1994 Kenny Loggins – Return To Pooh Corner

Return to Pooh Corner is the eighth studio album by American soft rock singer Kenny Loggins. The title is a reference to A.A. Milne’s 1928 book The House at Pooh Corner. Released in 1994, it features songs written by John Lennon, Rickie Lee Jones, Paul Simon and Jimmy Webb, along with several other traditional children’s songs. The songs are described as “music for parents and children to enjoy together”. It was a successful album for Loggins, selling over 500,000 copies, and was nominated for a Grammy. Guest appearances are made by David Crosby and Graham Nash on “All the Pretty Little Ponies”, Patti Austin on the “Neverland Medley” and Amy Grant and Gary Chapman on the title track (a rewritten version of “House at Pooh Corner”, a song Loggins wrote in high school and had previously recorded with Jim Messina for their 1971 album Sittin’ In). Loggins returned to Pooh Corner several years later with 2000’s More Songs from Pooh Corner.
