Cuddlebug Lobster Quadrille Sing for Children

The Simon Sisters Sing The Lobster Quadrille And Other Songs For Children was The Simon Sisters' third album and their first for Columbia Records, released in 1969. The album consists of musical settings of classic children's poetry, and originally came packaged with a hard-cover illustrated book containing all the poems.

The album was reissued in 1973 to capitalize on Carly Simon's success as a solo artist, under the title "The Simon Sisters Sing for Children". For this edition, additional instrumentation was added to the original album to give it a more pop-oriented sound.[1]

In 2008, Shout! Factory released the album on CD, under the title Carly & Lucy Simon Sing Songs For Children.[2] Although the disc's packaging uses the illustration from the album's original cover, the CD contains the 1973 version of the album.
