    "Silly tall tales"

    Tall, very tall, tales that kids and old men will enjoy. Fishing, hunting and dog nonsense stories to laugh and/or roll your eyes at.

    "The best Joe Hayes album available"

    I grew up listening to Joe Hayes' stories, and this album contains my very favorites. "My Pet Rattlesnake", "A Tall Christmas Tale", "Fur Bearing Fish", the list goes on. These make great bedtime stories for kids from about 5 to about 12. Joe's voice is almost as good as his stories.
