Product Description

Various artists compilation of children's songs featuring Maroon 5, R.E.M., Dixie Chicks, Madonna, Blue Man Group, & more.

Amazon.com

It benefits a great cause (preschool education for all American children), its star-studded lineup makes you want to have a listen regardless of your station in life (college kid, mother of quintuplets), and its stylishly askew songs are masterfully sequenced (Dixie Chicks chug into Madonna, Jack Johnson gives way to Moby), so that each track comes across a pleasant surprise. The only problem with Mary Had a Little Amp, if there is one, is its title, which gives the impression that it's a hard-rocking affair when mostly it's not. For example, R.E.M. rightfully conjures images of cranking amps, but here the band tones it down with the playful, hyper-rhythmic "We Walk." And Bonnie Raitt, saluted as much for her slide guitar chops as her singing, turns in a snuggly rendition of "Baby Mine" from Dumbo. --Tammy La Gorce

My five-year-old daughter and I really love this CD. The covers are great "versions" of the originals, and the original tracks are great additions to the overall feel of this CD. Maroon 5's "Pure Imagination" is fantastic, as is The Dixie Chick's "The Rainbow Connection." It's a great CD to listen to together and it doesn't drive you crazy after the fifth time because it's kinda "rockin'". If your children are strictly into "kiddie" types of music, i.e. Laurie Berkner, this probably isn't going to be their thing. My daughter is older and is, thankfully, expanding her musical tastes. This is something we both enjoy, minus the singing veggies and all...I highly recommend this to more mature children.

While I like many of the artists on this album, not all of the songs seem real "kid friendly". I agree with the previous reviewer that the Maroon 5 song is just too dark. If you are looking for a great kids album that you can tolerate listing to over and over again, I recommend buying the original "For the Kids" instead; that CD didn't leave my car disc player for 5 months! No joke!

This CD is very disappointing. My husband and I have become big fans of a wide range of "all ages" music and were optimistic about this CD, which was put together for a good cause. We just got through listening to it with our 2-year old and were surprised at how listless all the cuts were. There is not one fun, bouncy, danceable tune in the bunch--with the exception perhaps of the Indigo Girls cut. Our son loves to dance and really enjoys engaging music. This compilation edges toward the depressive at times. Even "Pure Imagination" hits a few too many minor notes for such a joyful song.

Bought this for my 10 month old whose favorite song is the Rainbow Connection by the Dixie Chicks. While this album is quite adult sounding it is nothing short of brilliant. Every song was beautifully mastered and redone. The Maroon 5 cover of Pure Imagination......let me tell you OM-FRICKIN-G!!! Looooove. This album does not deserve the low rating everyone is giving it. They're not giving this album a chance because it's not so child like. But if you're a music lover as I am. You will be blown away. 5 stars and beyond!

As for the seller. Everything was perfect! Description, condition(not one single scratch), and the shipping just as stated. Exact. You are awesome. I well definitely buy from you again. Thank you

I hate to say this, but my daughter and I disliked this album. We have an extensive music library including everything from the MOldy Peaches to They Might Be Giants to Ralph Covert to Dan Zanes. And as a whole we love musicthat makes you want to dance. As my two year old stated yucky. And I have to agree, we rather listen to CSN original verision of Teach Your Children or any of CSN songs, And Madonna album has better sounding songs then the Little Star honestly get the original verision of the songs. We did not get any further then song 6 which is Baby of Mine, so the album may improve after the 6 song, but I would be suprised.

My 3yr son loves to sing and dance! I loved the title of this cd and most of the artists. However i was disappointed when i actually listened to it. There is really nothing upbeat about any part of this cd. In my option, i think an adult would enjoy it more than a child. Most of the songs are slow, which my 3yr old lost interest in very quickly! I was looking for classic, fun, easy to sing and dance to music and this was just not it.

Not sure why almost all of the songs on this CD are very slow kind of lullabye songs. Very Boring. Kids don't want to relax with only slow songs! Not what I expected with such great, normally upbeat artists as contributors.

First off I will say...I am NOT a fan of kids' music. Laurie Berkner, Dan Zane, and Raffi make me want to run screaming from the room. This is the first children's CD that I find immensely enjoyable and my 6 year old daughter loves it, too. The tracks are light-hearted enough for my daughter to listen to over and over. And I like the overall message and tone of the CD...little star; reduce, reuse, recycle; rainbow connection; baby mine. Four thumbs up from me and my daughter!!
