Overview

With his passing in 2003, TV pioneer Fred Rogers not only left a history of educating and entertaining children behind as his legacy, he also left a rich songbook very few knew Rogers composed himself. This 13-song disc features performers from a wide variety of genres paying homage to Rogers, including Amy Grant, Crystal Gayle, Donna Summer, and Roberta Flack. Songs from the Neighborhood reinvents many of these tunes in a jazzy, laid-back fashion that's not only accessible and catchy to children, but adults will find themselves humming along to these instantly memorable melodies as well. A fitting tribute to a man whose influence will be felt for generations to come. [Also included in the package is a bonus DVD featuring a behind-the-scenes documentary of the making of this album. A highly informative and entertaining watch.]

Mister Rogers has had such a wonderful run on public television. He invoked many happy & safe emotions to me in my childhood. He has lovingly affected many generations of children. What a wonderful sentiment then is this set of his songs so wonderfully interpreted & contributed by some very talented artists. My favorites from this set is DONNA SUMMER's "Are You Brave", CRYSTAL GAYLE's "Did You Know", & TONI ROSE's "Just For Once". This set was recently GRAMMY nominated for Best Children's Recording this year! The songs are great to listen to by Adults & Children alike. Great album!

"Songs From the Neighborhood" is a very well produced album. It takes me back to my childhood and my children love it too. Mr. Rogers was a wonderful man and this album is a glorious tribute to his life and music.
