The demography of Mudcatters (especally in the UK ) leads me to believe that a lot of us are associated with the Grandparents era.

I must stress that I don't know this individual - but I have met him on on or two occasions some 40 years ago and honestly have no connections whatsoever with him or the Project I'm going to talk about.
Disclaimer made...........

Without me giving my family tree and a lot of typing, We have Jessica 15 months - my Son's daughter , and Sam 3 months - my daughters boy.
We searched for nursery rhymes to play in the car and at bedtime, and we wanted "tasteful" songs and tunes / accompanyment, but, the market is plagued by plastic sounding stuff often with too much bass etc and little thought of presentation.
Never mind ,it was a nice idea to try to find something decent but it obviously doesn't exist.
I was then put on the trail by someone..........My Very Favourite Nursery Rhyme Record Tim Hart And Friends CD.
I sampled on Google.
I got mine on line from Sainsbury £7.99.
You wouldn't believe how good , and professional it is, especially with the delightful singing of Maddy Prior amongst others.
Apparently it's been around since 1981. There's over 30 tracks so it doesn't screw YOU up as you're driving along - and Jessica and Sam are well pleased - not to mention their Mums and Dads.
I stress I have no connection with the product in any direction whatsoever - I'm simply trying to do a good turn for people who may be in a similar quandry as I was.

Just got it from Amazon. Bit more expensive at £9.48 but we get free delivery and an MP3 version. Thanks Betsy - William (5) and James (3) will love it. As will their Gnomish Grandad :-)

Cheers

When my son was young enough to still practice trick-or-treating, we took him to the "Zoo Boo", a kids' Halloween event at the Como Park Zoo here in St. Paul, and he came home with a bag of goodies. One of the items was a mix tape consisting of various pop songs selected especially for kids. My son loved it. It got played over and over on our car stereo until it wore out. Some of the songs were boring (to me) bubble-gum music, but some of it was quite good. One song that stands out in my memory, and which I grew to love myself, was LEAN ON ME by Bill Withers, from 1972. Excerpt:
    You just call on me, brother, when you need a hand.
    We all need somebody to lean on.
    I just might have a problem that you'll understand.
    We all need somebody to lean on.

    Lean on me when you're not strong,
    And I'll be your friend; I'll help you carry on,
    For it won't be long
    Till I'm gonna need somebody to lean on.
What could be better than that? Not everything has to be folk music.

Arrived today. Downloaded the MP3 as well. Exceptional production quality and not all folk music either! Just good quality songs that the little 'uns know and will sing along to. Looking forward to our first long car journey. :-)

BTW - How do you turn a duck into a soul singer?

Put it in the oven until it's bill withers...

I can thoroughly recommend

Lullabies with Mandolins.

Again, no connections with artist, just a thoroughly satisfied listener.
