Galloping on My Dinosaur and Other Fun Songs for Children - Larry Thor

I'm not familiar with Larry Thor, but according to the Internet Movie Database he did quite a bit of work on radio and TV, appearing in such series as The Munsters, Leave It to Beaver, Gilligan's Island, and The Andy Griffith Show. These are some fun little songs written by Thor himself that simply feature him and his guitar. With all the crazy orchestrated and synthesized albums I normally hear, this is a very pleasant change of pace. Hope you like it!

Here's the track list:
  1. Sad Day, Lonely Day
  2. The Gimme Pig
  3. When You Hurt
  4. Picnic
  5. Answer Every Question
  6. Matinee Lullaby
  7. Scary Song
  8. Since You Went Away
  9. Worry Time
  10. TV Song
  11. Galloping on My Dinosaur
  12. Lullaby

This was my grandfather! This has been a closely guarded album in the family (I'm not sure why), as it should be shared just like you're doing here! The guitar was done by another guy.

"I want to be me, individual me."

Good stuff.

Thanks for putting it up!!!!

Thank you, "Way Out Junk" for getting this on the web! My name is Cameron Thor, I'm the four year old giving my dad a dirty look on the back cover, and it's great to hear from Kristjan Thor! So many people ask me where they can get this as it is WAY out of print and I'm grateful to you that I can send them to your sight to grab it and share it with their children too. Family prejudice aside, it really is a great record!

Thank you for making this wonderful record available! It was my very favorite when I was a kid, and I'm thrilled to be able to hear it again.
