King of Togo Togo and Other Stories
I remember checking out a vinyl record of this recording from the public library when I was a kid. I went looking for it again for my son, and brought it back out recently for the little 2yo girl I babysit. She would have it on non-stop if I would let her. She loves it, asks for it first thing every day, and knows the stories well enough to relear them right along with the recording. And the stories themselves are deep enough, I could base a scholarly essay on them. They are captivating for all ages and a priceless addition to any listening library.
i've been looking for an MP3 version of this song for ages.
Good quality recording. Easy download.
