Chickens Sing the Blues

We people sing about chickens more than I would have thought possible.  Old Hat Records has released a CD entitled "Cluck Old Hen" that features 24 vintage songs about chickens, chicks, pullets, roosters and other poultry. 

These songs were originally recorded from 1926 through 1940 and cover a range of styles including folk, blues and Tin Pan Alley. (early Broadway)

To listen to clips of these songs, visit the Old Hat Records web site.

You can buy the CD from Amazon for $15.99.  That's alot of cluck for very little buck.
