CD Reviews

Great Family Memories
(5 out of 5 stars)

"My mother played this LP for us when we were children. We listened over and over. When I had my children, my brother bought the CD for them--and I was thrilled. Although primarily a children's record, some of the nuances of the songs can only be appreciated by adults. This album remains fresh and enjoyable to all regardless of age and number of times it is replayed.For years we didn't know that Grace Darling really existed. She is memorialized in a cemetary in Northern England."
A beautiful trip down Memory Lane...

"My parents bought the original LP for my siblings and me back in the early 1960s, and of course we played it until it wore out.

I still have that LP (though from hundreds of times on the turntable the scratches make it look as if it was used as a toboggan). This album MADE our childhood. I looked in vain for many, many years until I found it on CD in 1996.

Upon listening to it for the first time in almost thirty years, it brought tears of joy to my eyes. All those familiar, warm, and utterly innocent songs of childhood sounded as fresh and wonderful as they did the first time. Buy copies for all the kids--and adults!!--in your life. You won't regret it.

If only music for kids were so wonderful today! This album is on my all-time TOP-TEN list--of ANY genre or artist. Simply superlative!!!"

"My Dad bought this album when I was in grade school (early 1970's) and my brother and I would listen to it constantly. He recently sent me the CD, and I was thrilled to have it again. The music has withstood the test of time, and My children are enjoying it, too. The children's vocals on this album are a musical inspiration to my own kids, and are a wonderful complement to the three distinctive voices of Lou, Alex and Glenn. We love the stories told in classic folk songs such as "The Ballad of Grace Darling" and "The Whaling Song". The last song is a moving arrangement of "America The Beautiful" and "This Land is Your Land" in which Glenn's "America The Beautiful" Beautifully weaves around the children's "This Land is Your Land." This song alone makes the album a "must have". I highly recommend this album to all parents!"
