5.0 out of 5 stars Twenty-two years later, a rediscovery. February 22, 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In 1982, I lived in Austin, Texas. You know, that place. One night, dejected after my English girlfriend dumped me for an English guy (probably cousins), I aimlessly headed out for a few "I'm sorry for myself" beers. I went to a tavern I'd never set foot in before when I noticed a sign for a group called "Trout Fishing in America." I read the sign again, thinking to myself, "Trout Fishing in America?" I went in.
The first sign that the evening might develop into something memorable was when I bumped into a guy with long blond hair, heading for the stage holding a guitar. Nothing unusual there, except I was about eye level with his Adams apple, and I'm six feet four inches. Then another guy who appeared to be about two feet shorter than the blond guy headed for the stage. "Hm," I thought. I shoved my beer back to the bartender and ordered coffee. Something told me that I wanted to be wide awake for this one.
I could have skipped the coffee. What followed was a slowly developing evening of enchantment. The great musicianship and particularly involving harmonies of those two guys had the effect of grabbing me, shaking the hardness out of my heart, and not letting go until closing time. I left the establishment with nary a thought of my now-former girlfriend and her English cousin.
Over the years, I sometimes thought about those guys, but before the internet, thinking about them was about all it came to. Fast forward to this year. My wife comes home and announces that we've been invited to go with some friends and their kids to see "Trout Fishing in America" here in northern California.

5.0 out of 5 stars We love Trout Fishing! November 26, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
We bought this CD about 4 or 5 years ago after we saw them perform "Teddy Bear Picnic" for an adult audience in Texas. We were smitten. The music has become part of our family history. My husband sings the sweet "Lullaby" to our children and I always get a lump in my throat when I hear it. I think it will be a classic lullaby one day. Our kids sing all the words to all the songs. The lyrics are right on their level and are very funny. The CD is still a favorite even though they've grown and changed for 4 years. (Our oldest child is now 13.) I've never tired of hearing the music, because if you took away the words, the guitar and base music would grab you anyway. Keith and Ezra are very talented musicians and there's a thread of the blues running through some of their songs. Sometimes, I find myself (a non-singer) belting out a chorus along with my kids..."Pico de Gallo...don't get it in your eye-o!" We've gone to two of their live performances for children, which are great! If you want the feel of a children's concert, get their video "Go Fish." It has many of these same songs performed live on stage. I once got stopped for going 40 mph in a 30 mph zone. The policeman took one look at the photograph on my license and said, "Anyone who gets their picture taken wearing a Trout Fishing in America shirt can't be all bad." He did not give me a ticket! My kids were absolutely gleeful! Hey, you might say Trout Fishing got me off the HOOK!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love these Fishermen! October 11, 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was first introduced to Trout Fishing in a bar when I was in college, and I LOVED them. I am so thrilled that they are still around and that they are still great. I love this CDs wry humor (I'm Gonna Be in Big Trouble) and the varied beats. These are two guys who totally remember what it was like to be a kid. My son (just 2) loves this CD and dances around the house with me when it's on. He really loves the gallumphing sound of When I Was a Dinosaur along with the dinosaur voices these guys have come up with. I love this CD and recommend it to anyone, but especially to anyone with kids.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this album even before I had children! March 17, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
A friend introduced me to the music of Trout Fishing when I was a single law school student. This album immediately became my favorite, and I love it even more now that I have two boys with whom to share it! My husband had no idea what was in our CD player, but he was hooked by the end of the first song. Everyone I have shared it with buys a copy. The music captures the essence of childhood and the every-day things children think and say. A friend with a child who hated her after-school day care was able to eliminate the tantrums by having her listen to "Day Care Blues." Most children's comments trigger a lyric for me. All the songs are great, but I especially love "I think I'll Need a Band-Aid" (it makes me laugh) and "Lullaby" (it makes me cry). Who cares if you don't have children; you'll love it anyway!

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny, sweet and silly March 2, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I don't have kids, but I love this album! It's become one of my standard gifts when my friends have babies.
The songs range from kid standards performed with wonderfully weird style ("The Cat Came Back," "Teddy Bears Picnic") to a nursery rhyme polka that must be heard to be believed ("The Window") to hilarious originals kids and adults will love equally ("I Think I'll Need a Band-Aid," "Daycare Blues.")
I know enough kids to know that when they like something, they play it over and over again. With Trout Fishing in America, their parents won't mind.
