Announcements - PLEASE READ!


Hey Guys!

I'm not officially back yet; I'm sort of in a transitional phase. I'm trying to clean up some of the links here. If there's something you want that doesn't have a working link right now, let me know and I'll try to fix it ASAP.

Soupy Sales Sez Do the Mouse and Other Teen Hits


Soupy Sales was a popular kid's show in the 1950s and 60s. He also had a minor hit with the song "The Mouse," which also had an accompanying dance. On this album, he not only performs that hit and the follow-up "Mouse Trap," he also sings a number of popular songs at the time, as well as some fun novelty hits and original songs. Enjoy!

Here's the track list:
  1. The Mouse
  2. Name Game
  3. Sad Sack
  4. Speedy Gonzales
  5. Hey Pearl
  6. The Nitty Gritty
  7. Mouse Trap
  8. Your Brains'll Fall Out
  9. King Kong
  10. Mighty Clem
  11. Pachalafaka
  12. Mr. Cab Driver
UPDATE: I'm afraid I was forced to remove the link for this album, but you can find these songs (and more) on the album featured below!

Music from Mary Poppins and Other Film Favorites


Woo-hoo! I actually got another album in for this week! The first side of the record features songs from "Mary Poppins," but for some reason "Let's Go Fly a Kite" is simply referred to as the "Overture" and "Stay Awake" is called the "Finale." Also how they could have done a Mary Poppins album and left out "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" is beyond me! The flip side features such film favorites as "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" and "I've Been Working on the Railroad". (Huh?) Anyway, I hope you like it!

Here's the track list:
  1. Overture (Let's Go Fly a Kite)
  2. Spoon Full of Sugar
  3. Feed the Birds
  4. Chimchimcheree
  5. Finale (Stay Awake)
  6. Take Me Out to the Ballgame
  7. I've Been Working on the Railroad
  8. Beautiful Dreamer
  9. Billy Boy
  10. Oh Dear What Can the Matter Be

The New Zoo Revue


Hey, I'm back again after too long an absence, with this fun album from the classic children's show. I think it was actually two short records put together because the opening and closing theme appear on both sides of the record. I changed it so the open starts the whole record and the closing theme finishes it. These sound like they might have been taken from actual episodes. Anyway, I hope to have at least one more album on here this week, so let's cross our fingers and hope for the best!

Here's the track list:
  1. New Zoo Revue (Open)
  2. School Daze
  3. It's Lonely When You Don't Like School
  4. We Need School
  5. Stay in School
  6. In the Arts
  7. Colors
  8. The Only Art in the World
  9. Cheer Up
  10. New Zoo Revue (Close)

Kiddie Pops


This album features an eclectic mix of songs for kids (i.e. probably stuff from numerous sources) like "Take Me Out to the Ballgame", "Frere Jacques", and "Sixteen Tons" (huh?). It also includes a somewhat freaky cover.

This record has the dubious distinction of being in my posting queue the longest. I put the initial post for this album in all the way on May 23, 2008! The problem is that I did some cleaning and misplaced the cover, and I didn't want to post (or upload) the album without it. I did some rearranging and found it, so here it is. Was it worth the wait? Probably not, but it does mean I've got something available here on the board for two weeks in a row, so it should get credit for that!

Here's the track list:
  1. Sweetie Bear
  2. Billy Boy
  3. Tammy
  4. Sixteen Tons
  5. The Little Tin Soldier
  6. Little Goldie Goldfish
  7. Oh Dear What Can the Matter Be
  8. Take Me Out to the Ballgame
  9. A Hunting We Will Go
  10. My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean
  11. I've Been Working on the Railroad
  12. Beautiful Dreamer
  13. Cindy Oh Cindy
  14. Frere Jacques

Twist to the Oldies with Fats and the Chessmen


Here's an album that tied into the dance craze at the time, the twist. It features a number of old songs fitted into a twist tempo. As with any album like this, it works better for some of these than with others. I prefer the ones that include singing by a cut-rate Chubby Checker sound-alike. Hope you like it!

