about

So excited to announce that I have finally secured the rights to the first single by Bobby and Dee Dee Pimento (lovingly dubbed “America’s Neighbors”) from the long defunct Dandy Records, “Peaches and Wine (Try not to be a jerk).” After over a year and a half of back and forth with Alan Feldman’s (Majorette label and Dandy imprint owner) grandnephew, I was granted exclusive distribution rights to this classic song, a small hit in the Midwest long before such massive hits as “God Forbid…” and “Always With The Yelling” put The Pimentos forever into America’s heart and homes for much of the 1950’s through the 70’s. Included with this tune is an early Bobby Pimento B-side, “Lay Another Blanket.”

Track Name: Peaches and Wine (Try not to be a jerk)
She likes sun and I like rain
She likes pleasure and I like pain
I like whiskey and she likes wine
She likes palm and I like pine

I think we'll always work
If I try not to be a jerk
Try not to crawl too far inside
If she'll pretend I'm not that easy to find

I like walking and he likes to drive
I like summer and he likes the wintertime
I like cake and he likes to pass
I want to go first but he can never last

And I think we'll always work
If I try not to be a jerk
Try not to go and love him too hard
Let him think that he's holding the cards

She likes a good time, we'll be the last to leave
If swearing were a sport she'd be the MVP
And he likes fighting, at least he talks a good game
I just smile and hope that he gets out of the way

She likes talking and I don't talk enough
But I know she loves me, so I ain't got it that rough
He likes quiet and I don't shut up
But I know he loves me, so I ain't got it so tough

I think we'll always work
If we try not to be a jerk
Try not to ti[ the scales to the side
Of the one who's wrong or the one who's right
I think we'll always work
If we try not to be a jerk
Try not to forget this time
It's not always going to be peaches and wine
Track Name: Lay Another Blanket
Snow is coming down
From heaven to the ground
Watch it dance so softly, silently
Cover all the boughs
Roof of every house
As we lay and dream

Sun is shining down
From heaven to the ground
Warming ever moment masterfully
Worry floats on by
And off into the sky
Drifts away with no hello or goodbye

We dream a song and sing along in key
With nature's words and chorusing birds
In complete harmony to accompany you and me

The fall is coming now
Auburn golden brown
Hear the leaves rustling a symphony
Nights are cool and clear
A chill as winter nears
Won't you lay another blanket on the bed
Oh yes, lay another blanket on the bed
