Jim Copp: an overlooked master in the art of sound recording during the era of magnetic tape.
In the field of postwar children’s records, Copp was Les Paul, Phil Spector, Brian Wilson, and Lee Perry rolled into one.
Copp wrote, performed, engineered and produced a series of children’s records throughout the 1950s and ‘60s.
Recorded in his home with only the help of partner Ed Brown, Copp used overdubbing to create an unforgettable cast of characters, comic scenes, and vignettes.




Jim Copp made his first children’s record in 1952
He approached Capitol Records with a pitch for a project called “The Noisy Eater.”
Capitol liked the idea but wanted Jerry Lewis to record it instead of Copp. Copp got writing credits on the record, which was performed by Lewis and produced by Alan Livingston, the Capitol executive behind their hugely successful Bozo records.



On the surface, the “The Noisy Eater” is similar to many other “manners” records being released at the time, but there are some notable differences. First, there is a certain dark, Edward Gorey-esque humor to the depiction of parental authority: notice how his parents kick him out of the house for his bad table manners.

What is more, the record comes close to overturning its own pedagogical motives by lingering for so long on the wonderfully repulsive sounds of Lewis’ noisy eating.
In that way, the record is the sonic equivalent of cheap, garishly colorful candies like “Space Dust” and “gross-out” toys that are the antithesis of adult conceptions of healthy or quality kids’ culture, and are indeed enjoyed by children precisely because they disgust their parents.

Finally, we should note the quirky musical number and the unexpectedly clever way in which the record ends. All of these distinctive qualities would become even more pronounced when Copp began making his own records.
