Over the years since we released Slugs and Bugs and Lullabies, Andrew and I have received countless emails from parents and comments at shows about how much folks love the record, which tracks are their favorites and what a nice gift S&B&L makes for new parents.
What we almost never hear is… “We found the hidden track!”
The truth is, I heard about it so seldom that I had forgotten all about it till 2 years ago when my sister-in-law asked me about it on a visit to Houston. She had stumbled upon it while the boys (at the time, 6 year old twins) were in the car, and they made her play it over and over and over again, each time to a deluge of cackles from their matching car seats.
I don’t know why I haven’t posted about it till now, but now is as good a time as any, I suppose. So… if you want to hear the hidden track, put your CD into the player, and press rewind. The hidden track is just before “Stop,” (track #1). If you received the record digitally, you don’t have access to it.
As you and your kids discover the track, let us know their reactions! And if you already knew all about it, and this is old news to you, let us know how long it was before you found it! I love those stories.
