Inspired by 1992's 'Til Their Eyes Shine: The Lullaby Album, an all-female collection of sleepy-time songs for children, Daddies Sing Good Night proves that men are no less tender in nurturing their wee ones. Or at least that's true of these men--including Jesse Winchester, Doc Watson, Peter Rowan, and the late Townes Van Zandt--who wrote the songs for their own offspring, and, in their day jobs, rank among the finest practitioners of folk, country, and bluegrass. In guiding their young charges to dreamworld, these fathers visit exotic lands, lonesome prairies, and even the wide heavens on the gossamer wings of horses. Parental listeners will likely detour into the recesses of their own hearts, in exploring the special bond and soothing strength of fatherhood. --Alanna Nash

This is a wonderful series of goodnight songs, with a lullaby quality, by several artists. It would make a lovely gift for any children, and is nice to listen to for adults as well. Five stars for this CD!

"Fresh out of the delivery area, our son was passed around in glee from grandma, dad, aunt, aunt, uncle, you get the idea. After everyone left, it was naptime for mom and baby. I put on this CD, and I just listened while mom dozed and I held his little hand in awe. So I have an emotional attachment to this album. If you listen to it, you will see why I chose it as the first recording for my son to hear (outside of the womb)
The songs are excellent, just the right amount of parental sentiment mixed in with superb musicianship. The imagery in the lyrics is truly inspired.
We hadn't listened to this CD in a while - my son is now 4 1/2. But when we discovered today that we couldn't find it, I immediately came here to buy another copy. I've forgotten some of the words to 'Lullaby Time in the Desert', and my wife and son won't stop pestering me until I can sing it to them again..."

"Such a wonderful collection of loving songs, sung mostly by bluegrass and folk singers inspired by their own children. The words and melodies are both soothing to our baby and also so moving to her parents. Truly our favorite lullaby cd-- I would buy it for any parents who like good, folksy music and who have tender hearts."
