Sing Again With the Chipmunks is a straight CD reissue of The Chipmunk's 1961 sophomore album. "Alvin's Orchestra" is the only hit to be found, although the "group" recreates "Witch Doctor," a #1 hit in 1958 for creator David Seville (AKA Ross Bagdasarian). The program leans heavily on traditional songs such as "Coming 'Round the Mountain," "Home On the Range," "Row Your Boat," etc, which are used as springboards for skits in which the ornery Chipmunks defy Seville's authority and provoke him to yell "ALVIN!" The tape manipulation gimmick that made The Chipmunks so novel in their day is less fascinating today than it was in the late '50s, and the humor is extremely formulaic, which makes Sing Again With the Chipmunks a harmlessly fun and nostalgic artifact but not much more. © Greg Adams /TiVo

The Chipmunks were the product of record producer Ross Bagdasarian, and was one of the most inventive novelty projects of it's time. Of course, it's for children of all ages. The slightly dry narration of Dave Seville (Ross's alter ego?) coupled with the 'Monks speeded-up voices created excellent kids comedy. On this album, they are taking a trip around the world, seeing cultures and singing songs from various countries. It was actually educational as well as entertaining. And what fun. Oh yeah, some of those original albums with the mirror-paper covers (in good condition) fetch a pretty penny in collectors marketplaces. © Matthew Greenwald /TiVo
