A Child's Celebration of Soul

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Moira McCormick
Music for Little People founder Leib Ostrow grew up in 1960s Detroit, where he was exposed to the full flowering of the Motown sound -- an incredibly energizing experience for the young Ostrow, who says the music made him want to "cry and laugh at the same time, but still feel good all over." Now he introduces classic soul music to a new generation via a vibrant collection of tunes. Beginning with Ike & Tina Turner's magnificent "Proud Mary," A Child's Celebration of Soul offers a cornucopia of styles and eras.

Barnes & Noble - Moira McCormick
Music for Little People founder Leib Ostrow grew up in 1960s Detroit, where he was exposed to the full flowering of the Motown sound -- an incredibly energizing experience for the young Ostrow, who says the music made him want to "cry and laugh at the same time, but still feel good all over." Now he introduces classic soul music to a new generation via a vibrant collection of tunes. Beginning with Ike & Tina Turner's magnificent "Proud Mary," A Child's Celebration of Soul offers a cornucopia of styles and eras. There's the propulsive funk of James Brown's "Get on the Good Foot," the all-out dance fever of Archie Bell & the Drells' "Tighten Up," the bubblegum soul of the Jackson 5's exuberant "Rockin' Robin," the seasoned, hard-livin' vibe of Otis Redding's "Chain Gang," the blue-eyed soul of the Rascals' "It's a Beautiful Morning," and the signature song of the queen of soul herself, Aretha Franklin's "Respect." Music for Little People mainstays Linda Tillery and the Cultural Heritage Choir offer a contemporary take on "Name Game," and folk-blues giant Taj Mahal does a sinuous, hip-hop-laced cover of Sly Stone's ode to tolerance and inclusion, "Everyday People," with its disarming snatches of playground song. If you're looking for a little bit of soul for your kids, this Celebration's a good place to start.
All Music Guide - Heather Phares
A Child's Celebration of Soul continues the Music for Little People series of music primers for kids. This collection features classic soul from the '60s and '70s, including Aretha Franklin's "Respect," Archie Bell & the Drells' "Tighten Up," Robert Parker's "Barefootin'," and Sam & Dave's "Soul Man." Refreshingly, for the most part this album uses the original recordings instead of lightweight covers, which makes A Child's Celebration of Soul even more entertaining for parents and kids alike.
