"Our special secret game..." Eeccch! This would have been phony, condescending and creepy to me even when I was a kid in the 60s. There were some really good records for young kids then, but this was not one of them!

I loved our Pete Seeger, Oscar Brand, and other Folkways records. I would have loved Ella Jenkins if we had any of her records.

My favorite of all was a record called Come and See the Peppermint Tree. Have not been able to find hide nor hair of it now. It was a story told mostly in song and very expressive piano accompaniment. Wish I could track it down!

This is exactly the sort of odd recording that makes this website so much fun to visit everyday. Thanks the posting! Keep'em coming.



The history of vinyl is awash with such oddities.
This may have been some sort of test pressing
or a future part of a larger format LP

To me, seven minutes on each side sounds just right for a 78 rpm record

I'm not a big fan of investigating too much when it
comes to something like this - obviously more information will
only ruin the mysterious and innocent charm of the record

At this point, it's just a cute children's record
with some somewhat strange undetrones.
I doubt if it's anything more than that

Nice find! Keep em spinning our way!


this is so entertaining and bizarre. thanks thanks always

Bob - this is incredible. 2 questions haunt me. What on earth would possess a company to think this was a good idea.

And 2- What parent would think this sort of thing healthy?

I bow to your collection.
