Hello Music Lovers-
It was 30 years ago this summer that my producer Eddie Grenga and I sat down and penned “Blow Me (You Hardly Even Know Me) the very 1st song I ever recorded as Red Peters.
About a year ago or so, I learned from fans that songwriter and producer Todd Rundgren was performing the song live in concert with his band on their American tour.
Since I had just undertaken a new project collaborating with other artists, I asked him if he wanted to record a duet of the song.
He agreed and before you knew it, Eddie had written and produced a new arrangement and Todd was singing his part in Hawaii and me mine in Boston!
I even had Eddie locate 2 of the original surviving members of the Alan Pinchloaf Singers who sang on the 1st recording. And when they made their way into the studio that day, one with a walker and the other with an oxygen tank, I knew this session was going to be extra special!
I cordially invite you to tune into Song Snatch #115 to hear my hot, new release that when it comes out I hope it makes a splash, my new duet with Todd Rundgren, “Blow Me (You Hardly Even Know Me)”!
