VA - Time Life Wacky Favourites [1998] (3 x CD's)



VA - Time Life Wacky Favourites [1998] (3 x CD's)

Time Life's Wacky Favorites was purched as a 3CD set. These have been our family's fave. Mr Bassman is fantastic. Who put the Bop... is really cool. This helped me introduce my kids to music other than the sugary pop on the radio now. So many fun classics on these CD's. My kids actually request this disc when we travel. Even my 14 year old son. I highly recomend this to anyone who likes music. The songs will make you laugh (The Mississippi Squirrel Revival) and sing along (Itsy Bitsy Teeny Yellow Polka Dot... go ahead finish it, I know it's in your head now.) to everyone of them. Enjoy it with your kids. Full of jazzy tunes and a good laugh to remember some of these old favorites.
