You Get ‘Em From The Peanut Man

I was toying with saving this for a Throwback Thursday post but decided to drop it in today.

Who recalls the name Doug Clark?

For those that do, what is the next thought that comes to mind?

Doug Clark and The Hot Nuts were an R&B band, very popular on the Southeast college circuit during the 1960’s.

Since I was a rug-rat during the 60’s, I missed seeing the boys live but had one of their albums during my grad school days and wore it slap out.

Pressed on the Gross Record Label, the Hot Nuts were known for their risque lyrics and hell-raising antics. Today’s generation of woke snowflakes would surely find the music universally offensive.  Since I am neither woke, nor a snowflake, I’ll start singing, smiling and remembering the good ‘ol days.

Editorial note: As mentioned, some may find the lyrics just a little risque and suggestive. Your’s truly does not endorse such language and it is provided only as historical evidence of a time when things were different. I will leave it at that.

About Ray V.

Living between Aiken & Nashville, TN, USA, I like to share what I am looking at, thinking about or listening to. I refer to this as the view out my window. Thanks for stopping by.

    Something tells me I will be smiling all day at the lyrics but will probably use it to do my exercises this morning. It really brings back memories of that time when things were different.
