  • Kid's records

    I see quite a lotta kid's records in local charities now, but when there's 'bout 4 or 5 priced at 99p I tend to pick up none. I know of the famous ones like Happy Monsters and Bang On A Drum but don't know many more than that. I'm not just after funky stuff, I like novelty bits to use for mixtape fodder as well. Last one I picked up was Play Away which had a couple of very slightly funky tracks and some usable 'game' features on BBC records. So what other ones are worth pickin' up?

    Cheers, Rob

    A few other UK ones.....

    'Ragtime' (BBC)
    'Spin A Magic Tune' (Tempo)
    'Rupert & The Fire Bird (MFP)
    'Scooby & The Snowman Mystery' (MFP)
    'Susan Sings Sesame Street' (Wand)

    ...all should be pretty cheap when you find them.... (we needs a 'Cheap As Chips' icon)

      There's the wombles one with the drum break (i'm yet to find one so can't vouch for it.)

      I personally love "Hugga Wugga" on the muppets album

            Really? I'll have to dig it out again... i've had it since before "buying" records, thought it was all dodgy soundalike spoken word.

              Yeah, I'd vouch for the Scooby Doo record. There's a really good Yogi Bear record with a track called 'Little Red Riding Hood'. It's kinda jazz, very groovy in a Rat Pack stylee and very funny ("...she gave that wolf a karate chop...&quot.

              And Muppets music in general is fab...played out Hugga Wugga last night. 'Tenderly' is great on that album as well. Actually, no word of a lie, that is one of my all-time fave albums.

              There's an article I did on Muppets music here if you're interested: http://www.planbmag.com/columns/archives/00000009.php

                'Ragtime' (BBC)
                'Susan Sings Sesame Street' (Wand)

                If anyone should happen to have spares of either of these please, please give a shout.

                'Childrens Guide to Rhythm' is great when they talk about the drums.

                  Nice article!

                  Just out of interest, what kind of establishment let you get away with playing hugga wugga out?

                  PS cut chemist sampled the first muppet show album btw.

                    Bob McAllister - 'Album Of Wonderama' (Buddah)
                    Completely mad collection of groovy 60s kiddie madness by a US TV ventriloquist...think Rowan & Martin's Laugh In for the under 8s and you're about there.

                    Bobby & Betty Go To The Moon (Happy House) gets a lot of shout outs, but I've never actually found one

                    Oh, and 'Happy Monsters' is ace. James Brown meets sleighbells and squeaky toys. Oh yes...

                    I'm sure there are more, have to have a rummage...

                      OK, here's my (jackson) 5

                      "Mr Drummer Man" - Kids From The Brady Bunch - hey Mr Drummer Man.

                      "Funky McDonald" - Children from Zoom - he had a funky robot.

                      "Mit Sar" - Wadenius from the Scandi kids prog "Goda Goa" - Brazilian hiphop funk from 1969.

                      "Can We Rap" - Carleen & The Groovers - I understand Carleen was 15 at the time. Does this count? If so you can include "Clap Your Hands".

                        Multiplication Rock.

                        Well, with twelve digits, I mean fingers,
                        He probably would've invented two more digits
                        When he invented his number system.
                        Then, if he'd saved the zero for the end,
                        He could count and multiply by 12's,
                        Just as easily as you and I do by 10's.


                        Now, if man
                        Had been born with six fingers on each hand,
                        He's probably count: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, dek, el, do.
                        Dek and el being two entirely new signs meaning 10 and 11 - single digits.
                        And his 12, do, would've been written: one - zero.
                        Get it?
                        That'd be swell, to multiply by 12.


                        Hey, Little Twelvetoes, I hope you're well.
                        Must be some far-flung planet where you dwell.
                        If we were together you could be my cousin.
                        Down here we call 'em "a dozen."
                        Hey, Little Twelvetoes, please come back home...


                        Now, if man
                        Had been born with six fingers on each hand,
                        His children would have 'em too,
                        And when they played hide-and-go-seek, they'd count by sixes, fast.
                        And when they studied piano, they'd do their six-finger exercises,
                        And when they went to school,
                        They'd learn the Golden Rule,
                        And how to multiply by 12 easily:
                        Just put down the zero.
                        But me - I have to learn it the hard way.
                        Let me see now...


                        1 x 12 is 12, 2 x 12 is 24, 3 x 12 is 36, 4 x 12 is 48, 5 x 12 is 60,
                        6 x 12 is 72, 7 x 12 is 84, 8 x 12 is 96, 9 x 12 is 108, 10 x 12 is 120,
                        11 x 12 is 132, and 12 x 12 is 144.
                        Wow!


                        Hey Little Twelvetoes, I hope you're thrivin',
                        Some of us ten-toed folks are still survivin'.
                        If you help me with my 12's,
                        I'll help you with your 10's,
                        And we could all be friends.
                        Little Twelvetoes, please come back home.

                        The film is off the yin yang.

                            Hooded Claw - cheers mate, glad you liked the article...

                            I played Hugga Wugga at the night I run in Southport. It&#39;s nominally an &#39;indie&#39; night but we play all kinds, gets really busy as well. I&#39;ve just started a new job so I took the early slot and billed myself as playing two hours of &#39;charity shop nonsense&#39;. I &#39;got away with&#39; loads of stuff...see here: http://telepopclub.blogspot.com/

                              That 12345678910...11...12 never came out.

                              Ninja tune released it for the first time on the cookie monster 12&quot;. it has a f**king awful disco version of the cookie monster tune on one side. and that pointers sisters pinball song on the other. might be hard to get these days so dig around.
