Big Blues: Blues Music for Kids

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Heather Phares
As the title suggests, Big Blues: Blues Music for Kids features bluesy yet kid-friendly songs like Taj Mahal's "Fishin' Blues" and "Funky Bluesy ABCs," Maria Muldaur's "Waggy Tailed Dog," and Catfish Hodge's "Pancake Man." Sonny Terry's "Pick a Bale O' Cotton," Jimmy Witherspoon's "There Wouldn't Be a Me," and B.B. King's "Rainy Day Blues" are some of the other standout tracks from this album, which also includes performances by Buckwheat Zydeco, Rita Coolidge, Michelle Shocked, and the Fabulous Thunderbirds. Though it may be intended as a blues primer for young ears, Big Blues winds up being fun for blues fans of all ages.
