Real music for kids
Don Menzies | San Angelo, TX United States | 03/07/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This collection of original blues songs by Bob "Catfish" Hodge, Ira Ingber and Martin Kibbee goes beyond the traditional fare thrown together for a children's album. This CD doesn't offer the usual remakes of the same old tired favorites. The songwriters include an array of positive themes like community, helping one another, and working together for the common good, but these themes do not stand alone as a silly attempt to moralize to small children, they are incorporated seemlessly into the fabric of each song. The CD celebrates music and even contains an especially beautiful song paying hommage to the musical style known as bluegrass. The quality of both the music and the lyrics on this CD are rare in a children's recording. I am a 26 year old blues guitarist and what I look for in CDs for my 6 year old son are CDs that I enjoy listening to as well. It's important for parents and children to share the experience of music. CDs like "Catfish Pond" make this possible."
Too much talk

"I was dissapointed in the cd. There was too much talk and not enough music. I didn't want a history of Cajin.
Real kid's music

"I'll be honest. My daughter listened to this CD so many times when I first got it for her that we sort of burned out on it---in a good way. We set it aside for about a year, then she rediscovered the fun in "The Adventures at Catfish Pond." This CD features interlaced collections of narration and music that depict what happens when members of the pond community have to act for the good of all. One good thing that sets this CD apart from other children's music is that "save the planet" or "love everybody" themes are not foisted on the kids---or grownups who might be driving on a long trip and not in the mood for such PC nonsense. But what will keep them listening is the music: there are no singsong anthems, no recycled little red cabooses, and no saccharin-laced vocals. The music has real substance, and it will leave you satisfied sort of the way a meal of hush puppies, fish, slaw, and iced tea does."
