I first fell in love with Fisher Price’s Little People when I had my first son. They were the only toys he wanted to play with all the time when he was a little guy. He could pick them up easily. He would zoom around our living room with his characters in a Little People truck, it was just the cutest thing.
Darby O'Gill seems to be as full of blarney as any old codger in Ireland, but the stories of leprechauns he tells at the pub are true. In fact, he and the tiny King Brian, ruler of the little people, are friendly adversaries, continually out-foxing each other. Darby needs a bit of magical help from the wily king when Lord Fitzpatrick replaces him as caretaker with the handsome, strapping young Michael from Dublin. Michael falls in love with Darby's beautiful daughter, Katie, which is all right with Darby; but the lad has a rival in a local ruffian, the son of a devious widow who wants her boy to be the caretaker. King Brian's supernatural assistance is necessary to make everything come out all right, but the sneaky leprechaun won't play matchmaker without a fight. Finally, real trouble comes in the form of the Banshee, and Darby will need all his quick wits to save his daughter from the wicked spirit. Written by
As I’m expecting our 5th baby, I’m so excited to bring the Little People back into our home. My youngest is almost 5 years old now, so it’s been a little while since we’ve had Little People here, and I can’t wait to have them back!
The album also contains a few original productions by myself. At the time of writing WABHOW, i spent a lot of time trying different ideas and taking tracks in different directions. All this experimentation generated lots of spare ideas, sketches and recordings. Many of these never made it onto the finished album. Not necessarily because they were uninteresting, but maybe because i felt they didn't quite fit the project at the time. So rather than confine them to an archive on a hard drive, i thought i should spruce them up a little as little skits - or offcuts - in between the actual remixes. In that way this remix project retains a little more of the Little People DNA.
