From the CD jacket:  The story of The Chicken Made of Rags is a family story that has traversed several generations. My grandmother Nina Serrano and her brother Philip Serrano used to hear the bedtime tale from their uncle Paul of a raggedy chicken and her motley crew of feathered friends who were invited to a feast, only to discover that they were the main course. Uncle Paul had in turn heard the story from his nanny, who had been a slave on the island of Cuba.

Nina Serrano later rewrote the tale, this time set in San Francisco, and my great uncle Phil wrote songs to accompany a stage production. In 1991, Nina’s children Greg and Valerie Landau spearheaded the production of this audio drama, with Greg producing the music. At the young age of ten I joined the cast as the Little Swan, and today I present it as a re-release of a family tale that spans generations. We hope you enjoy it!
