Songs for Kids


Once upon a time, before you kids were born, I made two children’s cassettes. “No Grownups Allowed” in 1985, and “Bouncy Bouncy” in 1987. (I wrote kids songs when MY kids were little, and somehow didn’t really keep that going when they grew up!)

“No Grownups Allowed” is my only album to go “GOLD”… helped by the fact that back then you could buy it for 1.99 at Shopper’s Drug Mart if you bought a pack of Pampers with it! There was even a colouring book that went with it, published by Golden Books! I’ve put them together on this CD, released in 2000 with the bonus track “Gypsy Sock” recorded also in 2000. They feature my son Evan when he was 5 years old doing the introductions!

When I go to the zoo, I find the people to be more interesting to look at than the animals sometimes
