Pigtails (Crest Records ‎– JBP7902) 1975 Australia *

This album is not found yet in The Archivist. It is Franciscus’ second childrens’ album. A couple of the songs brought back memories of earlier days. “Randolph The Rat” reminded me of my home town of Randolph. While “Ding-Dong! The Witch Is Dead!” reminded me of the Wizard of Oz movie. The “Roll A Bowl” reminded me of an old race track for automobiles near Jamestown, NY which was called The Roll-A-Bowl, The track had a creek running across it and there was a spot on one side where the drivers would try to roll their cars over, where the track got its name. Pigtails as reissued on CD’s in 1990 and 1992. “What Can You Do?” the title which made me think about the question it asked. I can do nothing by my self. We are nothing without God. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. (John 15:5).     diakoneo