Here's the track list:
  1. Twistin' School Days
  2. Bill Bailey, Please Come Home
  3. Boogie Woogie Twist
  4. The Camptown Twisters
  5. Give My Regards to Broadway
  6. Sweet Rosie O' Grady
  7. Twistin' Through the Park
  8. Ja-Da
  9. And the Band Played On
  10. Sweet Adeline Twist
  11. Man on the Flying Trapeze
  12. Yankee Doodle Twist
  13. When the Saints Come Twistin' In

Goldilocks - Bing Crosby


Hey, I'm back! Here's an album that looks to have been based on a TV special about Goldilocks and the Three Bears, featuring the voices of Bing Crosby, his wife Kathryn, son Nathaniel, and Mary Frances Crosby as Goldilocks. Those bears better be careful. She shot J.R., so there's no telling what she'd do to bears! Also featured is Paul Winchell doing a variation of his Dick Dastardly voice. Enjoy!

Mars Production Library Times Two!


Here's an album a bit off the beaten track for me. When stores wanted to advertise on television or radio and couldn't afford to have a professional group write a jingle for them, stations could use a sort of "canned" jingle for them that they would get from a record like this (or actually, like these since I've combined two different albums here). You get a generic jingle about how great your barbershop, clothing store or furniture store is, and somewhere in there a local announcer would give the name of your store. It's sort of the best of both worlds here. I'm not exactly sure when this came out, but it has a very sixties feel. Anyway, I think this is a lot of fun, and I hope you do too!

Here's the track list:
  1. Insects
  2. Self Service Laundry
  3. Car Sales
  4. Money Loans
  5. Phonograph Records
  6. Car Service
  7. Beauty Salon
  8. Body & Fender Shop

Children Are People Featuring Tony Randall


Hey, I'm back! (Yes, again.) Here's an odd little album featuring Tony Randall and a chorus teaching us that we (as kids) were people that deserved to be heard and paid attention to. This is another one of those albums that sounds well-intentioned, but doesn't sound like something I would have listened to more than once as a kid. Anyway, I hope you enjoy it!

Here's the track list:
  1. We Are People
  2. No One Asks Me
  3. We Learn From What They Do
  4. Don't Talk to Strangers
  5. They Don't Always Let Me Speak

The Three Stooges and Six Funny Bone Stories [LINKS FIXED!]


I'm back with an album from the Three Stooges (or at least what the current lineup of them was at the time) : Larry, Moe, and Curly Joe. They're performing in a series of stories that occur when they (as janitors) help to clean up a professor's Time Rocket. Wrong switches are hit (What do you expect when you get the Three Stooges to clean your stuff?), and they end up back in time. No, actually they end up in different fairy tales, so I'm not sure why this was referred to as a Time Rocket and not something like a Story Rocket. Oh well, I don't write this stuff!

Speaking of time, I'm not exactly sure when this album was recorded. This Stooge lineup came about when their old shorts were replayed on TV (which started in the late fifties - early sixties I believe), but this album looks newer than that. I'm guessing it's a reissue, but I can't say for certain. Anyway, enjoy!

Here's the track list:
  1. The 3 Stooges and the Time Rocket
  2. The Crash
  3. The 3 Stooges Meet Cinderella
  4. The 3 Stooges Meet the Ugly Duckling
  5. The 3 Stooges Meet the Princess & the Pea
  6. The 3 Stooges and the Magic Lamp

Songs and Stories for Children - Ray Heatherton (The Merry Mailman)


Here's an old album with familiar tales and songs performed by kid's show host Ray Heatherton, otherwise known as the Merry Mailman. He even stuck in some old songs like "I Don't Want to Play in Your Yard" and "Mommy Wouldn't Buy Me a Bow-Wow". You can learn more about him here. Enjoy!

Here's the track list:
  1. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
  2. Three Little Pigs
  3. School Days
  4. Hansel and Gretel
  5. Lazy Mary
  6. A-Tisket, A-Tasket

Geoffrey's Talking Door Bell - The Wonderland Players, Singers and Orchestra


This is the same Geoffrey Giraffe that's the mascot for Toys R Us, although here they just say that he works for a toy store. Geoffrey's also an inventor, with such great inventions as a doorbell that insults people and a car that runs on potato chips. (No, I don't understand that one either!)

Anyway, hope you like it!

