Bullfrog Jumped: Children's Folksongs from the Byron Arnold Collection

Performers Various Artists

Alabama Traditions | December 9, 2010 | Compact Disc

Not yet rated | write a review
Byron Arnold was a music professor at the University of Alabama who, over a period of three years in the 1940s, went out in the field to "catch" the songs, lullabies, games, and field chants of the everyday folks of Alabama. He eventually published articles and books about the experience, and released some of the music on 78-rpm discs.
This 2007 CD culls almost 50 of those recordings, particularly the kid-friendly ones, and comes with a 72-page booklet with lyrics and information. In an era when children's music can sound prepackaged, precocious, and soulless, this collection is a breath of fresh air.
