The Greatest Easter Album of All Time

Weirdly enough, this is not about classical liturgical music, much as I love it. (In fact, if you would like to receive a special Good Friday playlist tomorrow of nothing but various Stabat Mater settings through the ages, go sign up for Band level or above on my Patreon. I sure know how to market myself with popular things the people absolutely want, huh?) Anyway. The actual greatest Easter album of all time is Peter Cottontail from Peter Pan Records. As best as I can glean from The Internet, this children's record originally came out in the sixties and was reprinted in the seventies, and my parents somehow found it in the early eighties, and I was OBSESSED. Unfortunately, so far as I can tell, it never made it to CD nor digital/streaming. (It is none of the albums entitled Peter Cottontail on Spotify. Trust me; I have checked.)

However! Some HERO has uploaded the songs to YouTube and made a playlist. PLEASE ENJOY. This should start at the beginning but I'm not positive if it will play through the playlist. (If not, click the link.)

And allow me to also suggest one of my favorites, "Betty Bunny's Birthday Day," which, as the title suggests, is not actually an Easter song at all:

Welcome to the earworm my parents and I have had for over thirty years.
