    I grew up with Bob Herzog(Bob Zohn) and Jaco in Fort Lauderdale. Here’s a little history of “Come On Come Over”. The demo’s for Jaco’s 1st album were done at Criteria Miami with friend,engineer ,producer Alex Sadkin.
    Producer /drummer Bobbie Colomby of BST discovered Jaco playing with the Peter Graves Orchestra and got him signed to Columbia Records.
    Bob Herzog a great singer and writer who had been playing with Jaco in Woodchuck and had been a childhood friend and one of Jaco’s biggest influences.
    Bob was supposed to do the vocals on “Come on Come Over” flew up for the session and when he arrived Colomby had arranged for Sam and Dave to sing the track ,Bob got nixed and Colomby wanted a hit!
    Bob Herzog Zohn was up for a Grammy in 1984 for Blue Riddim Band “Alive in Jamaica (Dubwise Garage has BRB “restless Spirit album posted ,check it out.
    The summer of 1987 took the lives of Herzog(Zohn), Alex Sadkin and Pastorius
    so much talent taken away so young.