Here's the track list:
  1. Geoffrey's Talking Door Bell (Song: The Talking Door Bell)
  2. Geoffrey Giraffe and the Balloon-Blowing Contest (Song: Come on Geoffrey)
  3. Geoffrey Giraffe and His Dog Problem (Song: Doggie, Won't You Please Go Home)

Bob McGrath Sings for All the Boys and Girls



Our last album of "Almost Sesame" Week features the wonderfully talented Bob McGrath doing a variety of songs, a couple of Disney ones and some popular songs of the day. Nothing quite as crazy as the stuff in the other Bob McGrath album I featured here, but pretty snazzy stuff nonetheless.

Hope you enjoyed "Almost Sesame" Week. See you next time!

Here's the track list:
  1. I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing
  2. Joy to the World
  3. The Unbirthday Song
  4. Everything Is Beautiful
  5. Black and White
  6. It's a Small World

Songs from Sesame Street 2


Here's our second album of "Almost Sesame" Week, and at least this one uses all songs from the show. They don't go too crazy trying to imitate the original singers here, and that's to their advantage. I always thought these songs were strong enough without trying to throw bad imitations on top of them.


Here's the track list:

  1. Sesame Street

  2. Everyone Makes Mistakes

  3. High Middle Low

  4. Sing

  5. I'm Pretty

  6. Someday Little Children

  7. Sesame Street (Reprise)

Sesame Street, Rubber Duckie and Other Favorites - The Rocking Horse Orchestra and Chorus


This is the first post of what I'm calling "Almost Sesame" Week. I'll be featuring two different albums of songs from "Sesame Street" done by other artists, and a third album of non-Sesame Street music by an artist best known for the show.

Here's the Rocking Horse Orchestra and Chorus with their versions of these now classic songs although, technically speaking, the only Sesame Street songs here are the theme and "Rubber Duckie". The rest are various kid's songs, including a few about the alphabet. Apparently the show was pretty new when this album came out because there's a very extensive write-up about the show on the back cover. ("No. 123 is an aged brownstone around which the show is based. This is where Gordon and Susan and Bob live. Gordon and Susan are married and they are black. Gordon is a high school science teacher. Bob is also a high school teacher and he is white.")

Anyway, enjoy the first album of "Almost Sesame" Week!

Here's the track list:
  1. Rubber Duckie
  2. It's Simple as A-B-C
  3. Ozzie the Ostrich
  4. A My Name Is
  5. Sesame Street Theme
  6. The Tail of Dickie Dragon
  7. A Song for Each Letter of the Alphabet
  8. Drag the Magic Puffin
UPDATE: Links deleted. I hope to have a working link soon!

Kiddies' Playtime Songs - The Hollywood Orchestra and Singers


Once again, here's one of those albums that takes children's classic songs from a number of sources and puts them together on one record. And you've got to give them credit; there's almost 45 minutes worth of stuff here so you're getting lots of value for your dollar (or however much this record cost when it was new).

But to be honest, my favorite part of this whole album is the cover. Some little girl (or is it a boy?) playing with an old school Mr. Potato Head, back when you had to supply your own potato! And he/she just finished working on Mr. Pepper Head before that! Pretty cool!

Anyway enjoy the album (and the cover)!

Here's the track list:
  1. Little Red Riding Hood
  2. The Farmer in the Dell
  3. Baa-Baa Black Sheep
  4. Pop Goes the Weasel
  5. Sing a Song of Sixpence
  6. The Muffin Man
  7. Jack and the Bean Stalk
  8. A Visit to Central Park
  9. Little Boy Blue
  10. The Shoemaker and the Elves
  11. Chicken-Licken

  13. The Alphabet Song
  14. Lullaby for Little Ones
  15. Where Has My Little Dog Gone?
  16. The Frog and the Ox
  17. A Visit to France
  18. Pat-A-Cake
  19. Goldie Locks and the Three Bears
  20. The Monkey Who Wanted to Fly

The 1968 Six Flags Over Texas "Red, White & Blue Revue"


This is the album I was working so hard to get on here before July 4th. If you've ever been to any large amusement park, you've probably seen a show with a similar format: a bunch of young people (mostly college aged) singing and doing their best to entertain you six times a day (more on weekends and holidays). That being said, these ladies and gentlemen do quite a nice job. The record itself, on the other hand, was giving me fits! I had a number of spots where I fought with stubborn skips, but I think I emerged triumphant for the most part thanks to some stubbornness on my part and a tube of Scratch-Off. (I don't know whether the Scratch-Off really helped that much, or if it just made me more determined to get this done.)

