Ballads for the Age of Science

Harbinger Records is proud to release as a download (the equivalent of six CDs) Ballads for the Age of Science, one of the most successful educational recording projects of all time, made available now for the first time for over fifty years. Even today, baby boomers have fond memories of these catchy songs. The original recordings are cherished by collectors for both their beautiful covers and the nostalgic memories of their youth.

These songs introduce scientific concepts and terms using catchy, easily learned words and music. They were originally published as monophonic LPs in 1961 by Motivation Records, a division of Argosy. They were available as individual albums and as a boxed set. The set is officially titled Ballads for the Age of Science but is also known as Singing Science Records.

People have said many nice things about these songs, but perhaps the most gratifying praise is that, decades after these recordings went out of print, fans created websites and Facebook pages in their honour.
