There are some things you might like to know about this record, and about us. We are all friends, we are all musicians, and we've been singing with children around Ontario for what we figure is a combined total of over forty years.

e met with our friend, Bill Usher, one fine morning last January, and decided to make a record. We all had ideas about what we wanted it to be: it would be a record of the children's songs, games and chants we had collected and treasured over the years. It would present them in arrangements both original and traditional. It would feature children of all ages singing alone and with us. It would contain material uniquely Canadian. It would offer, as an added dimension, words and music in booklet form. It would be a children's record prepared with care for a discerning audience. It would entertain and inform. It would be a record for children  of all ages, to be enjoyed by the whole family.

ill, as producer, took these ideas and shaped them all into sounds more wonderful than any of us had imagined. The French word for producer is realizateur; Bill has indeed been the "realizer" of all these musical ideas.

One Elephant, Deux Elephants is the fruit of our collaboration. we made it with friends and with affection, and we made it for you. Ecoutez bien!

- Sharon, Lois & Bram (July 1978)
