Tim Hart & Friends - My Very Favourite Nursery Rhyme Record
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 25/06/2010 10:01:07
Christmas Eve 2009 sadly saw the passing of Tim Hart who will probably best be remembered as a founding member of Steeleye Span or as part of his sublime duo with Maddy Prior. In fact it is the unusual pairing of Maddys vocals along with one of Harts friends
B J Cole on pedal steel guitar on Sing A Song Of Sixpence that makes this a must buy for all completists of the folk rock genre. Casting his net outside of the Steeleye framework (Maddy, Peter Knight, Bob Johnson and Rick Kemp) other musicians involved in the project include John Kirkpatrick, Davy Spillane and Melanie Harrold. As Tim mentions in his sleeve notes these albums (originally released as two separate recordings) were basically an antidote to the numerous rubbish releases of a similar ilk foisted on a gullible public that did not know any better. Of course the seam of songs (featuring deceptively catchy melodies) such as Lavenders Blue, Oranges And Lemons and London Bridge Is Falling Down have a far darker significance if you care to dig a little into their history and unravelling these gems was always a feature of any Steeleye album at the time. John Dagnall and all at Park Records should be justifiably proud in re releasing (on double disk) what was a labour of love for its protagonist and a fitting tribute to one of the enduring legends of the folk scene.

Forget the others

Done largely by the members of an electric folk band that Tim Hart was a member of, this album treats nursery rhymes as folk songs. Bought for my daughter 30 years ago, and now again for my grandson. I'm so glad it's been re-released on CD. If you don't like folk, but want your kids to hear nursery rhymes done properly and treated professionally, this is the album for you.
I even admit to listening to this sitting in the car, in the sun, with the window open, at traffic lights, and getting strange looks because I was the only one in the car.
I can't rate this collection highly enough.

Can't recommend this highly enough. After being brought up listening to this on LP as a child it is fantastic to see it FINALLY released on CD. Grown ups will love the 'proper' music - folk/rock and the wonderful vocals of Tim Hart, Maddy Prior & co. Kids will love the huge variety of nursery rhymes, some very familiar and some more obscure. Love it.
