Opie collection of children's games and songs
Kirkby Malzeard, Yorkshire, England
Opie, Iona (speaker, female)
Part 1 of 2. [00:00:00 - 00:08:00]. This recording, made at K.M. Infants and Junior School in Kirkby Malzeard, Yorkshire, 1974, is a short recording that contains six skipping songs. One of these songs, however, is largely inaudible due to the poor sound quality of the recording [00:00:57 - 00:01:33] . The children sing: 'I'm a Little Bumper Car' [00:00:00 - 00:00:53]; 'Cinderella Dressed in Yellow' [00:02:05 - 00:03:08]; 'Salt, Vinegar, Mustard, Pepper' [00:03:26 - 00:04:43]; 'High, Low, Dolly, Pepper' [00:03:26 - 00:04:32] and 'Jelly on a Plate' [00:06:30 - 00:08:00].
Item notes: Recording of children demonstrating songs and discussing playground games with Iona Opie. Speakers' notes: Group of Kirkby Malzeard schoolchildren. Recording notes: Poor quality throughout.
