Burl Ives Sings... for Fun (1956)

I don't think there's anybody who doesn't know who Burl Ives was. Probably everybody knows him as the snowman who narrates the story on the Christmas special "Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer". Some may remember him from some Disney movies and also as "Big Daddy". Mostly, he's remembered for being a folk singer with a nice, melodic, mellow, soothing voice. I know I enjoy listening to his songs, and this is one of several Burl Ives albums that I have. I usually try to get albums in stereo if there was both a mono or stereo version, but, as far as I know, this album was released only in mono. Anyway, I hope you enjoy it!
