Childcraft? Is That Like Witchcraft for Children?



Mercury Records, through its Childcraft label, put out a large number of children's discs in conjunction with the fifteen-volume Childcraft child development plan (see graphic below).

This disc is no better or worse than any other in the series, I expect, though it is ripe for sampling by those with a twisted double-entendre-seeking mind.

Thanks for posting this. I listened to this album as a kid in the '50s and recently sang "Little Willie" to my granddaughter, but couldn't remember the lyrics. Now that I've listened to the entire album, it's amazing that all the songs (and the lyrics) have come back to me as if it were just yesterday that I listened to them as a kid in Gary, Indiana. I'll be sharing this with my brother, who will get a big kick out of it, as I did.

This is actually a compilaton of former 78 singles and most are performed by singer June Winters, also known as the "Lady in Blue."
