Playhour Records Collection

These songs come from a series of 45's from the Playhour children's record label. I don't know the date on them, but the early 70's would be a pretty good guess.

The records are very scratchy, and a couple of them are also hissy. The songs have been filtered so that the quality would be as tolerable as possible with these records.

The records deal with different categories, such as "Neighborhood / House Record", "Clothing Record", and just wait till you get to the "Social Development Record"! They consist of a cacophony of different musical styles, from standard "kiddie" fare to country to "groovy" 60's rock.