Anyway, most of these songs are medleys. I'm only listing the medley titles in the track list. If you want to know the individual songs, they're shown on the back cover (which is included with the download).

Finally, let me direct your eyes to that cover. Now these kids look like they're ready to do a show! You've got the ten in the front (including those Fabulous capes the ladies are wearing), a banjo player, an accordianist, a harpist, three violinist, a drummer, a bass player, and two guys who apparently play large drums with their feet. How can a show like that miss??

Enjoy, and Happy Independence Day!

Here's the track list:
  1. Overture
  2. American Music Medley
  3. Spiritual Medley
  4. Tin Pan Alley Medley
  5. Songs of the South
  6. Music of the American West
  7. Music of the Broadway Theatre

Songs of America - The Bubble Gum Singers and Orchestra


Well, here's one of the patriotic records I was going to put up in honor of Independence Day (the holiday, not the movie). I had another one I was working on, but the skips in it are proving to be quite frustrating. If I can clean it up in time, I'll get it up here. If not, I'll try again when I have more patience for it.

This is a pretty nice collection of American songs. I do like that fact that they even threw in "Aloha Oe" in honor of our 50th state. I don't know for sure when this album came out, but it probably wasn't too long after Hawaii was invited to join the party.


Here's the track list:
  1. America the Beautiful
  2. The Glendy Burke
  3. Pick a Bale of Cotton
  4. Down the Ohio
  5. Keemio Kimio
  6. Down in a Coal Mine
  7. Maple Sweet

Songs from the Motion Picture "Doctor Dolittle" - Connie Zimet, Steve Clayton and the Golden Singers


I'm back with an album of songs from the movie "Doctor Dolittle" (but I guess you figured that out from the title, huh?). As you can tell by looking at the tracks, that only applies to the first five songs here. The rest sound like they're from various sources. Now it's been a long time since I've seen the movie, so I don't know if there are more songs than that or not. Another thing I found interesting here is that this is the first time I remember specific singers out of the Golden Singers credited on the album. If you've heard very many of these (like I have), you will certainly recognize Zimet and Clayton's voices. It's nice that they got a little extra credit here.

Anyway, hope you like this!

Here's the track list:
  1. Talk to the Animals
  2. Doctor Dolittle
  3. Like Animals
  4. The Vegetarian
  5. My Friend the Doctor
  6. The Pokey Little Puppy
  7. The Tortoise and the Hare
  8. The Ugly Duckling
  9. Animal Fair
  10. Six Ducks

Steve Allen and Jayne Meadows Present - For Children Only


Here's an album geared to children written and performed by famous host and songwriter Steve Allan and his wife, actress Jayne Meadows. Also along for the ride is "Bill", who I assume is their son. The songs are nice enough, but I think they'd sound a bit too sophisticated for my taste as a young'un. "You're a Muggedy-Wump" is cute, but the song "Color Blind" (while well-intentioned) is about as subtle as a wiffle bat to the skull. Anyway, hope you enjoy this!

Here's the track list:
  1. Why
  2. Upside Down
  3. You Never Get Tired of Love
  4. Funny Raindrops
  5. Furry Little Friend
  6. The Lonely Little Boy
  7. You're a Muggedy-Wump

Der Wienerschnitzel Presents - Up-Up and Away in My Beautiful Balloon


All right, maybe one of you can explain this to me. Why would the Der Wienerschnitzel restaurant put out an album by a mariachi band? (And this is the second one. The back cover mentions a previous one by this same nameless group as well.) This is an album of Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass-lite type music. In fact, Alpert and his band probably already performed their own versions of these as well. Most of the songs work pretty well here, but "The Sound of Music" doesn't really fit this style, does it?

Also, I can't say I know my artists that well, but does this cover sort of look like it was illustrated by Jack Rickard of Mad Magazine fame?

Here's the track list:
  1. Casino Royale
  2. Chili, Mustard and Kraut
  3. Sound of Music
  4. Georgy Girl
  5. Up-Up and Away
  6. I've Got Rhythm
  7. The More I See You
  8. Somewhere My Love
  9. Born Free
  10. Music to Watch Girls By
  11. Der Wiener Winner

A Golden Treasury of Fairy Tales


Here's a variety of fairy tales, told by all the people listed on the front of this album cover (and likely taken from various and sundry sources). Unfortunately the record doesn't say who does which one, so I'll leave that up to you. I'm pretty sure that's Art Carney doing "The Ugly Duckling" though. Some of the stories are a bit short: "Jack and the Beanstalk" ends when Jack first finds the beanstalk outside his bedroom window. OK, technically they covered both Jack and the beanstalk in the story, but that's it? And I think it was a losing battle to try to tell the story of "Heidi" in the 5 1/2 minutes allotted to it!

