When We Were Very Young - Camarata & A. A. Milne

Here's one to slow things down. It's calming and friendly. Nice poems by A.A. Milne put to music by Camarata. If you have little ones, they might like this one.

Hello. I would love to hear this. I had the record as a kid, way back when. But when I download and unzip, none of my media players recognize the file extension, and so can't play it. What media player can I use to listen to these songs?

Itunes will play these files. You can download itunes free from

The files have been ripped in the aac format which is the itunes format. The quality is far better than mp3.

You have made my year (so far). I had a cassette copy of this that was unplayable. I can't believe that you posted this. Thanks you ever so much.

I can't thank you enough! My old vinyl is long past being usable. This is wonderful.


Spencer said...

You're very welcome. Enjoy!

Wow, this is what I had as a kid! I'm so glad to have found it again! Thanks so much for putting it up here.

One question, though. I remember there being more songs. I have distinct memories of the song version of "Buckingham Palace" specifically. Do you know if there was a second volume or anything, or am I just imagining things?

Spencer said...

Sorry, I don't know of any other versions or volumes. I'm not saying there isn't one, I just haven't done the research to know if there is or isn't. Good luck on your quest.

Thank you sooo much for posting these. I sang them as a young child with my aunt. She has been looking for them, as she now has 5 grandchildren she wants to share them with. You have done a great thing. This will make her day, as she just had a hip replacement. Also, one of the grandchildren has leukemia and will be having a bone marrow transplant next month. Music like this is great for a little one who is (and will be) largely confined to a hospital bed. Thank you!

Spencer said...

Glad to be of service.

I love this album. Thank you so much for posting it. My Mom used to play it for me when I was small and I loved it then, the song "sand between our toes" was a favorite. My Mom passed away this year and these songs touch my heart with lovely memories of her.
