"McCutcheon is not out to prove anything, only to entertain...A fine album. A." Susan Stewart, Entertainment Weekly
"Whether gently hammering a dulcimer on the title cut or nearly rocking out on the traditional "Over In the Meadow," McCutcheon performs his second children's record with spirit and a backup band that's sensitive to the material." Parents' Choice
"The 1988 release features McCutcheon's exquisite world music arrangements and authentic instrumentation. It is the only album for children I have heard that exceeds merely quoting musical genres: it embodies them completely. McCutcheon serves up a spicy combination of South African beat, calypso, reggae, bluegrass, string band music, rock 'n' roll, new age folk-jazz, and Latin American-influenced music." Acoustic Guitar
You have 2 options for downloading this album.
1) Mp3 files. These are smaller files, more quickly downloaded, and take up less space on your devices. This is what almost all downloads are from everywhere.
2) Wav files. These are larger, full-range audio files, like you would get on a CD. They'll take longer to download and will take up more space. These are rarely offered as download files.
So why are we offering both? Because John works hard to get his albums sounding great and the compression used on mp3 files erases much of the fine tuning. John hates mp3's. Most musicians do. Yeah, we know it's kinda snobbish, but ears are what a musician is paid for, huh?
If you don't want to choose, you can have both. Listen to the mp3's on your mobile devices and burn a CD with the wav files for the total listening experience. With our compliments.
Thanks for your interest, thanks for being careful, and thanks for helping us all get through this with our souls intact.
