Puff and Toot and Other Musical Stories - Twinkle Orchestra and Chorus


I was going to tell you about this exciting album of train (and clown) songs, but I think the liner notes on the back of the album will do a much better job than I will. (Note the punctuation and spelling are exactly as they're found in the quote) :

Hi there, the jolly conductor of Twinkle Records tells us that he is all set to take us on an imaginative trip to adventure land with Puff & Toot.

We can't wait . . . First we'll ride the Red Caboose and we'll see Squeegie the Clown and stop Down By The Station. But Oh then . . . we can ride the Chocolate Train . . . isn't that exciting? Just think a Chocolate Train all for us. I can't wait can you. Well climb on cause here we go..."ALL ABOARD".

Hi, it's me again. I was going to tell you guys to curtail any "Chocolate Train" jokes, but whoever wrote this seems to dwell on it a bit TOO much if you ask me. And if they wanted us to be excited, you'd think they would have put at least one exclamation point in there. Anyway, this really is a fun combination of train songs (most likely from a number of different sources), so enjoy!

Here's the track list:


  1. Puff and Toot

  2. The Red Caboose

  3. Chocolate Train

  4. Squeegie the Happy Clown

  5. Down by the Station

  6. I've Been Working on the Railroad

  7. Circus

  8. Where Do Ya Worka John

"I can't wait can you."

No better way to promote excitement for an album than through the use of a run-on sentence with poor punctuation.

Classic.
