Review:
The list of musicians on this album reads like a Who's Who of the performers and groups that make up the children's music scene today: Tom Paxton, Fred Penner, Cathy Fink, Marcy Marxer, Ella Jenkins, Beethoven's Wig, The Re-Bops, Tickle Tune Typhoon, Bill Harley and 20 more. Each was given the challenge of writing a song that lasted no longer than 60 seconds and the results are a testament to human creativity. No two songs are similar and no two subjects overlap: from Picasso to "Alphabet Soup, from a "Little Blue Chevy" to "My Cool Shoes," every performer brings his or her own unique slant to the challenge and the results are sure to delight kids and parents alike. There are plenty of additional musicians (Tom Chapin, Kevin Roth and John McCutcheon come to mind) to make a whole second volume if any would like to add their talents to the challenge.
