Other Springer-Leigh songs include "SALESMANSHIP" and "YOU BRING OUT THE LOVER IN ME", both of which were feautured in the Ziegfield Follies of 1957. "WESTPORT" was a cult favorite and feautured on the Julius Monk show.
Three Springer-Leigh songs, "SALESMANSHIP," "WESTPORT" and "HOW LITTLE WE KNOW" were recently featured in a showcase by Unsung Musicals in New York at 54 Below (11/2014).
