Product Description

Bob McGrath, beloved by children for generations as Bob on Sesame Street, presents a wonderful collection of early childhood favorites that encourage singing and creative play. As always, Bob has a warm, friendly vocal approach that kids are drawn to, giving a familiar and engaging spark to songs like "This Little Light Of Mine," "If You're Happy and You Know It," "Hokey Pokey," "Wheels On the Bus" and many more classics. Each song is presented in both a vocal and an instrumental version, so kids can decide if they want to sing along with Bob or sing alone (full lyrics included in the liner notes). The songs are all rendered with cute, upbeat musical arrangements based on light rhythm, twinkly xylophones, guitar, banjo and bear a zydeco flavor in places. A great way to augment the learning fun of Sesame Street!

Songs, activities, and rhythms for the effervescent pre-schooler that can be listened to again and again with undiminished pleasure. --Parents Choice

Parents' Choice Classic Award Winner.

Bob McGrath is an American singer and actor, best known for playing the human character Bob on the groundbreaking and classic Sesame Street. Along with Susan, played by Loretta Long, he has been one of the two longest lasting human characters on the PBS series. Equally long is his recording career, with over 20 recordings for children and even more for adults (he is a best-selling recording artist in Japan with a series of successful albums of Irish and other folksongs and ballads sung in Japanese).

Bob's Favorite Sing Along Songs is a GREATEST HITS collection of 15 songs from McGrath's two earlier Sing Along With Bob albums, with the welcomed addition of new instrumental versions that follow every song. This collection includes such children's music classics as If You're Happy and You Know It, When the Saints Go Marching In, This Little Light of Mine, Hokey Pokey, and He's Got the Whole World in Our Hands. Also included are such Bob McGrath classics as Sing When the Spirit Says Sing, My Dog Rags, and his classic take on Sing, Sing a Song all performed in his lovely warm and familiar tenor. We can't help thinking that the world is just a little better place because of the wonderful music of Bob McGrath. --Parents Choice

By Jeffrey Cohen on August 20, 2013
Format: Audio CD
Few people become instantly familiar when you refer to them by something longer than their actual name. If you name-drop "Bob McGrath" and get head scratching in return, try "Bob from Sesame Street" and watch the jubilation.

A ubiquitous presence on American television for more than 40 years due to his tenure on PBS' Sesame Street, Bob has also written books and released nine children's recordings. He considers his latest, BOB'S FAVORITE SING ALONG SONGS, to be a compendium of tunes from the "great American songbook for children."

Essentially a "greatest hits" collection with 15 songs from two earlier "Sing Along With Bob" albums, the twist is the inclusion of new instrumental versions that follow every track. So kids can listen (or sing along) with Bob, and then perform their own karaoke versions. Lyrics are included in the packaging.

Don't look for classic Sesame tunes here (that's another one of Bob's CDs). Songs range from the very familiar ("Wheels on the Bus") to the semi-obscure ("Skinamarink"). After 60-plus years of singing and performing, Bob's voice is just as you remember it - a clear, strong tenor that bends to the necessary emotions of the moment. For example, the litany of feelings expressed in "If You're Happy and You Know It."

Back in 1969, my school (MacAfee Road School in Somerset, NJ) was chosen to "beta test" a new children's TV show. They marched a few hundred kids into the auditorium and unspooled 30 minutes of test footage for what became Sesame Street. I remember the night the show premiered, I was allowed to stay up late to see it (I recall a 7:30 pm start). Ironically, I yawned after a few minutes because "I saw this stuff." But I became a Sesame convert soon after and it was thrill to receive this CD, decades later.

I bought this because I always loved it when Bob sang on Sesame Street. I needed a cd that had the instrumental version as well as vocals. Most of the songs will be great to use in class. The only negative is that some are a little "mature" sounding with slower rhythm and just not as lively as when they were sung on the show. "Sing" is a good example of that. But, all in all, I'm happy with the selection.
