Burl Ives Sings Little White Duck
by Burl Ives
Released: Jan 1960
Now this is really what music for children is all about. Simple folk songs with great melodies and lyrics about ducks and stuff. It takes a very special man who can sing songs about mice, frogs and donuts, and maintain his dignity. Ives is that man. In fact, he brings out the inherent sadness in "The Sow Took The Measles" in a way that would make Leonard Cohen jealous.
