I think a “trompeta” must be some sort of cheap keyboard that vaguely sounds like a trumpet.

I Left My Heartburn in San Francisco

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.

The last I can find, Dr. Fry and his band the Texas Medicine Band still play.   He has a few cd’s on Amazon

I even found a pic of him, his hat, and Ventures records from 2011:

Yodeling For Jesus

Bobby Walker
“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.”
