Sing with Ranger Andy (1967)

Cobble Brook Records 7342
This was a thrift shop find (99¢), in mint condition and still in the shrink wrap. I picked it up because I liked the artwork on the cover. It turned out to be a well-recorded set of Ranger Andy-penned tunes as well as a nice cover of the classic "My Grandfather's Clock."

The internet reveals that Ranger Andy (Orville Andrews) had a television show on WTIC in Hartford, Connecticut from 1957-1968.

"A popular personality among Connecticut's youth, he performed for years at childrens' hospitals and produced three albums of original songs." – findagrave.com
