The Little Golden Records 45s were an audio offshoot of the New York publishing house Simon & Shuster, produced under the direction of the legendary Arthur Shimkin starting in 1948 all the way to 1962. Little Golden was the very first label to be devoted to children's music and Shimkin took advantage of the prestigious Simon & Shuster imprint to lure the best talent to his innovative project, including Jimmy Durante, Danny Kaye, puppeteer Shari Lewis, and many others. The equally innovative Micro Werks label has collected the best of the Little Golden line in two volumes, much to the delight of rapidly aging baby boomers who sang along with "On Top Of Spagetti" and "Tubby The Tuba" as tots and would surely treasure these rare artifacts of Eisenhower-era Americana.
