Tom Glazer and Dottie Evans

Stumbled upon this great site recently. This guy has painstakingly digitized his collection of Singing Science records from when he was a kid. These things are awesome. My favourites are below, but I recommend getting them all.
Tom Glazer and Dottie Evans - Friction.mp3
Tom Glazer and Dottie Evans - Planet Minuet.mp3
Tom Glazer and Dottie Evans - Constellation Jig.mp3
Tom Glazer and Dottie Evans - What is a Shooting Star.mp3

Just found this record at a little catholic thrift store in the middle of nowhere Ohio...hard to find much information about it. So far as I can tell, it seems to be aimed at the american educator under pressure to compete with soviet education.
It certainly is a charming record, and the female vocals in particular remind me of Mary Mayo of "Dick Hyman and Mary Mayo: Moon Gas" fame.
Theres also something about it that reminds me of the lady Bruce Haack worked with so much.
