For our trip back on Sunday I decided to get some new tunes for us to enjoy beyond the 35+ GB already housed on my iPod. There’s a fantastic bookstore in Manchester, VT called the Northshire and they have a terrific children’s section for books, toys, video and music. Prices on music are higher than I’d like to see, but it’s an beautiful independent bookstore, so it’s (hopefully) going to a good place.
- Dan Zanes and Friends – Family Dance
- They Might Be Giants – No!
- David Grisman and Jerry Garcia – Not for Kids Only,/li>
I like them all, though Dan Zanes continues to be a family favorite for us. His songs are highly singable, easy to listen to repeatedly and seem to have a calming effect when we rock out together. TMBG is hit or miss… some songs I had to skip immediately but others seemed good. Have to give more of a listen in time. The Garcia and Grisman is a nice album, though Ashley had a bias against it from some precious Grateful Dead association… 😉 I like other Garcia and Grisman albums and this fits nicely in the same manner of music though is more bluegrass / country than the others.
