  • Mood:


My sister will be giving birth to my first nephew sometime soon, so I have this master plan where I'll record various relatives and family friends singing children's songs and I'll make a CD for my sister and her husband. My plan is to have it all done by the end of November in the hopes that that will give me time to get organized and get it all wrapped up in time for Christmas. (The recording of me singing 'Home On The Range' was by way of preparation for this -- my mother and I plan to record that song together for the CD.)

This leaves the question of what I myself should record. A week or so ago I recalled a song from one of my Mississippi John Hurt live CDs where he sings a little song called 'Chicken'. Perfect!

Tonight I sat down and recorded guitar, vocal and washboard parts. I may ditch the washboard part or rerecord it. Also, I bought a kazoo today and it might be nice to incorporate that. But anyway, I thought some of y'all might like to hear this (I'm looking at you, chicken_cem), so here it is.
