Gary Gassell and Pam Tims: School’s Out – Let’s Shout
Ba Ba Ba “B”
From School Days (Melody House, 197?)
Let’s just get this out of the wayâ€¦this is not one of “those” Melody House LPs, i.e. chock full of funky breaks and loops. That said, I almost never pass up a MH title simply because their approach to kids’ music was so deeply informed by pop conventions in a way that seems “very ’70s” and as a ’70s baby myself, I feel a kinship of sorts. You hear especially on the “B” song which has a real Happy Days vibe, i.e. a ’70s nostalgic interpretation of ’50s rock n’ roll.
And besides, as an educator and parent of a elementary school child, I can relate to “Schools’ Out – Let’s Shout”, believe that!
