The Do-Re-Mi Children's Chorus Sing the Songs from "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" and Other Favorites

I'm not familiar with the Do-Re-Mi Children's Chorus, but according to the back cover of this album they did quite a few records. I hope to find some more of them soon. Until then, enjoy this collection of songs from the movie "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" and some other songs thrown in, including a rather swinging version of "Java Jive" that I really like, especially considering it's being sung by kids!

(Here's a little bit of trivia for you: Did you know that the book "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" was written by Ian Fleming, author of the James Bond books? I guess Truly Scrumptious is supposed to be a G-rated version of a Bond girl's name!)

Here's the track list:
  1. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
  2. Hushabye Mountain
  3. The Roses of Success
  4. Toot Sweets
  5. Truly Scrumptious
  6. Me Ol' Bamboo
  7. Dear World
  8. The Wonderful Things (That He Can Do)
  9. A Bushel and a Peck
  10. Mr. Clown
  11. Java Jive

I knew Fleming wrote "Chitty Chitty," but didn't connect the Truly Scrumptious name. I guess Honey Rider or Pussy Galore would have garnered too many uncomfortable questions to parents from their young readers....

Hey! I'm new to the family and I grew with wonderful children releases such as these.. If you have the DO RE MI Children's Chorus album with Up,Up, and Away and Green Tambourine, could you PLEASE post that one?!! Or any of the Sesame Street Albums, Berts Blockbusters, Grover, Ernie. THANKS!
