Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Little Seed is the perfect way to introduce young kids to folk music and the late, great Woody Guthrie. It's also an album filled with love, honesty, and simple, non-syrupy music and lyrics that celebrate the life, curiosity, and love of a child.
What's the story?
Is it any good?
Mitchell's sweet, endearing vocals and Guthrie's great lyrics reflect a young kid's perspective and capture the parent-child relationship. The melodies and phrases that Mitchell glides over and through make this album a pleasure to listen to. From "Grassy Grass Grass" to "One Day Old," the songs on Little Seed perfectly paint the wonder and sweetness of children, with fuss-free folk that's appealing to little kids and their parents.
