I'm further biased by his inclusion of a song dedicated to my 2 1/2 year old daughter Ileanna. While my father has included his newest songs within this collection he has included other songs that I grew up with. These songs ( S.F. Zoo, Pickle Song) are so familiar to me sometimes I forget that others haven't necessarily heard them already.
Pick up this CD it comes with the heart and soul of a true American Folk Singer who after years of struggle offers you some truly vintage songs 25 yeard in the making and the artistry of a well tuned performer.
The only thing that one might find missing from this colection of songs, compared to Mark's earlier albums, are the political and social ballads (12th Ave., White Winged Dove etc.), that were so prevelant in the 60's.
I attribute this change of content in his music, to Mark's family and his own spirituality having become such an important part of his life.
The children's songs are heartfelt and honest, up-beat and happy. The blues influence is still strong in "Out Of My Hands", with tracks such as "T-Bone T-Bone Blues". The instrumental piece, "San Joaquin County Fair" is one of the best guitar pieces you will ever hear.
If you want music that is great for the whole family, I strongly advise you to buy Mark Spoelstra's "Out Of My Hands"!!!
