CD Reviews

About as odd as I could have imagined...
John W. Gastil | Seattle, WA USA | 08/10/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"We bought this CD and played it at our wedding, and it satisfied our guests. We wanted the Chicken Dance, and we got it. The CD gets 3 stars--instead of only 2--because it delivers on that simple promise.

But the organ music was too subdued for this song. It's like Herbie Hancock on Prozac, or a whimsical church organist drinking coffee. The Chicken Dance is better performed by a hyped-up polka band, so this version may disappoint. Also, this CD has both an instrumental and vocal version of the Chicken Dance. The vocal version is disorienting and unnecessary. If you must listen to the vocal version, do so in private; do not subject dancers to it."
Chicken dance for fun groups

"I have seen and performed the chicken dance at two weddings and had a great time. I was specifically looking for this song and was delighted to find it and only it. The music is great. Now all I need are the instructions on how to do it for a party."
Chicken Dance Causes Riot at Chicken Dinner Festival
S. L. Winant | 08/24/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As a member of a church's chicken dinner festival committee, I thought the patrons and workers alike (all volunteers)would enjoy hearing the Chicken Dance as they were eating/working. I didn't have a copy of this caliber yet, but even the one we had was a hit! I can hardly wait to play this single CD next year, with its alternating vocal and instrumental versions. At one time during the festivities in the dining room, our priest, music director, kids who helped clear and reset tables, and the folks who manned the serving line all danced. What fun!"
