Alan Mills: 14 Numbers, Letters, and Animal Songs CD
"This item is part of the Folkways archives. The original liner notes from the LP are included."
Designed to familiarize young children with numbers and letters, this album was largely intended for elementary school use. Alan Mills sings a potpourri of simple songs—some traditional, some he composed himself, and many involving animals. Accompanying Alan Mills on guitar is Bram Morrison, a talented folksinger in his own right, who is a member of the children’s song trio Sharon, Lois and Bram.
Alan Mills (1913-1977) forsook a career in journalism to become a prominent Canadian folksinger, actor, and the host of a folk music radio show for children. His singing may be heard on over 20 Smithsonian Folkways recordings, for adults as well as for young people.
Liner notes provide a brief biography of Alan Mills and song lyrics.
