Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Tom T. Hall writes songs for children, he says, because they have a lot of the same interests, including the quest for simplicity. "One day I just found that we got along great. They understood me," he says. And in this compilation of songs from the '70s and '80s, Hall demonstrates his knowledge of the magic between children and animals and the thrill of taking a trip with the imagination, especially to Hall's own Fox Hollow farm, where such characters as Sneaky Snake, Randy Raccoon, and Ole Lonesome George, the basset hound, await. With the storytelling skills he gleaned as a child in the hills of Kentucky, Hall makes many of his songs into fables. "The Song of the One Legged Chicken," for example, teaches a valuable lesson about disability and difference. While other songs bring soothing comfort or merely raise a smile ("A mink wears a mink coat the whole year round"), and still others encourage play-acting, they all become treasures by the record's end. Packaged with a sing-along booklet. --Alanna Nash

I was playing with my 10 month old boy and all of a sudden I stared singing the words to Sneaky Snake? I am now thirty and this was a favorite song of my childhood. I then had to try and figure out who sang them. I looked up Amazon and there it was, still available, Tom T. Hall. Now the weird thing is that I am Australian and not particularly inclined towards Country & Western music! This Album IS loads of fun with fascinating stories that inspire young imaginations. The songs are catchy but guarenteed not to drive a parent mad after hearing it 500 times, even parents will sing these songs. I sincerely recommend it to parents with young children, excellent for car rides and afteroons of fun, singing and dancing. I am ever so pleased that it is still around.

By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 8 Mar. 2003
Format: Audio CD
There has never been anybody quite like Tom T Hall, the country singer who was able to tell stories of everyday life within the limits of a song. The most famous song he wrote was Harper Valley PTA, a story about parents of schoolchildren, which was a huge hit for Jeannie C Riley.
Tom T Hall recorded two albums of songs for children. All the tracks from Songs of Fox Hollow (1974) plus seven of the eleven songs from Country songs for kids (1988) are to found on this CD, though it seems a little bit mean of the record company to leave out the four songs, as there is room for them. That said, I haven't heard the other four songs and the price is reasonable for the eighteen songs here.
Two of the songs - I love (the opening track) and I care - are classic songs that would not be out of place on any Tom T Hall album. I first came across them on a hits compilation of his, and didn't even think they would have first appeared on a children's album.
The remaining songs are definitely targeted at children - but there's a child in all of us. If you enjoy Tom's normal music, you will find that his style of singing suits the songs here. Many of them are inspired by animals to be found on a farm - snakes, foxes, dogs, birds, chickens and ducks - although one of the songs is about a raccoon.
This is an excellent album for children of all ages.

My family likes listening to this CD in the car. And my youngest son (aged 4) knows all the words to most of the songs after only a few weeks! It's fun and lighthearted music to sing along to - some songs are better than others. We love "I love", "Sneaky Snake", "Barn Dance", "I like to feel pretty inside" and "The Song of the One Legged Chicken"! Really don't like "I wish I had a million friends" - it's pretty creepy!
