Dr Seuss Presents The Cat In The Hat Songbook (1967)
Oscar did well to find this – in a punk-specialist store…but often in record stores it’s worth having a look down low (easier for him to do too). Those $1 specials have provided plenty of highlights over the years, some of my all-time favourite records are scuffed a bit, with torn covers – but it’s the music that matters. I’m not sure if this will be the case, but Oscar chose it and it is – essentially – a record for him; a good one for his collection. As those wonderful Dr. Seuss books are holding his attention and fostering his imagination currently. He can repeat a few of them nearly word-for-word and he references them constantly. If he doesn’t care for this record I will keep it safe.
