Editorial Reviews

Product Description

2012 release that features Randy Kaplan's child-friendly versions of Country Blues and Ragtime numbers from the 1920s, 30s and 40s. Kaplan is a nationally acclaimed artist that Time Out New York Kids magazine recently named as one of the top children's performers in the nation. More than two years in the making, Mr. Diddie Wah Diddie includes 17 songs first performed by the likes of legendary blues musicians Robert Johnson, Blind Blake, Blind Boy Fuller, Jimmie Rodgers, Sonny Boy Williamson, Bessie Smith, Muddy Waters, Mance Lipscomb, Pink Anderson, Mississippi John Hurt, Hambone Willie Newbern, the Reverend Gary Davis, Blind Willie Johnson, Dave Van Ronk, Jim Jackson and Charlie Patton.


What's old is new again with Mr. Diddie Wah Diddie. This is offbeat, smart and funny, funny, funny! --Mindy Thomas- Program Director, Kids Place Live SiriusXM Radio

Mr. Diddie Wah Diddie... is more powerful than a locomotive in the way it drives kids through a range of blues sounds - hearkening back to the '20s, '30s, and '40s - while it entertains them with (Randy's) trademark lyrical wit... Mr. Diddie Wah Diddie is ambitious in its effort to educate young listeners about some of the most significant indigenous music America has produced. It's also funny, insightful, and loving. Who would want to miss out on all of that? --Gregory Keer, Family Man Online

It's been more than a few years since Dan Zanes helped shake up the family music scene with his lively renditions of traditional tunes. Randy Kaplan has done his own take on this concept, and the result is just as wonderful. --Michael Berick, L.A. Parent

5.0 out of 5 stars Mr. Diddie Wah Diddie July 17, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have been a huge fan of Randy for many years, both his adult music and his kids material. This CD does not disappoint! Yet again, I am very impressed and find myself listening to the CD over and over again, laughing out loud, and talking about the songs to my friends. My new baby is only 5 months old but I am already sharing Randy tunes with her. I hold her and dance around with her in my arms and we both have a blast. This music (like all Randy's music) is intelligent and doesn't talk down to the kids. There is something in it for all ages. I highly recommend getting this and all Randy CDs!

We were lucky enough to see Mr. Kaplan the day this record was released. My kids LOVE it and him. This album especially, speaks to all ages. It's his take on classics, which my parents and their parents remember, but with his wonderful imagery and anecdotes which completely enhances the music experience. Mr. Kaplan is truly very gifted and we will treck far and wide to see Mr. Kaplan, but for the times when it's impossible to be in person, this CD is amazing and keeps ALL of us entertained. My kids dance/sing and just have a wonderful time when Randy Kaplan songs start playing!

We got this CD and that night we moved all the furnture and had a dancefest right there in the livingroom! Our 5 yr. old LOVED it! Her favorite is the "Time Out" song but really, the entire cd is golden. It's REAL music for kids. We will definately be purchasing more from Randy Kaplan! Talented, humorous AND fun!
