Little Marcy ‎– "Sings Nursery Rhymes" (Word ‎– K-702) 1967

There are people out there who think this strange detour into creepy religious cults doesn't fit the remit of this blog. Wrong, none of this shite would have ever seen the light of day,even though its makers had patently 'Seen the Light', unless these crazed simpletons had put it all out themselves, on their own labels, and making their own genre. Christians were doing it themselves well before us normal people discovered the way out of corporate slavery.
There are also people who seemed desperate to hear Little Marcy's version of old English Nursery Rhyme, "I Love Little Pussy".Renamed in the late 20th century as "I Love Little Kitty".
So, here it is, as part of the only Little Marcy album that doesn't bang on about Jesus for the duration.
Many of these nursery rhyme have decidedly iffy subject matter, and rather Pagan themes as their origin. And yes, the Pussy referred to in Marcy's most seeked out tune, does indeed,possibly, cryptically refer to a ladies naughty bits in the oldest version of the tune from 1830,by some obscure wordsmith called Jane taylor (1783-1824)

I like the way she's working animals into the holy mix. Halle-frickin'-lujah. If there were such a thing as a born again mosh pit, I'd want Marcy and her kitty on stage, a guess.

of course what makes this so attractive is that you have so many of these albums.
and topping off little Marcy with big Marcy is the creme de la cremate.
and thank you for the colourful commentary, I've been chuckling uncontrollably for an hour...
