Editor's note: a great little record about fire engines! The first side is rather 1950s television commercial jinglelism but the second side featuring Steve Sahlein gets a bit more avant-garde. I think a few parts of the second side sound a litlle like early Violent Femmes before there were VF's! If you were a fem back then they would take you behind the barn and flog you in more ways than one. But this is a kid's records so let's keep your biases and ugly other-faces out of it, world.
