Thread Name: Kids'CD/songbook from Teaching Tolerance
Subject: RE: Kids'CD/songbook from Teaching Tolerance
Just to set the record straight (You remember records, right? Like CD's, only bigger, and black), the version of my song "Walkin' On My Wheels" that was used on this CD was recorded by Grammy nominees Cathy Fink and Marcy Marxer on their CD "Nobody Else Like Me" -- although it's sung by a young lady named Meghan McNeily. I'd also like to acknowledge Bob Reid of Santa Cruz, CA, who "tweaked" the song musically when he recorded it back in the late 80s, and improved it tremendously over my more pedestrian version. Bob's rendition is the one Cathy and Marcy used.
PS There's also an interesting discussion of the song, including some thoughtful criticism, on this recent thread.
