Frank Luther recorded in a variety of genres, but it legendary mostly for his children's records. He made some records my mother loved, particularly a couple of 78's featuring a set of songs by A. A. Milne, and those records are pretty wonderful. This one tries hard to convince the listener that, yes, "Manners Can Be Fun", but the end result seems more like lecturing then it does the explanation of something fun.
Compare with the low budget Peter Pan releases I offered up in the 365 Days project, which are just as didactic, and clearly had a quarter of the musical budget. And yet those records are a hell of a lot of fun, and as a result, they got played to death by my brother and me when we were kids. I don't perceive the same level of "fun" when I listen to this record, although it was clearly quite well loved (i.e. it's beat to hell, as you'll hear) by whoever owned it before me, so what do I know?
