Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Barry Louis Polisar's song "All I Want is You"  is featured in the soundtrack during the opening credits of the film Juno by Jason Reitman

"If that folk song playing under the opening credits of the quirky new Oscar-buzz comedy Juno vaguely rings a bell—you're under 40, right? "All I Want Is You" was recorded in 1977 by Silver Spring's own Barry Louis Polisar, a pioneer in the now-exploding kiddie music field."  —The Washington Post

"The best of Polisar is back! Barry Louis Polisar was an early pioneer of children's music when his wacky and wonderfully innovative songs began eliciting giggles two decades ago. This rejuvenation of Polisar's endearing and daring musical momentos provides the credibility that the Polisar of the '90s deserves. Thirteen prime picks enhance simply sung spoofs and silly antics with richer accompaniments and subtle and tasteful embellishments (bells, penny whistles, fiddles, reverb and overdubbing, etc). The overall technical quality is far superior to what the studios of the 70s were capable of. Included are "Our Dog Bernard"; "I Wanna Be A Dog"; "All I Want is You"; "I'm A Three-Toed, Triple-Eyed, Double-Jointed Dinosaur"; "What If A Zebra Had Spots"; etc. This is a must have for all libraries serving young children. "  —School Library Journal

"Children's entertainer Barry Louis Polisar is riding high with the film Juno's use of his 'All I Want Is You.'"  —Los Angeles Times News Service (a feature article that appeared in dozens of newspapers)

"The Juno spot has garnered Polisar more mainstream attention than any previous milestone, which included playing at the White House and hosting a nationally syndicated children’s show."  —Kansas City Star
