I have seen a promo vinyl single with Great Shakes jingles for auction and the jingles have been on bootleg LPs and CDs.
Shake-A-Pudding -- Also, during this wonderful era of mid-60s pop/rock commercial jingles, I remember this one that had a real go-go/Shindig feel. I even used to have a "Shake A Pudding" shaker -- now long gone.
Here are the never to be forgotten (by me, anyway) lyrics:
“There's a new kind of pudding, And you can make it. It's called "Shake-A-Pudding" And all you do is shake it Shake, shake, shake a pudding Pudding, pudding, shake a pudding”
Anyone else remember this and know of any rock/pop connections to this tune? "Dr.Mark" Hill
