Ha ha ha! My family had that album for some reason when I was growing up. Of course we also had Sgt Barry Sadler and the battle of the green berets.
LOL! We had those, too. What bad music.
My older sister had some other real beauts, including the "Snoopy and the Red Baron" song by the Royal Guardsmen (just looked up the musical group; didn't know who it was).
Actually, it's a pretty well written song. Also, beautiful brunette model beard graces the vid.

Inspired by Philip Morris cigarettes commercials, which used a musical march segment of Ferde Grofe's Grand Canyon Suite (III, On The Trail). CC in turn inspired in part another one of music's key recordings "Please Please Me".
Here's a less orchestrated live clip of Don 'n Phil backed by their pals the post-Holly Crickets
Recorded by many including: James Brown Nick Cave Neil Diamond The Clash Pat Boone Fats Domino Bob Dylan Duke Ellington The Grateful Dead Woody Guthrie The Ventures Ike & Tina Turner Ma Rainey Jerry Lee Lewis Tom Jones Beck Mississippi John Hurt The Black Keys & Elvis Presley.
