AllMusic Review by

Out of print since their brief reappearance in the 1960s, the stories of Little Orley, as told by Lumpy Brannum (later known as Mr. Greenjeans), are finally back, and in CD form. Until toy company Uncle Goose ventured into the record industry to reissue Little Orley Stories and More Little Orley Stories in late 2000, these classic children's recordings of a popular, but relatively short-lived radio segment in the late '40s and early '50s were impossible to find, although fondly remembered by those who grew up with them. Happily, Little Orley and the Bull Fiddle, his barnyard Glee Club, and many other friends and characters are back with their good-hearted adventures. Entertaining for kids and adults, Uncle Lumpy's stories include music and sound effects by Fred Waring and His Pennsylvanians. [Available at www.littleorley.com]
