Overview

Tired of seeing those couch potatoes known as your children sprawled motionless in front of a screen? Put on this hip-shaking, feet-motivating disc, and watch them come to life. This collection brings together rock-'n'-roll tunes tailor-made for gyrating around the room, and while there is a small component of novelty songs, there are numerous bona fide rock and soul classics here as well. In the former category are Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs' Tex-Mex rave-up "Wooly Bully," a fun bit of fluff if ever there was one, and Rick Dees's "Disco Duck" (a bit tedious for adults, but little kids love it). In the latter category are Chuck Berry's "No Particular Place to Go," the Beach Boys' "Fun Fun Fun" and "Barbara Ann," and the Jackson 5's exuberant "I Want You Back," featuring a high-voiced, prepubescent Michael Jackson. Almost-forgotten names such as Major Lance ("Monkey Time") and Claudine Clark ("Party Lights") strut their stuff, as do perennial favorites such as Chubby Checker, whose "The Twist," included here, launched a nationwide dance craze nearly half a century ago.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - John Bush
A Child's Celebration of Dance Music is a rollicking compilation of delightful novelties and up-tempo pop
ockers, including tracks like "Disco Duck," "Duke of Earl," "Wooly Bully," "Palisades Park," "The Battle of New Orleans," "Monkey Time," two tracks by the Beach Boys ("Fun Fun Fun," "Barbara Ann") and two as well by Chubby Checker ("The Twist," "Limbo Rock"). It's an enjoyable compilation for tykes of all ages.
