The ABC Children's Chorus: Songs for Children...By Children

Here's an odd little record featuring songs for children by children like "How Much Is That Doggie in the Window", "Little White Duck", and "These Boots Were Made for Walkin'". HUH?? This whole album seems to come from two different directions. On the back of the album they mention that these twelve kids ranging in age from 9 to 14 sing just like they would if "they joined voices with the kids around the block". Then it mentions how the individual youngsters have appeared on Broadway, television, and TV commercials! Regardless, this is a fun album that I hope you'll enjoy. (And where else will you hear twelve kids singing to the wordless Herb Alpert song "Tijuana Taxi"?)

Here's the track list:
  1. Dominique
  2. Happiness Is
  3. How Much Is That Doggie in the Window?
  4. I Whistle a Happy Tune
  5. Tijuana Taxi
  6. Chim Chim Cheree
  7. Batman Theme
  8. Little White Duck
  9. It's Superman
  10. Tears and Roses
  11. These Boots Are Made for Walkin'
  12. On Top of Spaghetti

This was one of my favorite albums when I was a child. I feared it was lost in the mists of time.

When I was a kid (approx. 45 yrs ago) my parents bought a record of this group (different kids now). I'd love to get a copy of the songs from back then so I can play it for my great nephews.
