"PEBBLES & BAMM-BAMM" CD MAY MEAN THE RETURN OF THE FABLED HANNA-BARBERA "HBR" RECORDS!

This week, New Line Records released the 1965 children's record, Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm Singing Songs of Christmas, one of several dozen albums and singles produced by the animation studio.



These records are highly prized by collectors, not only for the recordings themselves but for the extraordinary artwork and graphics by HB's great artists, like Ron Dias, Willie Ito, Warren Tufts and many others.

This particular album is one of the few in the "cartoon series" that is totally musical. When the record label was launched, an episode of The Flinstones featured a singing Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm with the song, "Open Up Your Heart." The song was played on the end credits of several episodes to promote the single. This song is not included on this album, but was included on a Rhino CD called Modern Stone Age Melodies.

The singing voices are the same as they were on the TV show, a mother/daughter singing duo named Rickie and Rebecca Page (in the 1966 movie The Man Called Flintstone, child singers sang Pebbles & Bamm-Bamm's songs).

The new CD features a representation of the original back cover graphics, too (remember the Scully lathe and the finest Westrex cutting heads used to create the masters?) and the disc itself has the wonderful blue HBR label design.

The album is available on amazon, and apparently also in stock at Borders and Barnes & Noble.
