Review:
Stirring, inspirational and filled with all-embracing warmth and acceptance, this beautiful celebration of shared humanity leaves no one out, young or old. Ted Danson reads excerpts from the writings of Woody Guthrie; narrations by Danny Glover include "Ballad of the Underground Railroad," leading into "Follow the Drinking Gourd," poignantly sung by Eric Bibb, Linda Tillery and Taj Mahal; and Maya Angelou's poem, "Human Family." Other heart-songs that strike the chord of commonality include Raffi's "Like Me and You," "Somos el Barco," sung by John McCutcheon; and Freyda Epstein's tender lullaby, "Dreams of Harmony" ("Wherever You Rest Your Head Tonight/We Are All One Family/Let's Hold Tight...").
