Laurie Berkner Band - "Victor Vito"


Laurie Berkner has been a professional musician since 1992, but her success as a children’s recording artist was a surprise to her. “It was so unexpected,” says Laurie. “I’d been performing in rock bands (including Lois Lane, an all-female cover band, as well as her own original rock band, Red Onion) and struggling to write original music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Laurie Berkner = Magic August 7, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I have two daughters, age 6 and 2. We stumbled upon Laurie's music on Noggin a few years ago, and have been adding her albums to our collection since that time. I can hardly express how this music fills me with joy. I watch my children dancing around the living room to Fast and Slow - they call to me to join them, and then all three of us are spinning around the living room. There is something different about this; we have music by Raffi, Steve and Greg, etc. and at the very best, I can tolerate it. Still, if any music by those other artists pops up on my iPod during my daily commute, I can't get to the controls quickly enough to skip the music. When Laurie comes on, I not only leave it along, but I sing along and usually feel happier by the time the song is over.

For fans of previous Laurie Berkner albums - this continues in the tradition of her previous efforts - inventive lyrics and great, catchy tunes. I would say that the overall production on the album is a notch above previous efforts, and that the songs have a slighly more mature feel without losing Laurie's unique understanding of a child's heart. There are 5 songs that will instantly take their place among your favorite children's tunes: Rocketship Run, Candy Cane Jane, Fast and Slow, Mouse in My Toolbox, and All Around My Room.

There is something very special about an artist who can create and perform music that is technically sophisticated, inventive, occasionally hilarious, and doesn't talk down to kids. A treasure for my whole family, for the preschool children I know and work with, and highly, highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterfully produced and enthusiastically recommended September 6, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Children's music requires the same caliber of intelligent professionalism, originality, and performance standards as does music for adult audiences. The Laurie Berkner Band (consisting of Laurie Berkner in collaboration with Susie Lampert and Adam Bernstein) flawlessly perform and record twenty-four new songs (and in the case of Going on a Hunt in four different musical styles) range from a Brazilian samba to an Irish jig, to a folk song set against a gospel/country background. Lively vocals based on 'kid friendly' melodies (that will also have an immense and immediate appeal to their parents), this masterfully produced and enthusiastically recommended CD album showcases Going on a Hunt-ska (1:11); Mouse in My Toolbox (2:17); Candy Cane Jane (3:07); All Around My Room (1:30); One More Stop on the Train (2:15); Going On a Hunt - blues (1:04); Jump and Fly (2:31); Pigbasket (2:06); Five Day's Old (3:05); Mr. Bassman - and Piano Girl (2:33); Winter Lullaby (2:34); Let's Samba (2:39); Going on a Hunt - conga (1:11); My Blue Sailboat (2:31); Balance Beam (2:04); thunderstorm (2:08); Fast and Slow (2:22); Going on a Hunt - jig (1:10); Farm Song (2:32); Nona (1:29); Walk Along the River (3:16); Going on a Hunt - hand jive (1:43); Fly Me to the Moon (2:44); and the title piece, Rocketship Run (2:24).

5.0 out of 5 stars packaging is eco-friendly August 13, 2008
By RoxyM
Format:Audio CD
To the person who complained about the packaging looking cheap - this was a conscious choice because it is better for the environment than using the "classic" plastic jewel case.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as Impressed as I am with the others February 21, 2009
By Jess LB
Format:Audio CD
We are BIG Laurie Berkner fans in our house. We have her DVD and all of her CDs to date, so of course we were excited to see this one come out and I got it for my daughter for Christmas. To be honset, I was EXTREMELY dissapointed with this CD. Laurie only writes half of the songs, her bandmates write the others, and it shows. The quality is not as high as her other albums. You can definately hear the difference in the lyrics, flow of the song, and style of music that the songs are written by less experienced musicians. My other problem with this CD is "We're going on a Hunt" is on the CD multiple times. Even my almost 4 year old picked up on it, and she found it just as annoying as I did. "Why is Laurie singing this song again?" she asks when we play the cd. I would not buy this CD unless you are a die hard Laurie fan and *have* to have the entie collection. Stick to her earlier CDs. Either that or dowload the songs you want if they are available individually. This CD will wear on your nerves very quickly.

2.0 out of 5 stars Tedious March 17, 2009
By mckabq
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this cd for my 5 year old and 13 month old daughters. It was our first Laurie Berkner cd and our last as my five year old begged me to "never play it again." The song "Going on a Hunt" repeats throughout the cd - the theme being an ongoing treasure hunt - but it is very wearing. The remaining songs aren't particularly interesting and have the same wearing quality as the treasure hunt song.

2.0 out of 5 stars Like the artist, not this particular CD April 3, 2009
Format:Audio CD
We love her earlier CD (Victor Vito) but this one just didn't interest my girl. Not sure if it was the topic(she is a tomboy so I doubt it) or the style. But we fast-forwarded through each song, quickly determining that this wasn't the CD for her. Went back to the earlier recording and she's singing along again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great music for the whole family! May 1, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
We love LBB! Rocketship Run was actually the first album we bought, my son loved it so much that we ordered several of her older albums as well. We love all the songs, especially on Rocket Ship run. My son now 5 has every song memorized from all of our LB albums. My husband and I also enjoy singing and listening along as well. We have a few "toddler music" albums of the usual kid's nursery rhymes and while those are nice for your kids, they get really old for mom and dad! But not Laurie, she is very fun and upbeat and the lyrics themselves are sweet, fun, endearing etc...So it makes for fun for the whole family. My 1.5 yr old daughter enjoys it as well. If you like Laurie Berkner you'll definitely like Rocketship Run. If you like this album you might also check out the imagination movers. They are very similar in style and fun for all ages as well and they never get old! :)

Laurie is the best! I love that her songs are enjoyable for adults (not overly 'produced' and 'kid-ified'). But the songs are still fun and entertaining for my two-year old.
