The Royal Guardsmen are often thought of as a one-hit wonder for their classic novelty hit “Snoopy vs. The Red Baron.”  But from 1966 through 1969, they had a total of eight songs hit the Billboard Hot 100 charts, with three of them entering the Top 40.  Here is The Royal Guardsmen album discography.
