Free To Be...You And Me
|Amazon Price||New from||Used from|
The iconic pet project of Marlo Thomas. Features Harry Belafonte, Rosie Grier, Mel Brooks, and Diana Ross.
A great hour of brain food for the young—and not-so-young.
There are thousands upon thousands of children's albums out there, but the one that quietly left its mark with more '70s children than perhaps any other album was this disc. Free to Be...You and Me was a pet project of proud feminist Marlo Thomas (a.k.a. "That Girl"), and it was born--according to the liner notes--by the desire to provide her niece with music "to celebrate who she was and who she could be." Harry Belafonte sings "Parents Are People," ex-football great Rosie Grier offers an incredible, touching melody titled "It's All Right to Cry," and Diana Ross waxes future-positive on "When We Grow Up." A great hour of brain food for young--and not-so-young--children. --Denise Sheppard

Record was scratched beyond repair on 1side. Thankfully it wasn't the side with the title song. I LOVE this album! But next time, I'm buying new.Published 1 month ago by Jess
This was the soundtrack of my childhood. I was really excited to get it for my son, but we don't listen to it much because it's rather socially outdated. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Teacher Lady
