FRANCIS HOUSE DAY NURSERY
Francis House Day Nursery of Paddington, who were responsible for one record - they are credited on the labels and their address can just about be seen, rubber stamped, on the sleeve. The nursery's only release was an EP of very short songs for children, written by Winifred Williams and sung by Barry Alexander, who wrote most of the music for them; I assume that Barry also provided the accompaniment, which consists of a sole acoustic guitar. It's actually rather appealing in a simple 'Now We Are Six' kind of way. The catalogue number, CP-2599, indicates a Decca custom pressing (see the Decca Custom Pressing page). There's no year on the label but happily there was one on CPX-2606: it was 1972, which means that we can date this to 1971-72 with a degree of confidence. The scan has been doctored to replace a missing centre. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
