Another found today in the same box as the Zillertaler Trio. Burl Ive's childrens songs were regularly played on the BBC's "Childrens Favourites" radio show of the 50's and 60's especially songs like There was An Old Lady and Blue Tail Fly etc. This MFP LP was released in the 70's I would imagine. No date on the sleeve.
Here's what Wikipedia has to say about him-
"Burl Icle Ivanhoe Ives (14 June 1909 – 14 April 1995) was an acclaimed American folk music singer, author and actor. Born near Hunt City in Jasper County, Illinois, Ives is probably best remembered for his music. He dropped out of college to travel about as an itinerant singer during the early 1930s, earning his way by doing odd jobs and playing his banjo. He was jailed in Mona, Utah, for singing “Foggy Foggy Dew”, which the authorities decided was a bawdy song. Ives from 1927 to 1929 attended Eastern Illinois State Teachers College in Charleston (now Eastern Illinois University), where he played football. During college he was a member of the Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity. He dropped out of college because of poor grades and in 1930 landed on WBOW radio in Terre Haute, Indiana. In 1940 Ives began his own radio show, titled The Wayfaring Stranger after one of his popular ballads. The show was very popular, and in 1946 Ives was cast as a singing cowboy in the film Smoky. His first book, The Wayfaring Stranger, was published in 1948. Other movie credits include East of Eden (1955); Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1958); The Big Country (1958), for which he won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor; and Our Man in Havana (1959), based on the Graham Greene novel. In the 1940s Ives popularized several traditional folk songs, such as “Lavender Blue” (his first hit, a folk song from the 17th century), “Foggy Foggy Dew” (an English/Irish folk song), “Blue Tail Fly” (an old Civil War tune) and “Big Rock Candy Mountain” (an old hobo ditty)."
