I’ve been going back adding audio clips for some records I posted long ago. Here’s the first batch:
For more, click the AUDIO tag on the sidebar.
Charles, Eva and Linda Ogden
“Sorry, I Never Knew You”
Gospel Echo #LP1006
Las Trompetas de Jesus
“Alright, everybody, hands on trees!”
I think a “trompeta” must be some sort of cheap keyboard that vaguely sounds like a trumpet.
Sammy Davis, Jr.
“The Sound of Sammy: From the Candy Man to Plop Plop Fizz Fizz”
1978, Alka-Seltzer/Warner Special Products
Many celebrity product promotion records that I find just are simply an artist’s greatest hits with an advert for the product on the cover. Maybe there’s a company jingle on the record, but its performed by someone else.
Not so here! This forgotten gem features TWO versions of Sammy’s unique version of the “Plop Plop Fizz Fizz” song! One for every taste.
“Plop Plop Fizz Fizz (Big Band version)”
“Plop Plop Fizz Fizz (Rock Version)”
Love Shares #107
The Jay Stevens Concert Orchestra
“Two Cigarettes In the Dark”
“For the Players Of Nights Game”
Dr. Clifford fry was an Economics professor at the University of Houston. On the side he had a decent little country rock band, and apparently stayed up late playing “nights game” and getting drunk.
I even found a pic of him, his hat, and Ventures records from 2011:
“Gospel Organ featuring Yodeling for Jesus”
Gospel Music for Christ #GMC 901
From the liner notes:
“I’m in love with Jesus! It’s just that simple. Barbituates, amphetamines, booze, and pot, were replaced with the Holy Spirit. I’m higher than I’ve ever been in my life. Man, what a trip. No joke, I get higher everyday and never worry about the inevitable crash that accompanies pills and the hard stuff. Being an ex-night club entertainer, I’m hip to all the “junk”. So I can speak authoritatively.”
“Yodeling For Jesus”:
“Riding the Range For Jesus”
Sacred Recordings, St. Paul, MN
“Riding the Range for Jesus”:
