Overview

In 1991, Little Richard's rendition of "The Itsy Bitsy Spider" was the highlight of Disney's For Our Children compilation, leading to this full-length collection, which is his first newly-recorded album in six years and his first children's album ever. Taking on 12 children's songs (including his own "Keep a Knockin'," appropriately peppered with knock-knock jokes), Little Richard re-arranges them to sound like the kind of '50s rock & roll for which he's famous. So, for example, "Old MacDonald" bears a certain resemblance to "Boney Maronie." It's all good fun, though, since it's also all uptempo, but you may not want to play it all the way through for small children; they're apt to get overexcited.
