Good Collection of Songs for Children
on July 11, 2012
I purchased this CD to play for my 2 year old in the car. He likes it, and as adult, I don't mind it either. More details below.
-The vocalist (Larry Groce) is quite good. The songs are not over-done, but at the same time his voice is quite expressive.
-The arrangements are simple, but fun. The kid's will enjoy, but it is still very listenable for adults.
-The song list is fairly comprehensive, with a good variety of children's songs.
-Even though Mickey and Minnie Mouse are on the cover, they are not part of the playlist in any way.
-All songs are by the same vocalist.
-Some of the song choices are questionable, such as "It ain't gonna rain no more" which includes the lyric "How in the heck am I gonna wash my neck." I don't find this objectionable, but others might. Also, I know that there will come a day when I have to address appropriate language with my 2 year old, but I'm in no hurry to do so.
-Song list includes "Dixie". Again, I don't personally find this objectionable (it has a nice melody). But still, it is a song closely associated with the Confederacy, the Rebel flag, and other sensitive topics.
This is a good collection of songs that will entertain children without driving away the adults.
