Shortly after I posted my blog post on ‘Dandelions’ I began corresponding with Tres and Kitsy via e-mail

01 Dandelions 02 The College School 03 Tuffy 04 War 05 They call it love 06 The children of sunshine 07 Uncle Harry 08 If you are lonely 09 Talking 10 It's a long way to heaven 11 Harmony 12 Talking -. - INFO: Tres Williams and Kitsy Christner were both 10. years old when they recorded the album ‘Dandelions’. Encouraged by their guitar teacher, Tres and Kitsy wrote, arranged and recorded 10 songs. They used a picture from their school photography project for the cover, enlisted local musicians to help out and privately pressed 300 copies to sell to friends and family.

The album featured in this photo, Dandelions, was recorded in 1970 by 'The Children of Sunshine', 10 year old 5th grade girls Tres (Therese) Williams and Kitsy Christner, grade-school friends in St. Louis, Missouri. They wrote all the songs themselves, both played guitar and sang all vocals. They hired two college students to play acoustic bass (Wendy Katz) and drum kit (Mike Kieffer).

Kitsy Christner and Therese Williams recorded a novelty album as ten-year-olds. Forty years later, Dandelions is an Internet sensation. One typical 1970 afternoon, Therese Williams, nicknamed "Tres," and her best friend Kitsy Christner gathered for their usual after-school guitar lesson. The two Webster Groves fifth-graders were in a silly mood. While waiting for their guitar teacher, Jim Curran, they discussed a Christmas party that Kitsy's parents were planning. Tres wasn't yet sure if she could stay over that weekend

Tres & Kitsy has been played on NTS in shows including High Noon w/ Dina J, featured first on 31 August 2018. Songs played include The Children Of Sunshine. Original source Last.

Possibly THE BEST antidepressant ever created. Seriously. If you ever feel like you're at the absolute end of your rope and that the sheer weight and relentless misery of existence has become unbearable, just stop, take a deep breath in... and out... and then listen to this record. On YouTube, MP3, vinyl (if you're lucky), whatever... Just let these 2 girls sing into your ears and feel a lifetime of negativity and cynicism melt away, like a nice warm bath for your soul. With bubbles! There IS pure, unjaded beauty in this world and Dandelions is a prime example. True story.
