Dennis the Menace (in one of the comic books) once said "I like Spikey 
Jones music." Spike's "Old MacDonald" is fabulous..I'm sure it's been 
Now then, the other night I was working on a batch of tracks by The 
Goldman Band, and "Children's March" came up (mid 30s recording for 
Associated Transcriptions). I wondered if any kids today would recognize 
ANY of the tunes in this arrangement?
p.s. Goldman Band transcription tracks now available from me.

  When I was a small children I had the usual Golden records and other
  kiddie labels that kids enjoyed. I was, of course, a kid! But I also 
  Spike Jones and Stan Freberg records as well. Why haven't they been
  considered here? Too adult?? Yeah, but... Spike fell back on kid's
  material toward the end of his recording career at RCA Victor. 
  his "regular" material should not be ruled out. Nothing better than
  whiz-bangs and crazed tenor banjo players to make a kid smile. Freberg
  appealed to kids of all ages, and still does. His teevee ads were 
  encapsulated genius, as well. If kids can dig the droll puns in Rocky 
  Bullwinkle they'll love Freberg.
