Children's Sing Along


Here's an album that, going by the cover, looks like another mishmash of songs from various sources. I mean, there's no photographs of the singers, just a plain picture. And the track list is actually printed on top of the title here, almost like an afterthought. But looks are deceiving here. Not only do all these songs sound like they are performed by the same children's chorus, but this is the same group with the same version of "Sidewalks of New York" that I enjoyed on this album that WAS from a mixture of sources. This is an entire album with these kids, and I really like it. I am reminded once again that "Jingle Bells" isn't really a Christmas song here, and there's some other really rousing songs as well, all done in that great spirited way as "Sidewalks" was. Take a listen to this one. I think you'll enjoy it!

By the way, I apologize once again for my absence. I have my thesis to do next week and I'm trying to prep for it!

Here's the track list:
  1. Jingle Bells
  2. Standing in Need
  3. Banjo's Back in Town
  4. Give Me That Old Time Religion
  5. Sidewalks of New York
  6. Bunker Hillbillies Theme Song
  7. Oh Susanna
  8. Buffalo Gals
  9. Clementine
  10. When the Saints Go Marching In
