Delightful score, reminiscent of old cartoon backgrounds
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Robert Kapilow's musical score is a combination of the music, the pace, and the marvelous humor of old cartoon music. The music goes from tongue-in-cheek "opera" to funky blues at the speed of light. Included are brief peeks of many of the tunes we used to sing as children for fun or to playfully tease other children. Flashing by are unexpected bits of the tunes we awkwardly pecked out on the piano such as "Heart and Soul" or "I've Been Workin' on the Railroad". Wonderful, delightfully funny writing, and at the same time, an introduction for children to excellent music from the creative mind of a very talented musician."
I played Sam when performed with the Arkansas Symphony

"From the experience of singing with a soprano who had done this piece with Mr. Kapilow, I guess I really understood the piece. Though I am young, I think this is one of the better pieces of the 20th century. It is worth a buy. I know that I listen to it every night."
This is wonderfully modern music

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Maybe not for kids, but then again, kids should definitely be exposed to it! Musically speaking, given the discordant and tone-row sort of structure of this music, it's really very good. Not as difficult to listen to as, say, some of Schoenberg's output. And with the text added on top of the music, sung by the soprano, is just wonderful. More like Crumb, perhaps one could say, than Schoenberg. I was completely entranced, and snatched it up.You and Hugh is also quite good, but the true gem here is "Green Eggs and Ham". As another reviewer said, one of the best and more approachable (though I do not mean it's lazy, sophomoric, or not as intelligent) of the tone-row type of music with all sorts of spaces and rests in it. I love it, and I've turned some other friends onto it."
