A great spooky cha-cha tune from 1959 by Herbi Silvers and his Orchestra. This song features Leon “Herbi” Silver on vocals and saxophone and his “Silver Belles”. According to the record, Sam plays “Theremin Effects”. Side A on this Sutter 45 RPM.

Hear Sam play two great standards, with a vocal and multitracking on S’Wonderful. The theremin is recorded with outstanding clarity. Uncle Howie

Sam plays this sad Hebrew song relating to absolution of all vows taken but remaining unfulfilled. Forgive the poor fidelity of this old 78 RPM recording Uncle Howie

I believe this is the only recorded voice of Samuel Hoffman. He is trying to teach Carson to play the theremin. It’s quite funny. Uncle Howie
