Daddies Sing GoodNight: A Fathers' Collection of Sleepytime Songs

( 3 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
This is a thoroughly charming, and occasionally heartbreaking, collection of children's bedtime songs performed from a father's perspective by an all-star cast of bluegrass and modern folk artists. There are one or two predictable standards, like James Taylor's "Sweet Baby James" performed gently by the Seldome Scene and Leon Redbone's rendition of the old Irving Berlin song "Russian Lullaby," but most of these are original tunes written for the children of those who perform them. In most cases this means remarkably sweet and personal songs like Alan O'Bryant's "My Little One" and Townes Van Zandt's "Hey Willy Boy." But in at least one case the effect is more bittersweet:...

In most cases this means remarkably sweet and personal songs like Alan O'Bryant's "My Little One" and Townes Van Zandt's "Hey Willy Boy." But in at least one case the effect is more bittersweet: Doc Watson performs two songs, "Prairie Lullaby" and "My Little Buckaroo," in memory of his son and lifetime musical partner, Merle, who was tragically killed in a farm accident not too long before this album was recorded. All of this gives an unexpected level of emotional complexity to what is a deeply moving album overall.

    Have had this CD since daughter turned 1..

    ...and we still listen to it every night before bed ( she is almost 5). LOVE this CD. So relaxing for us all, by far one of our best purchases!!! This CD has become a special part of our nighttime routine.

    This was a hit with our whole family

    The songs are varied in style and the performances are simple and true, just what you want in a lullaby, without glitzy overproduction. Unlike so much children's music, will not insult your ears or your child's. My husband prefers this to almost all my son's music.
