Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

In a style that recalls his voice-overs on the TV series The Dukes of Hazzard, Waylon Jennings doesn't just sing these 11 original songs for kids, he narrates in between the songs, giving context and meaning. A man who appreciates the way children think and the things they go through as they grow up, Jennings, who calls himself "a big rascal singing about little rascals," writes from a child's point of view, remembering in "When I Get Big," for example, what it's like to dream of growing up to become president--ending the wars, protecting all the animals from harm--and how it feels to be a boy with too many sisters ("All of My Sisters Are Girls"). Several of the songs revolve around strikingly fresh ideas--a child's celebration of "Dirt," for starters--and Jennings isn't shy about rocking several to his trademark "thump-bump" beat. All in all, a different sort of children's record from the man who insists he's "a kid trapped in a grown-up body." --Alanna Nash

Review

This album by country legend Waylon Jennings is not for those who find a boys-only-like-"boy"-stuff and girls-only-like-"girl"-stuff attitude alarmingly retro. (The spirit with which the album was created is anything but retro). Jennings, in disarming, simple intros between winning original songs, explains why a little boy yearns for a boy pal to climb trees with ("All of My Sisters Are Girls") or to get grubby with ("Dirt"). In his signature whiskey baritone, he performs with such tenderness and gentle, tongue-in-cheek humor it's no surprise to learn that the songs were inspired by young relatives, most particularly his youngest son. "If I Could Only Fly" is a child's imagined freedom flight that notes, "but I'd always come right back"; "Cowboy Movies" is a song about a dad who, wanting to share his passion for Westerns, is gently clued in that his son is "a nowboy," not a cowboy. Jennings is a spellbinding storyteller in "Useless, the Little Horse That Didn't Grow," a tale he wrote with his son to affirm that heroes can be small, even shy; he locks the message in a song called "Small Packages." A boy-and-girl chorus joins in. The musicians, including Jennings on guitar, are top-notch. A 1998 Parents' Choice® Gold Award.

Reviewed by Lynne Heffley, Parents' Choice® 1998 -- From Parents' Choice®

This children's album is really a little boy's album: "a big rascal singing about little rascals," as Jennings has put it. . . . It is, political incorrectness notwithstanding, a delightful romp, with all the tunes written from a boy's perspective. . . . [Jennings] seems the ideal singer to communicate to all the little good young boys out there. . . . -- Entertainment Weekly

Waylon Jennings will never be dead as long as his die hard fans like yours truly live on. He is the best....the very best of what I call country ever. He was no Outlaw....just didn't like to be shafted and let the world know what they could do if they tried to put him in a box....uh uh...he was great and lived his life as he saw fit...and not by any one's rules.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cowboys, Sisters, Rascals & Dirt by Waylon Jennings September 1, 2000
Format:Audio CD
How excited I was to find a Waylon for kids! We have a local celebration each year called Frontier Days, and I have dancers that perform. It has been a very long time since finding new music geared to kids for the Western Theme, and there are some delightful songs on this CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great kids CD--especially for boys April 17, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Here, Waylon shows that he understands how kids think better than most adults. You can ignore the EW comment that it is 'politically incorrect'. There's nothing racist or sexist or anything like that to worry about. They probably wrote that because this CD is more for boys than girls. This is a great CD for kids.