And I just now figured out that that blob at the bottom of the cover is an out of focus close-up of a book. I thought it was a big fluffy cloud or something.

And I apologize for not having more stuff here last week. I thought I had a couple more scheduled. That's all right. That just means that there are two more albums set for this week! (I know because I just scheduled them for sure!)

Here's the track list:
  1. The Three Bears
  2. The Ugly Duckling - Art Carney?
  3. Hansel and Gretel
  4. Jack and the Beanstalk
  5. Little Red Riding Hood
  6. The Owl and the Pussycat
  7. Heidi
  8. The Tortoise and the Hare

Tupperware 1981 Big Country Jubilee


Tupperware Tuesday concludes with this album from the 1981 Jubilee, my favorite of the three (or technically four if you count the circus themed Tupperware Jubilee album I posted a couple of years ago). I think this one is the best all-around show. It's the story of a Southern town, the good people there and the troubles caused by a money-hungry sheriff. In fact, if they ever did a "Dukes of Hazzard" musical, the song "Money Is the Root of All Evil" would be perfect for Boss Hogg.

Anyway, that's all the Tupperware Jubilee albums I've come across. I hope you've enjoyed them!

Here's the track list:
  1. Overture
  2. Country Music
  3. Goodtime Not a Lifetime
  4. Holdin' On to Love
  5. Hey, Good Buddy
  6. If You Do a Little Wrong
  7. Money Is the Root of All Evil
  8. We Can Never Be Friends

The Pre-Schooler - Melvin Kaiser


It's nearly the end of the school year, and if that means for you what it does for us, it's also dance recital season. Chances are you will have a child, sibling, grandchild, niece or nephew or friend (or maybe even yourself) involved. Many of the acts in these recitals are performed by young people (and sometimes adults) who work hard to produce some very good to excellent performances. But how are they best remembered? For the acts featuring small children who sometimes literally have to be pushed onstage, and are just as likely to cry or yell "Hi Mom!" as they are to do the steps they were taught. Yeah, they're cute (and their parents, grandparents, etc., help to guarantee a large audience), but I sometimes thought it wasn't really fair to the other people who busted their humps to perform the best they could.Anyway, this record is one that would be used for those little rugrats. The album features six sung songs, and the same songs as instrumentals, all written by this guy...This is Melvin Kaiser, and from what I read online, he was a famous dance school teacher and choreographer. When you're simply able to focus on the songs (without watching the kids dancing to them), you realize how silly these songs are. But, to be honest, they're no worse than most of the other ditties that get used for these occasions.I had to go to a number of these dance recitals in my time and, for the record, my favorite act is still the women dressed as nuns who tap danced to the George Michael song "Faith". I haven't seen any other act nearly as entertaining as that.Enjoy the record and, if you do end up going to any dance recitals coming up, be sure to acknowledge the hard work that the older kids and adults (and the teachers!) do as well.Here's the track list:I'm a Pre-School ChildSkinny the ScarecrowI Can Count to EightThe A.B.C.'s of DanceManda the PandaThe Five Basic Steps of Pre-School TapI'm a Pre-School Child (Instrumental)Skinny the Scarecrow (Instrumental)I Can Count to Eight (Instrumental)The A.B.C.'s of Dance (Instrumental)Manda the Panda (Instrumental)The Five Basic Steps of Pre-School Tap (Instrumental)Click here or here to download![...]

Playtime Songs and Activities - The Bubble Gum Singers and Orchestra


This seems to be the same group who did this album and, like that one, I like the fact that they're not just doing the same kid's songs and that, at times, they really seem to be having a good time singing this stuff. I can tell you from experience that if you're having a good time performing, your audience tends to enjoy themselves as well. Hope you like the cover as well, even though that pirate kid has some serious gut action going on there!

Here's the track list:

  2. Round the Village

  3. Strawberry Jam
