Lisa Loeb - No Fairy Tale EPK

Biography

Lisa Loeb’s highly anticipated return to the pop/rock world after immersing herself in other projects may be called No Fairy Tale, but it’s actually another charmed chapter of her storybook-like career which began in the mid-90’s. She emerged from the New York coffeehouse and club circuits with her trademark Grammy® nominated hit “Stay (I Missed You)”--the ... Read more in Amazon's Lisa Loeb Store

Editorial Reviews

Catch the Moon is a children's album recorded by longtime friends Lisa Loeb & Elizabeth Mitchell. Liz Mitchell is a noted performer of children’s music and key member of the modern rock band Ida. The package also contains a children's book written by Erin Courtney and illustrated by Brooke Mitchell, who is Elizabeth’s mom. The book is based on the CDs title song which was written by Lisa, Elizabeth, Elizabeth's husband and longtime musical partner Daniel Littleton and engineer Warren Defever (also known for his own records on the 4AD label under the moniker His Name Is Alive).

In additional to the title track, the music CD of Catch The Moon features traditional American family favorite folk songs like "Big Rock Candy Mountain," "Oh Susanna," "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" and "Little Red Caboose." Loeb and Mitchell also adapted traditional folk songs from around the world including Japanese "Donguri," the French "Fais Do Do" and the Spanish "La Manita." There's a version of Bob Dylan's "New Morning" that sounds like it was always meant to be in this soothing, uplifting company, and a handful of new songs by Lisa and Elizabeth written especially for this project

As a new dad, I've been eager to find good music for my little girl. In addition to exposing her to my own strange tastes in all sorts of music (from classical & jazz to punk & indie rock), I've been looking for good children's music for her. In my search, I've noticed a growing number of albums aimed at both children and parents (they may have always been there, but I've only been paying attention recently for obvious reasons). However, most fall into two categories:

1) Children's songs done by modern artists who try and make them sound like pop, rock, punk, folk, or alternative music. Some are interesting, but kids won't like them much. Parents might find it amusing to hear their favorite heavy metal band singing Mary had a Little Lamb or something. Most don't sound very good.

2) Modern artists who try and write songs for kids. Some are fun (like They Might Be Giants) but most sound silly both to adults and kids.

THIS album, however, is really a great mix for adults and kids. In addition to some traditional songs, there is some new material on here as well. The traditional songs have been gently adapted, not forced into a genre of music.

The key is that this album sounds like songs Lisa Loeb and Elizabeth Mitchell might sing to their kids (assuming they have kids) rather than songs they crafted just to get you to buy the CD for your kids. It genuinely sounds like they are enjoying singing for children and not just singing childrens' songs.

The sound is also very natural and in keeping with Lisa Loeb's indie-folk style. With a couple of exceptions, you might not even realize you're listening to music for children. A couple of songs are really beautifully done.

There are a lot of second rate children's albums out there. Many are poorly produced, and the the performers are often less than talented. Fortunately, Catch the Moon, a new children's album from Lisa Loeb and Elizabeth Mitchell, isn't one of them.

Catch the Moon is a collection of classic children's songs that have been masterfully redone by Loeb and Mitchell. One of the nicest things about this album is that most parents will enjoy listening to it. I have personally found myself listening to this album even without my daughter being around.

Another reason this album is so great is that it also comes with a board book. It's beautifully illustrated and fun to read. My daughter likes me to read it to her at least once a day.

We bought this for the baby when she was five months old almost two years ago in Woodstock at a wonderful little kid's store. What a find! The baby immediately loved it, but so did my then-five year old son. And so did my husband and I--the lovely renditions of folk and traditional and original work are wonderful. It bears the inevitable repeated listenings and is my now-two-year-old's favorite album still. I recently included the cover of Dylan's "New Morning" on a mix I made for my adult friend to celebrate her divorce. It's not really kids' music, at least not only kid's music. Buy this, and if you like it, buy everything by Elizabeth Mitchell, like You Are My Sunshine. You won't be sorry.

Knew Lisa Loeb's name from a while ago and knew about Ida, but very taken with this really beautiful compilation. There is clearly a market for 30-something plus year old parents who are into music, who then have little ones. We love this and Elizabeth Mitchell's other CDs.

I admit it, I'm guilty of listening to this cd even when my son is not in the car with me. I even know all the words. It's a great album of folksy, catchy tunes, good for both adults and kids. My son (14 months old) nods his head to his favorites and will always, I mean ALWAYS, calm down and listen when this album comes on....even at the end of a long road trip. Although most of the songs are old favorites (Oh Susanna, Twinkle Twinkle) the featured one, written by Loeb and Mitchell (Catch the Moon,) is really great, and there are some foreign-language songs as well. Mitchell has a few other cd's that are only available on the internet, so if you like what you hear from this one then check those out as well.

Bought this CD for my little girl and it is fun to sing along with and have playing in the background. The music is wonderfully calming. The board book brings my rating down though. The story doesn't make sense and seems like they could have easily come up with a better story.

I have my bought many CDs for my 2 month old already. Lots of Bach, Mozart for babies. I play him tons of Cat Stevens, Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel, even modern mp3s. I got the For the Kids CD which isn't bad, but we love this CD the most so far. Lisa and Elizabeth have sweet soothing voices and my baby really responds to the music! I am constantly singing Catch the Moon and Big Rock Candy Mountain to myself. I really like La Manita and New Morning too. I liked that song from the Reality Bites soundtrack but I think Lisa Loeb has found her niche in kids music!! I am buying more Elizabeth Mitchell CDs for sure.
