Barney The Bear Sings Bible Stories (Singcord ZLP 3034) 1977

 

 

Floyd Robinson scores again with another crazy kids record. This is a ‘ rare example of Floyd’s vocals being slowed down rather than raised up into chipmunk realms. Slow plodding country tunes with deep lazy aw-shucks vocals of the “which way did he go George” school and an idiotic “a-huh-a-huh-a-huh!” laugh that’ll knock you flat. Be prepared to be exposed to numerous bear puns on titles like ‘Bear With Me’, ‘There’s Bearly Enough Time’, ‘Grin And Bear It’, ‘Embearasing’, ‘The – Bear Necessities’ and ‘Unbearable’. (The Archivist, 4th Edition by Ken Scott).

I have not acquired this album yet.
