From the back cover: Hope School opened its doors in September, 1969 to serve the trainable mentally retarded of the Anaheim Union High School District, Anaheim, California.
The Hi Hopes recordings have to be among my favorites. Whenever I feel grumpy or blue... I just listen to the Hi Hopes and presto, suddenly the sun is shinning on my sad little world and I'm feeling less crappy! Thank you Hi Hopes! Besides couldn't we all learn a lesson from The Label song?
A photo autographed by "Lori" came with this LP as well as the 45 shown above. I believe the full audio file of the album can be found elsewhere online, so I'll just post a favorite track, written by the Hi Hopes Music Teacher, Doris Day. As a treat I'll post the entire 45.
