Sing a Rainbow and Other Children's Songs - Ginni Clemmens

'60s folk singer Clemmens sings children's songs, accompanying herself on the guitar and the banjo.  A bunch of kids help out.  You can't really argue with that.  Well, you could, but you'd be dead inside.  It's not all cute, however, Jane-Jane is intense, while Hey Little Boy isn't like any song we learned when I was a kid.  Highlight is This Old Man, with a skeletal banjo part, military rhythm, and a kid coming in with his line too early. But 'that's ok', says Clemmens, and it is.
