"I approached this CD with trepidation. How could any artist measure up to Danny Kaye's bravura performance of "Mommy, Gimme a Drinka Water"? Well, Didi Conn breathes fresh air - and a *girl's* voice! - into each and every one of these delightful songs.Didi, thank you!"
No one can ever replace Danny Kaye with this material...

"I had the opportunity to listen to Didi's versions of these wonderful songs and unfortunately it fails to capture the energy, emotion and vision of Danny Kaye's original recordings. I was lucky enough to discover that a friend of mine had a cassette of the Original LP (with all the pops and clicks) and so I decided to remastered the cassette and put it onto a CD. It brings back such incredible memories and sounds really great. Hopefully someone will one day re-release the original classic on CD. No fault to Did. I guess if you haven't experienced the original versions done by Danny Kay... it's OK, but Kaye's shoes are some "big ones" to fill. :o ) 3 stars for effort."
A hidden gem!

"This CD is great. It was a clever idea to remake the Danny Kaye songs, and Didi executes the task fabulously. One Amazon reviewer felt that Didi's versions don't live up to Kaye's originals. My reaction is quite different. While I too fondly remember listening to Kaye's album when a child, Didi brings all the energy and charm to the songs that we find in the originals. Just click on one of the audio samples and hear her dynamism for yourself. Whether or not you're familiar with Kaye's original recording (currently not on CD), you and your kids should enjoy this quite a lot."
