The Royal Guardsmen are an American rock band, best known for their 1966 hit singles "Snoopy vs. the Red Baron", "The Return of The Red Baron", "Snoopy For President", and the Christmas follow up "Snoopy's Christmas". Originally known as the Posmen, the Ocala, Florida-based sextet adopted their anglophile moniker during the British Invasion, led by The Beatles and other British artists.
The Red Baron was so respected that the Allies buried him in France with full military honors. So grand was his legend that Peanuts author Charles Schultz devised a storyline pitting him against Snoopy. His image was later used to sell frozen pizza. The German muttering as the beginning roughly translates to: "We will now sing together the song of a pig-headed dog, and our beloved Red Baron " piece - a dialog meant to tell the background of the story (ie what lead up to the events where the song starts). Although these story tracks are rarely heard on the radio, Collectibles Records released the original album on CD paired with Snoopy and his Friends.

Whereas the first pair of Royal Guardsmen albums ("Snoopy Vs. the Red Baron, Snoopy & His Friends") had mostly cute singalong songs for preteens, this second pair of albums was much more focused on bubblegum cover tunes from the 1967-1968 era. Their albums became a bit more serious at this point: along with remakes of cheerful bubblegum hits like "Yummy, Yummy, Yummy," there was an original song with distorted guitars ("Leaving Me"), a sad ballad ("Honey"), and intense dance music more appropriate for adults ("Gimme Some Lovin'"). Note that "Airplane Song" and "The Return Of The Red Baron" on this album also appeared on their previous album, totally unchanged. I suppose this was done to perpetuate the Snoopy theme and to give each album a guaranteed hit, but it's an odd practice that reminds me of the earliest Donovan albums.
