An old favorite of ours from way back in the day

"Long before CD's were even invented, my parents and I were on vacation shopping at a record store in Washington DC, during our adoption trip for my sister. We were looking for some new music for us to add to our home library. We had all the other Raffi records they had in stock, but it just so happened that "The Corner Grocery Store," was one that we did NOT have at the time, so we bought it. I used to tape it onto a cassette so that we could have it as a car tape, and also to give as gifts to people who were having children. It has some great hits, beginning with the Ella Jenkins classic "You Sing a Song and I'll Sing a Song," and ending with an adaptation of the Weavers Classic "Goodnight Irene." I'd have to say, that our family's favorite track on the whole album is "Knees Up Mother Brown." My sister used to love to dance to that song, and we have video tape of her dancing to that song while my Dad sang it. Contrary to popular belief, Raffi did not write that song. It's a very old tune. By the way, did you know that when they made the Disney movie "Mary Poppins," the choreographer used that tune to teach Dick Van Dyke and the chimney sweeps the choreography to Step in Time?
All in all, this is a first rate recording and one that every child should have. I still listen to our VERY OLD cassette now and then. FOR GOODNESS SAKE STOP READING THIS REVIEW AND BUY THE CD!"
