The music is there to help put children to sleep but, because these are not primarily "children's artists", they will easily appeal to the parents (though they too might fall asleep with these (mostly) quiet arrangements. There is Mark Erelli's cover of Wilco's "My Darling" and William Fitzsimmon's take on James Taylor's "You Can Close Your Eyes". I found the latter song a lot grittier than Taylor's version. Fitzsimmon's voice has more of a Tom Waitts quality.
The 11 tracks clock in at just over 30 minutes - but by then the children will be happily asleep. Many of Putumayo's CDs promote a social cause a portion of the sales proceeds goes to a charity. This notation was missing from the notes on this CD so maybe the project has ended. (Hopefully not.)
Step Two: Put on Acoustic Dreamland
Step Three: Leave despite the fact that you really want to stay and listen to the music
This CD is really good. I need to put it on my ipod so I can listen to it in the car. It is a windows down back roads kind of CD. I have to admit I am really picky about music, but I love this CD.
1. Not too folk music-y
2. Not too country (which I don't like)
3. Not too cutesy kiddie
4. Just perfect
