Album Notes:

With this, our third album, we have put together another collection of songs, rhymes and games that we hope will please both children and their families. We are delighted by the enthusiasm that has greeted our earlier records, One Elephant, Deux Elephants and Smorgasbord, over the past two years, and we were particularly proud when Smorgasbord won the 1979 Juno Award for the Best Children's Album in Canada. Now, with Singing 'n Swinging, we continue our tradition of selecting the best music we can find and setting it in arrangements that may reflect the origins of the songs or strike our in new directions.

record, like any artistic creation, is not a thing unto itself. It exists as a link between the minds and feelings of the creators and those of the listeners. That is why we perform only music that we love ourselves, in ways which express our respect for the diverse traditions from which the songs come from, and for the intelligence and openness of our listeners,
young and old.
