Sleeve Notes by Tim Hart

Many years ago, after a hard day in the pram, there was nothing I liked better than to relax and listen to a good record; but so often I found there was nothing that I really liked.

“So a few friends and I decided that one day, when we were a little older, we would get together and make a record that we could all enjoy.

Well, I'm a bit older now with children of my own and they think this record's great... but then I am their dad!

My friends and I had a lot of fun making this record and I hope that you will have as much fun listening to it. It's a record for the young with the not so young in mind. So from one ex-child to another, believe me this is the Best Nursery Rhyme Record ever.

Happy Listening,
  Tim Hart
