A song from 1962 by Manfred “Freddy” Quinn. I believe that this is Sam Hoffman on Theremin, but I am not positive. I think the best Theremin part is the last 15 seconds of the song. I will be deleting this song soon, so get it while you can!
From the motion picture “The 5000 Fingers Of Dr. T”. Circa 1953 from a 33 1/3 RPM bootleg record. I don’t believe this soundtrack was ever “officially” released. This film also features lyrics and stage sets by none other than Dr. Suess…
A cool tune from 1948 by Leslie Baxter. It is from the “Perfume Set To Music” era. This is the only song that is missing from the Hoffman box set. Sam has a Theremin part that starts near the middle of this song. Side B on this RCA Victor 45 RPM.
Here is another rarity featuring Sam on a Rock and Roll album.
Sam is a guest performer on this rock and roll song. Uncle Howie
