If you were stuck on an urban island and could play only one kids' record that wouldn't drive you and the children nuts with repeated plays, this would have to be it. Connie Kaldor, the great Canadian chanteuse, and the lesser known Carmen Campagne, have created one of the most exquisitely lovely records in any genre. Kaldor's "I Have You" speaks to so many soulful truths about a mother's love for a child in the face of all the world's riches and distractions that it ought to be required listening for all expecting--and current--parents. Kaldor and Campagne's "Dream Baby," adapted to Debussy's "Clair de Lune," is as grandly inspired as the rest of the record is simply beautiful, and the arrangements are stunning. Half the disc is sung in French, which--aside from sounding at times like the pop symphony of the last half of Abbey Road--adds a poetic dimension to the moving harmonies, rich colors, and joyful highs found throughout the 13 tracks. A must-have (plus you and the little ones might even learn a little French by the 130th spin). --Martin Keller

"Sell the ranch if you must, but get this cd, and all of the others by Connie Kaldor. "Small Cafe" is available in the U.S.. From Canada, you can get "Gentle of Heart", "Out of the Blue", "Wood River", "Moonlight Grocery", "Love is a Truck". She is in a league of her own."
A lullaby collection that YOU will love too..

"Soothing at any time when you or baby needs to relax. The songs are varied and complex enough to satisfy music lovers, whether they be folkies or classical music lovers. The only thing I didn't like is the sound "wah-wah" of a baby at the beginning of the first song! Who needs it ?! But the rest is pure enjoyment. Baby goes to sleep by the second or third song and I often listen to many more of the songs before tiptoeing out of the room...It is my favorite, with Linda Ronstadt's lullaby CD coming in second place."
Highly recommended for all parents searching for a creative
