What's the story?

Daddy A Go Go, aka John Boydston, who produced and played the instruments -- and sang the songs -- on EAT EVERY BEAN AND PEA ON YOUR PLATE, is assisted by a crew of able-bodied musicians and singers that includes his family. They power their way through a fifth offering of squeaky-clean, kid-friendly songs -- with nods mostly to the classic and alternative rock genres. The CD tackles such topics as proper nutrition for the small fry, a losing baseball team, and the curse of having a younger sibling, all presumably aimed at the 5- to 7-year-old set. But there's fun too: a reworked cover of Blitzkrieg Bop as \"Kids Beat Bop,\" Spinal Tap's \"Listen to the Flower People,\" a pun-ridden take on Pink Floyd called \"Pink Floyd Saves Hugh Manatee,\" and a lovely instrumental of Lulu's \"To Sir With Love\" a la surf-twang guitar.

Is it any good?

QUALITY
 

The selection of songs on this CD could make it a favorite for the whole family: Daddy A Go Go certainly does rock, but this album is probably best appreciated after repeated listens, as the references to rock bands and songs become more obvious. Bottom line: If CDs were made of vinyl, your kids would probably wear it out!

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about what makes rock 'n' roll so enjoyable. They can discuss some of the CD's themes, such as good nutrition and dealing with siblings. Or they might just want to have a living room dance party!
