
Their voices blended perfectly and Joe's voice brings tears to my eyes. His tenor is so clear and pure. This is a good mix of their best songs, but I agree with the others; there are many songs left out. They do one of the best renditions of "Kisses Sweeter than Wine" with apologies to Jimmy Dean. Surely someone can put the rest of their songs on other CDs. I like the idea of a website. There is precious little about them available. There is an interview with Eddie Brown ...and there are comments by Joe's sister and the widow of their high school voice coach which are very interesting, but that it about it.
The insert tells of Joe Gilbert's death and I cried all over again. It doesn't seem possible that such an incredible voice could be silenced. I remember how devastated I was when I heard he had been killed.Read more ›

I really enjoyed the music. The only thing better is if there was a DVD of them together singing which I realize isn't possible because of the time period when they were together... Read morePublished 16 months ago by Ralph Everingham
A well filled album of their best output, although personally I prefer their Walking Down the Line LP which is hardly represented at all.Published 18 months ago by 409er
