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!!)

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.

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.

Another beautiful CD by a magic family group; mom, dad, and the charming accompaniment of their daughter. Their voices are soothing. The songs are addictive and once the CD is over our kids just want to listen to it again and again.

We were afraid that now that they had achieved solid 'children's music' notoriety, and their girl Storey had grown that the music would be more mature, and perhaps loose it's magic.. . . . .. Absolutely not! They are just fantastic. The songs just hug the listener. Bathing you in childlike tranquility. Dad has retained his down to earth sound on his little guitar. And Elizabeth, well she's just a unique voice.

Having tried many other children's music (only to have listened to it once and put away), we are excited to see our kids sing along and dance to yet another great Elizabeth Mitchell project.

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.

For fans of Mitchell, you will recognize several of the songs on this album as they were released on other albums, but there are many new tracks to enjoy as well. Woody Guthrie had such a gruff voice but his children's songs were amazing, Elizabeth Mitchell makes these songs accessable to a new young audience (or grown ups who love good folk music). A fun, playful album that is sing-a-long-able, perfect for roadtrips with the kids or bathtime, which is when we listen to it at our house. Proof that good music is timeless!

We keep this ready to go in the car and on our electronic devices (thanks Amazon prime!) because this is one of two albums that seem to always work to calm a fussy baby. Especially great because it doesn't drive me crazy after hearing it 200x :)

I really love this CD, It's the type of sweet kind music a child needs to hear, Some tunes are catchy and I find myself singing them when I
awake at night. Just perfect for my 2 yr old grand baby and me.
