LOMAX, THE HOUND OF MUSIC FAVORITE SONGS

LOMAX, THE HOUND OF MUSIC FAVORITE SONGS

Fall 2010 Music
Ages: 3 - 7 yrs.
CD Price: $14.95
Review:

Upbeat music from the PBS Kids puppet/live-action series about a train-traveling, tune-loving hound dog and the musical friends, young and old, whom he meets along the way. Keeping tradition alive, Lomax and friends bring to a new generation such folk favorites as "Skip to My Lou," "The Cat Came Back" and "I Had a Rooster," along with adaptations that include a Rossini-inspired "Duet for Two Cats," to a new generation. The collection, ending with sing-along tracks, represents the TV show's first season and was compiled by leading music educator John M. Feierabend, professor of music and director of the Music Education Division at the University of Hartford.
