late 70s recording of maggie and milly and molly and may
December 24, 2012 11:18 PM   Subscribe

Looking for a children's musical tape from the 70s or 80s that had a song of the e.e. cummings poem "maggie and milly and molly and may". It was probably a man singing, possibly with some children in a chorus.

My mother is insistent that we have to find a copy of this cassette tape from the 70s or very early 80s that had the poem "maggie and milly and molly and may" set to song. I don't think it's going to happen, but she's sweet enough that I have to give it my all for her. (Also, she won't stop until I do.)

She thinks it was a man singing, I think there was some sort of children's chorus. It may have been a local production from Humboldt County, possibly from Music for Little People, but really, it could have been from anywhere. She thinks it may have had Wynken, Blynken and Nod on the same tape, but that's iffy. It definitely predates the Natalie Merchant Recording and all of the other recordings that are listed on Amazon. Thanks in advance for any help.

Let the speculation begin!

Perhaps Mathilde Santing, from 1985's "Water Under the Bridge"?

The absolute latest this could have been recorded -- based on where we lived when we had it was 1982 or 1983. But if I can't find the original one, that might be worth checking out to satisfy her itch. Thanks!
