Editorial Reviews

In Little Seed, Elizabeth Mitchell embraces the gentle genius of America's musical bard Woody Guthrie, reminding us of how the loving bonds between parent and child endure and are strengthened through song. Moved by Guthrie's simple yet profound songs created for his daughter, and his ability to inhabit both the perspective of a loving, protective parent and the voice of a freewheeling child, Mitchell makes them her own, joined by family and friends to offer us a re-imagined rendition of classic favorites.

I bought the original Woody Guthrie Songs for Mother and Child and while I appreciated its "folksy" vibe, my husband hated it. We are big Elizabeth Mitchell fans anyway, so I was excited to see her take on Woody's songs. It's got some repeats from her previous albums, but that's ok - they're great on this album too. The songs are fun, catchy, and sweet and enjoyable for our whole family to listen to (which is rare for most kids albums!!)

I am an avowed fan of Ms. Mitchell and her family band. She has one of the most distinctive voices around (and the vocals are mixed very well throughout this recording), and the song arrangements are a wonderful combination of innovative and timeless. While several of the songs on this album are available on previous recordings, this album would be a great start for someone new to her music. If you already own some of the already-available tracks, I suggest picking it up as a discounted mp3 album or buying individual tracks. I did this, and songs like "Little Seed" "Why, oh Why?" and "This Land is Your Land" are outstanding "keepers" and have my 2 and 5 year olds singing along. Ms. Mitchell is, in my opinion, a national treasure.

This album has some beautiful old songs on it and Ms. Mitchell's voice is as lovely as ever. It is such a pleasure to listen to kids' music that is actually good! Any cd by Elizabeth Mitchell is my new go -to baby shower gift.

Liz, her husband Dan, and their daughter Storey are delightful company. We listened to this CD many, many times a night, every night, during baby's first months when we were nursing round the clock. Now that our son is 6 months we still have the CD on regular rotation.

Their singing voices are gentle and beautiful. And Guthrie's songs are quirky and complicated and wonderful. I am still trying to figure out the lyrics after approximately 400 listens, which I love. This is my favorite CD of all of the children's music in our collection. (Tho Liz's other children's CDs are must-haves, too!)

It's a great collection to load onto iTunes and put on a smartphone, if you have one. I am glad to be able to pull out this music whenever I need it, whether it's at the park or taking a walk with the stroller or when I'm just in a part of the house where the CD player is out of reach.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Elizabeth Mitchell is one of the most authentic voices of the folk tradition for children and families in a long time. Her albums like Little Flower and Little Bird are must-haves. Her indebtedness to the other voices in the history of folk (Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, etc.) is obvious, and her arrangements of traditional songs are terrific. It is thus with sorrow that I write this review, for this newest CD is really not up to par.

First of all, it costs close to twelve dollars and yet, strangely, is only about 30 minutes long. Second, it consists of a substantial number of already released songs, so that even those thirty minutes are spent in a frustrating realization that, with the purchase of her prior albums, one is only getting about 15-20 minutes of new material.

Perhaps this was a Folkways decision. If so, shame on them. Perhaps I should have read all the fine print before buying, but I trusted Mitchell implicitly, having all of her previous albums (and eve some of the Ida group that is also quite good and that Mitchell leads). I will no longer buy her albums on faith.

There is no way that this album should cost twelve dollars. I am very disappointed.

Wonderful little gift for my granddaughter. Love the resurgence of folk music interest and this does a beautiful job of updating it.

Beautiful songs for little ones and it reminds you of how many songs Woody Guthrie wrote. Our 20 month old grandson loves it!
