About this Recording
NA227912 - Collection: Sparky's Magic Piano and other children's favourites

Sparky's Magic Piano
Tubby the Tuba
The Laughing Policeman
and other Children's Favourites
Compiled by Peter Dempsey

Since the beginning of the recording era, the radio, the 78 and LPs have produced an unforgettable list of Classic Children's Favourites. Here, on this unique set, are many of the finest, performed by great stars of the past. Danny Kaye presents Tubby the Tuba and others; Spike Jones sings Old Macdonald Had A Farm, Harold Fraser-Simson is At Buckingham Palace (with Christopher Robin). There is The Runaway Train, The Owl and the Pussy Cat, The Teddy Bears' Picnic and I Taut I Taw A Puddy Tat. On a gentler note, the inimitable Paul Robeson sings Little Man, You've Had A Busy Day. There is the cut-glass accent of Uncle Mac, the uninhibited rasp of Popeye.

A delight for parents, grandparents and children alike.
