SCOUTING ALONG WITH BURL IVES $14.99
Scouting Along With Burl Ives is a curious little album he made for Columbia while under contract to Decca Records in the early ’60s. Subtitled “The Official Boy Scouts Album,” it features Ives and a chorus of young boys singing songs about fishing, camping, honor, and the Boy Scouts of America. The recordings are fully orchestrated by Sid Bass with harpsichord, drums, banjo, piano, and other instruments, and the boys are a practiced choir — not a bunch of amateur kids belting it out. The German roots of the Boy Scouts are made explicit on “I Points to Mineself,” which is sung partly in German and partly in German-accented English. The gang rips through “Clementine,” and “She’ll Be Comin’ ‘Round the Mountain” in high spirits before concluding in quasi-military fashion with a solemn vocal rendition of “Taps.” Scouting Along With Burl Ives is essentially a work-for-hire children’s album made for the Boy Scouts and is therefore of limited appeal, but the professionalism and enthusiasm Ives and Bass exhibit are admirable.

Dagenham Girl Pipers
S O L D
The Dagenham Girl Pipers are a female bagpipe marching band based in Dagenham, London, UK. The band was formed in by a Congregational minister, Rev Joseph Waddington Graves, in 1930, turning professional three years later, and have toured internationally. The girls were initially taught in secret by Scottish Pipe Major Douglas Scott-Taylor who, it is said, thought teaching women would damage his reputation. The pipers were also known for having the first female, and first non-Scot pipe major who came from their own ranks, when Sgt Edith Turnbull –the first member of the band — was made a Pipe Major in the band. During a pre-war performance in Germany, Hitler was heard to remark: “I wish I had a band like that.” During World War II, the pipers were members of ENSA (Entertainments National Service Association) and entertained the troops.
