Edgar Kendricks Sings for the Very Young

Edgar Kendricks Sings for the Very Young

On his second album for Folkways Records, vocal coach and Sesame Street songwriter Edgar Kendricks sings a collection of gospel-tinged nursery rhymes accompanied by piano, conga drums, and backup singers. Each of the songs contains a specific learning lesson for children. Topics include reading, writing, manners, and the four seasons, all delivered with Kendricks’ good-natured conviction. This is a perfect record for gospel and soul music fans with small children. Liner notes include lyrics and images.
