Marcy, Happy Little Children, Singcord Zondervan ZLP-960, 1976. Got a few more I’ll be posting.
A lot of people are seriously freaked out by Marcy. Just do a quick web search and you’ll find some pretty nasty commentary. Most of those people are probably freaked out by Barney the dinosour and Blue’s Clues. Well, those actually freak me out.
Marcy never bothered me, but my Grandmother had a few of her albums and my Grandmother’s was always a safe place. I seem to remember I liked Marcy when I was really little, but my sister liked her a lot longer after I’d “grown up” and was listening to The Aristocats and Lady and the Tramp soundtracks. I’m not sure how I got these albums, they might be the same ones my Grandmother had.
The best site I found in my 5 minutes of research is http://users.vianet.ca/grizelda/marcy/, there was one other that had a pretty good discography, but it was so negative I won’t link to it.
A sample. Now remember, this is for kids, and I gag at most kids stuff today too.
Sorry folks, as of December 1, 2012, the photohost I've used for 15 years closed down, so most of my posts will not have pictures. I will be replacing them eventually. If there is a particular picture or post that you'd like to see, leave a comment or email me at mrpontiac at yahoo dot com and I'll get right on that post. Or you can go to my Flickr page and root around. Thanks.

About Retro Hound
Retro Hound is a place for collectors (especially me) to share vintage memorabilia that they have collected. I collect soda pop bottles; record albums (LPs and 45s, not really 78s); trading cards; magazines (especially hot rod magazines); interesting lithographic art from postcards or game boxes; that sort of thing.
I'll do some reviews of classic movies as well.
And remember, (mostly) Everything's for sale! Contact me at mrpontiac at yahoo dot com and have a clear subject line.
"What's *blank* worth?" is a question I get frequently. For the most part, I don't know. I've had this stuff for 20-30 years so I usually have to go to eBay or Craigslist to make a guess.
