While this clearly is Robert Preston and parts of the Chicken Fat I grew up with, it is only a 4 minute version, not the 10 minute version used during PE classes when it was raining to too cold for outdoors classes.

So you will get parts of what you remember, just not the entirety.

I ordered this because it came up in search as the Robert Preston version of "Chicken Fat". It is not. It is about 2-3 minutes of the introduction then it is a changed version without Robert Preston through the rest. Very disappointing to me and I wasted money on the CD.

Let's make this clear: This is NOT the 1961 recording commissioned by by the President's Council on Physical Fitness.
It also is NOT sung by Robert Preston. This is what is known in the music industry as a "cover" of the same song.
In other words, this is not the same singer and NOT the same musicians.
That is why there are so many complaints about this CD from those who heard this for the first time in grade school, back in the '60s.

This is sung by Bernie Knee, who's voice does have a striking resemblance to Robert Preston's, yet whose performance falls short of the original.
The fact that this is a totally different recording is why there are complaints about the quality of the recording and the length of time in which it plays. The only thing this has in common with the original is that it is the same words and music that Meredith Willson (Yes, two letter l's there) wrote.

This is a fairly decent cover of the song, but for those who want the real thing, Google "Chicken Fat - Robert Preston", and you can download the original for free. For those of you who prefer the song on CD, by all means order this title, but be fully aware of the differences mentioned above.

This was not the same as the original 45 record I have. I did not like this cd. I still use the record. This just sits in my cd holder. Do not recommend.

My wife and I recently saw two different stage productions of Music Man by Meridith Wilson. This made my wife eager to have the recording of Wilson's Chicken Fat, by Robert Preston, she used with her first grade classes in the sixties. We thought this was it, but it is not. This one does not have the wonderful energy of Robert Preston's original recording.

This isn't the "Chicken Fat" you remeber from grade school--it is a shortened version, but it's fun all the same! The CD does have a longer version included that is instumental only, so if you can fill in your own aerobic exercises, it works great! I love the music. It reminds me of those days back in grade school when we would all line up across the room and work out to "Go you chicken fat, go away--go you chicken fat, go!"

This is a nice souding, well-done version of the Baby-Boomer era original version. It lacks the energy and charm of the original, which was done by one and only Robert Preston. Don't be fooled by seeing composer Meridith Wilson's name on the label.It is the same song; however, it is not sung by the singer of the well-known and best loved classic by Robert Preston. Not worth the money, if you ask me. Buy the orginal track.

This is not the same recording that was popular in the 1960's and played in every gymnasium in the country. I was very disappointed that it was an abbreviated version of the exercise routine that I remember doing in grade school.
