The parents' guide to what's in this music.

What's the story?
Gustafer Yellowgold, a creature from the sun created by illustrator/singer/songwriter Morgan Taylor, apparently had access to some Beatles records during his intergalactic travels, and learned his musical lessons very well. Think Yellow Submarine meets Pee-wee's Playhouse. The scariest that HAVE YOU NEVER BEEN YELLOW? gets is some pondering over a dead bird on "Birds" -- and the simple yet expressive illustrations on the accompanying DVD add just the right touch of intelligent whimsy.
Is it any good?
Prepare to be absolutely charmed by Mr. Yellowgold's whimsical, intelligent, and imaginative take on earthling life. Young and old will find wonderful visual images evoked by the lyrics (for example, image a "bluebird tree"). Yellowgold and his pals -- Pterydactyl Forrest Applecrumbi, Slim the Eel, and Asparagus the Dragon -- go to great musical lengths to prove that children's music doesn't have to cut corners or talk down to kids.
