Review:
Joni Mitchell's classic "Circle Game" introduces ruminative songs about parenthood culled from the original recordings. Sweet Honey in the Rock sets a Kahlil Gibran poem to music, John Lennon sings tenderly to his own son ("Beautiful Boy"), and The Pretenders reprise Bob Dylan's "Forever Young." The invigorating mix of sounds-- male and female voices, solo and group, a cappella and full orchestration-- reflect joy, pride, pain, sorrow, love: all the emotion parenthood evokes.
