Lucy & Carly - The Simon Sisters Sing For Children was The Simon Sisters fourth, and last album, released in 1973 by Columbia Records (Columbia CR21539). It was essentially a re-release of The Simon Sisters Sing The Lobster Quadrille And Other Songs For Children and contained the same songs and track listing, but with additional recording and mixing.[1] More percussion and guitars were added to give the songs a fuller 70's sound.
