Long forgotten musical tracks # 40

Bimbo is an old song, probably written sometime in 1948 or 1949. It was recorded in 1953 by Jim Reeves.

James Travis Reeves (1923 - 1964) was an American country and pop music singer-songwriter popular in the 1950s and 1960s, who also had gained a wide international following. He was so popular that his songs continued to chart for years following his death at age 40 in a private airplane crash.

Reeves version of Bimbo became his second No. 1 song on the Billboard magazine country chart in January 1954. In those days it was an extremely popular number and could be heard continuously running in jukeboxes around the world.
