    I'm sad to say I've never even heard the John Brim version of Ice Cream Man. I've only heard VH's take on the song.

    My ol man has this tune on a compilation disc of various 50's artists doing that innocent soda pop malt shake rock and roll. Dave stuck pretty much to the original tune, but with a shitload more swagger and style. Otherwise the tune is your typical oldie sounding pop song from the days when the baby boomers had no idea what a 2 pound banana was. The description inside the cover mentions Van Halen covered it and made it immensely popular. Cool tune overall.

    You can make em out, but they are slightly different than Dave's version. I can't remember exactly about the questionable section. Has anyone checked mp3 storehouses for the recording?
