Post 304 - Piero Von Armin - Exclusively Yours / Local Boy

Piero Von Armin worked in theatre, film and TV. His only known TV credits was Alvin Purple (the series). Piero is probably best remembered by 1970s viewers for his featured part in the successful advertising campaign for “Uncle Sam's Miracle Herbal Hair Shampoo” and "Uncle Sam Deodorant". He also was in the Australian stage version of the Rocky Horror Show '74-'75. He did release one single for Festival Records in 1974 and here for you to download is "Exclusively Yours" b/w "Local Boy" (K-5651). It was produced by Martin Erdman at Festival's Studio 24 in Sydney. The A side was written by Ben Raleigh and Donald Wolf with the B side penned by Piero. For those of you who want to relive the Uncle Sam commercial here are the links:
Thanks to Peter for this gem.
