Pete Fountain “Pete Goes Pop”

Pete Fountain Jumps On Pop Cart

It upsets the purists that Pete should wander into different areas of music, I say thank you Pete. You have added your special “Toot” to even pop music and made it extra special with that New Orleans twist. For example, a friend of mine absolutely hates the “Sound Of Music”, but loves Pete’s version, it does not appear on this set, but it does on the Movies & Shows CD, just thought I’d mention how Pete affects people in different ways.
