Alley Cat and Chicken Fat Plus Other Fun Dances - The Golden Orchestra and Chorus

Here's a record of games and dances for kids. I seem to remember having a pretty old 45 with this version of "Drop the Handkerchief" and "Button Button", so this could be another compilation of songs from various sources. Anyway, some neat stuff here, and I hope you like it!

Here's the track list:
  1. Alley Cat
  2. Chicken Fat
  3. Musical Chairs
  4. Button Button
  5. Drop the Handkerchief
  6. Skip to My Loo
  7. The Farmer in the Dell
  8. Bingo
  9. Follow the Leader
  10. Simon Says
  11. My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean/Good Morning to You
  12. Clap Your Hands/Springfield Mountain/The World Turned Upside Down
  13. Hokey Pokey

Nice blog. As a child I had the "Theme From Star Wars" LP from Wonderland Records and the "Alley Cat" record was advertised on the back. I always wondered what it sounded like. Now I know. Thanks.

Wow. This takes me back. In '75, my third grade teacher had a copy of this LP and would play it in th afternoon as part of our music hour. I have found many versions of Alley Cat and even the original Robert Preston Chicken Fat, but I had pretty much given up on ever seeing this album again. Thanks so much for this.

Can I just say, You just brought tears to my eyes!

I LOVED this record to death when I was little (and drove my cousins NUTS with it, because I'd act like a Drill Sergeant to get everyone to "Left to the Left and the Right to the Right"....

Memories - I thought were gone forever! Thanks ever so much!
