Thoroughly loved this album as a 4-year old until The Siamese Cat Song developed a skip. Never have liked Siamese Cats since!
I remember my mother buying this for me at the Gulf gas station in the late 60's....I spent hours listening to these songs and taping it on my Dads reel to reel tape recorder...think I got in trouble for that.
What a wonderful thing to listen to these beloved, forgotten songs.
I remember playing this in the mid 70s. Still have it at stored my parent home. Wil have to dig it out and see if it will still play.
Still have this record from when i was a child in the early 70s. Will have to dig it out and see if it still plays
The recording of "Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf" is the same one used on the 1961 "Story and Songs of the Three Little Pigs" LP and the "See Hear Read" read-along book-and-audio sets. I recognize that girlish Practical Pig voice and that eerie, menacing wolf voice anywhere!
I remember, on a warm summer evening, riding in the backseat when my grandfather stopped at the local Gulf and got a fill up for the Comet and this album for me. I was three and I cherished this album. He passed away when I was five. Brings back fond memories a tear to my eye whenever I hear any of these songs and especially when I hear Burl Ives. Thanks for submitting.
I enjoyed the compilation so much as it made me remember about my childhood. My father had a collection of these songs back in those days and he used to play them in the Christmas days. It was a nostalgic ride listening to the songs.
I also remember my mom buying me these records at gulf station I used to love them. I still have the stek knives she got from gulf too in the late 60s early 70s
My mom got this record when she was young and then handed it down to me and I loved it so much as a child. I'm so happy I get to hear it again on here since the record player is long long gone.
I wish I could find the version of Lavender Blue that's on here somewhere else though. I've listened to 20 different versions of the song and can't seem to find the right one!
