When I was a little boy, my mom had a children's album entitled "Lucy and Carly Simon sing songs for Children." My mom no longer has the record and I have tried to find it in music stores, special ordering, record shops, ect. Does anyone know how I could get hold of a copy. I would prefer CD but beggers can't be choosers and I don't know if it was ever released on CD. Thanks...

Jason

I have a vague recollection of seeing this recording as a CD in my local Tower Records (or was in Borders?) a month or two ago--but I'm not sure if it was the Lucy & Carly Simon recording itself or just the cut "Wynken Blynken & Nod" by them excerpted and pastiched on an anthology CD...

I tried to do a search of on-line commercial CD sellers earlier tonight and got nowhere...but maybe if you or someone else searches more persistently...

I've been looking for the Lucy and Carly album for a long time, too. Somebody sent me a poor-quality tape of it and now I can't find it. It really was good, though. As I recall, it was traditional children's songs and some of Lucy's musical settings of children't poems ("Owl and the Pussycat" was on it, I think). Didn't Lucy do the music for the Broadway musical, "The Secret Garden"?
Hanrahan, how much of the Sesame Street album is Lucy and Carly, and how much by other artists?

I have seen 2 different Simon Sisters albums at a local vinyl outlet recently. Send me an e-mail if you want me to pursue the matter any further.

Rich... I don't know your email address so I can't contact you that way...but YES I would love it if you could check into the albums for me. I would really like to get my hands on both of them (even both of them are the same album)...my mom would also love a copy of that. please let me know how much $ they are, condition, ect if possible.

Thanks, jason

As you can see from my 1998 post above, I've wanted a Lucy and Carly Simon CD for what is now a long, long time. Well, I got my wish - Winkin', Blinkin' and Nod: The Kapp Recordings just came out. It's very good, but I have to say it's not what I expected. The fabled Simon Sisters album is a collection of children's songs. I heard a poor-quality tape of it, and it was wonderful. Anybody know anything about the album I'm still seeking?


Here's the track listing for the new CD:

1. So Glad I'm Here
2. Breton Lullaby
3. Delia
4. Will You Go Laddie Go
5. Chicken Road
6. Once I Had a True Love
7. Wind Spiritual
8. Winkin', Blinkin' and Nod
9. À la Claire Fontaine
10. Rise Up
11. Lorca Lullaby
12. Waley, Waley (The Water Is Wide)
13. Sano Duso
14. Cuddlebug
15. If You Go Down to the Water
16. Dink's Blues
17. Turn, Turn, Turn
18. Hold Back the Branches
19. Écoute Dans le Vent [Blowin' in the Wind]
20. Motherless Child
21. No One to Talk My Troubles To
22. My Fisherman, My Laddie O!
23. Feuilles-Oh (Leaves)
24. If I Had a Ribbon Bow
25. Pale Horse and Rider

If anyone should get a hold of these albums and would like to have them transcribed to CD, I would be happy to do it for you.

"The Simon Sisters - Lucy & Carly", Kapp #KL-1359 has the following tracks:
Side 1

Chicken Road
Once I Had A True Love
Wind Spiritual

Side 2
Winkin', Blinkin' and Nod
A La Claire Fontain

so they are all on the new CD above.

LP not dated but lists Carly as twenty, and Lucy as twenty three.

  2. "Calico Pie"
  3. "The Lamplighter"
  4. "The Owl And The Pussycat"
  5. "Sleep, Baby, Sleep"
  6. "The Lamb"
  7. "The Lobster Quadrille"
  8. "Who Has Seen The Wind"
  9. "I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day"
  10. "A Red, Red Rose"
  11. "A Pavane For The Nursery"

More information and a full discography at Wikipedia.

I had this album in a box in my basement, dug itout last night and played it. Good stuff. I had forgotten I ever owned it, so thanks for the thread, it reminded me of the album.

Here's the track listing for the other Kapp album, Cuddlebug (Kapp KL-1397 Mono Kapp KS-3397 Stereo). Looks like the new CD covers all the tracks from both Kapp albums.

  1. "Cuddlebug (The Happiness Blanket)"
  2. "If You Go Down To The Water"
  3. "Dinks Blues"
  4. "Turn, Turn, Turn"
  5. "Hold Back The Branches"
  6. "Ecoute Dans La Vent (Blowin' In The Wind)"
  7. "Motherless Child"
  8. "No One To Talk My Troubles To"
  9. "My Fisherman, My Laddie Oh"
  10. "Feuilles Oh (Leaves)"
  11. "If I Had A Ribbon Bow"
  12. "Pale Horse And Rider"


There were two Columbia albums, The Simon Sisters Sing The Lobster Quadrille And Other Songs For Children and The Simon Sisters Sing for Children - both have the same tracks. I understand "Sing for Children" is a remix of "Quadrille." So, I sure hope that Columbia album comes out.

Hey Joe, I saw what I think is the album you're looking for in a second hand shop today, it kinda rung a bell and I just found this thread. If you are still interested I can get it and put it on CD for you. Let me know.

The Simon Sister Sing for Children is being reissued on CD on December 2, 2008 on Shout Factory Records. It's listed on Allmusic.com -- search Carly Simon, then discogrophy.
