Editor's note: although some of these songs wouldn't fit my description of children songs I think the title is loosely worded to include 40 year old children as well. That said, it's a brilliant album! Minstrel versions of traditional songs with a lot of inventiveness. The two tracks I picked out for single downloads, and especially "Butter", are quite nice and rather exceptional. One for the music ("Butter") and the other for both singing and instrumentation.
