Review

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

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!

My kids love this funny, sweet, and terrific album! Kaplan has "Randyized" seventeen classic blues songs. In other words, Kaplan wrote new, often hilarious, child-friendly lyrics set to some great tunes (parents will appreciate his clever sense of humor, as well). We have owned this album for over a month and since it arrived my children will not let me play anything else in the car! And do not forget to read the liner notes, which are full of fascinating information about the blues.
