What's the story?

CHILDREN'S FAVORITE SONGS, VOLUME 1, from Walt Disney Records, includes more than two dozen kiddie classics. Most likely, some songs will already be familiar to children, but young listeners who don't yet know these songs will love learning them--as kids have for generations. They'll have a great time joining in with the many kids' choruses.

Is it any good?


The recording features Larry Grace's fine lead voice on all tracks; and a nice variety of instrumental solos plus unexpected tempo changes help to maintain everyone's interest throughout. Although some parents may wish for more contemporary sounds and some kids may tire of a few old-fashioned arrangements, the bottom line is that this collection of classic songs is a strong addition to any child's listening experience.
