Producer: Hopalong Songs
CD Price: $13.00
Review:
Here’s an album of classic songs of Americana sung by Tami Schuch and backed by such world class musicians as Mindy Jostyn, Bill Keith and Steve Bernstein, among others. A perfect album to introduce your children to such staples as “Camptown Races,” “Home On The Range,” “You Are My Sunshine,” “Shenanadoah,” “Beautiful Dreamer” and nine other well known tunes. Each song is given a fine, old timey or bluegrass styled arrangement and Schuch’s voice rings like a clear bell throughout. Between several of the songs are charming old recordings of five-year-old Tami Schuch singing. Background information for each song is provided in the liner notes, and though printed lyrics are not included, children will easily learn these tunes, especially when they hear their parents singing right along.
