The first ever vinyl reissue of an extraordinarily-unique space-age educational LP. Includes the oft-covered ?A Shooting Star Is Not A Star? and ?Why Does The Sun Shine?? Featuring Leo Leonni cover art and taken from the original atomic-era 1959 master tapes. Written by Hy Zaret and sung by Tom Glazer & Dottie Evans. Zaret (co-author of ?Unchained Melody?) turned his attention to educational children?s music in the late 1950s, collaborating with Lou Singer on a six-album series called ?Ballads for the Age of Science.? Space Songs stands alone as the most essential volume in a series that also featured songs about energy and motion, experiments, weather, and nature. Space Songs contains ?Why Does the Sun Shine" (aka ?The Sun Is a Mass of Incandescent Gas?) and ?A Shooting Star Is Not a Star? which were more recently popularized by They Might Be Giants.
