"What has always impressed me about the recordings of James and Mayor is their unnerving instrumental ability and ingenious, especially on their children's recordings, witty and hypnotic stories that they put to music.
The calibre of the tunes and songs drops not one iota throughout this compilation of their 'Musical Mystery Tour' albums, in fact their technique is so excellent that listening is an absolute delight for audiences of all ages.
Children will love to sing along and you'll love to listen along and tap your feet to the irresistable sounds here.The twenty four tracks range from very short comedy sketches to on average three minute, skilful numbers that well display their versatility on double bass, guitar, violin, various members of the mandolin family, banjo, tin whistle, harmonica, ukele and xylophone and the lovely voice of Hilary James puts the icing on the cake.
A delightful collection that's guaranteed to please."
