So much better than the usual sickly children's tunes. Fabulously talented musicians. Fresh funny songs. Beautifully played on the real instruments. Lots of different styles. Traditional , country , new takes on old songs. Hope to see all the albums on itunes. All firm favourites with our family. Well worth the money. Wish they were still recording more. If you enjoy the strings look out for Simon Mayors solo albums too.
Many years later...
I grew up with this on cassette tape, I am now 25 but this still sticks in my memory as it was funny and catchy- I still find myself humming a few of these songs every now and then! And many years later I find myself recommending it to friends with small children :)
Great songs, bit different to the same old nursery rhymes and with a sense of humour!
