Product Description

Product Description

I will ship by EMS or SAL items in stock in Japan. It is approximately 7-14days on delivery date. You wholeheartedly support customers as satisfactory. Thank you for you seeing it.

An aptly named album if ever there was one, Not for Kids Only combines the talents of two legendary performers, the late Jerry Garcia, singer/guitarist of the Grateful Dead, and David Grisman, mandolinist and father of "dawg music", a melding of bluegrass, jazz, swing, Latin and Jewish klezmer sounds. On this 1993 recording, the two devoted friends make seemingly effortless music, adapting traditional and old-time folk into a personalised sound so "homemade" (with jew's-harp and tambourine) as to inspire any child, young or old, to pick up whatever's at hand to play along. From the jaunty rhythms of "Jenny Jenkins" to the cornball humour of "Arkansas Traveller" and the laugh-out-loud lyrics of "A Horse Named Bill" ("I had a girl and her name was Daisy / And when she sang the cat went crazy"), this album, with Garcia's delightful hand-drawn cover art, tickles from top to bottom. --Alanna Nash

13 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 3 Jun. 2003
Format: Audio CD
This collection of children’s songs is intended to simulate a situation in which Jerry plays guitar, David plays mandolin and both sing children’s songs while the family gathers round to listen. The family is not represented here – you have to supply that - although there are a few other musicians lending their talents in support of Jerry and David.
The result is a very folksy album. An adult not listening closely might not even notice that this is a children’s album until a few tracks have been played, but children are always quick to realise what this album is about. And so this album lives up to its title. Adults can appreciate the instrumental skills (whether they like the songs or not) while the children enjoy the songs.
The most famous song is surely Teddy bears’ picnic, though Freight train and Shenandoah lullaby are also well known. The acoustic treatment brings a freshness to these songs, so even if you have heard these songs too many times already, you might enjoy them anyway.
This is an excellent album that children will enjoy, but so will adults.

Format: Audio Cassette
Bearing in mind that it is now impossible to undertake any journey without the freight train song playing continuously (unless one is prepared to put up with continuous and vehement protest from the 2 year old in the back seat), and I can still sing along to it without going mad, this CD is a winner.
As the previous reviewer said, don't listen too closely to the lyrics of the songs and you can pretend that you are actually playing grown up music!

the real thing: engaging, wonderful music 4 July 2000
By P. Tufts - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is a favorite with every kid I know. But what do kids know? They listen to Raffi. *
From an adult perspective, this tape is amazing. The playing is superb and intelligent, the lyrics are sincere, heartfelt, and often pull-your-leg funny. Grisman and Garcia play with and off each other beautifully.
The musical skill here is extremely high, but feels unforced and simple.
For example, listen to the song "Arkansas Traveller" about an encounter between a city slicker and a country bumpkin:
Slicker: Well, hello stranger.
Bumpkin: Why, hello stranger!
Slicker: Yer corn looks awful little and yeller.
Bumpkin: I planted the little and yeller kind.
[cue duet]
Listen to the banjo and mandolin duet of turkey in the straw; the playing is quite intricate and beautiful.
What's right about this tape: it entertains and engages without once stooping to dull playing or insincere, tired singing. Unlike Raffi, for example, this tape never feels like an act.
Recommended for any kid. Also, any adult who likes good acoustic or folk guitar. This is a tape I play all the time, whether or not kids are around.
* Please, no hate mail from all 15 of you adult Raffi fans. I know the lyrics to Baby Beluga and I'm not afraid to use them.

Uncle Jerry, Uncle David 30 May 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
The late Jerry Garcia, lead guitarist for The Grateful Dead, was never known for the kind of upbeat vocals typically associated with children's music. Still, this sincere album offers a very appealing assortment of toe-tapping American folk tunes whose simple lyrics and old-fashioned harmonies appeal to the kid in all of us. "Uncle Jerry's" acoustic guitar picking is the perfect companion to David Grisman's plucky banjo and marvelous mandolin. The album's selections evoke a summer jam session on your porch, where friends join in at times with fiddle, harmonica--and sometimes piano. (Ok, ok, so the piano wouldn't exactly fit on the porch.) The album closes with a heartfelt rendition of the melancholy river song, Shenandoah, shyly sung by Garcia ("Away, I'm bound away, across the wide Missouri...") This sailor's worksong melts gracefully into Brahm's lullaby with a radiant string assemble lead by Grisman's brilliant mandolin, making for a very sweet sign-off.

for kids of all ages 24 Feb. 2004
By Matt Greer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is a great album. It's a whole lot of fun. It's really just Jerry and Dave doing a bunch of kids songs. I don't have any kids so I can't really tell you how well this goes over with little ones; but then that should also tell you how nice this album is for adults.
This album features the bluegrass, twangy sound that Garcia and Grisman became known for. It's really no different there. But unlike just about all their other albums, this one you can sing along really loud and have a blast doing it. Good stuff.

Uncle Jerry and Uncle Dave over for a visit... 20 July 2000
By Eddie Finn - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is a truly special recording. David Grisman and Jerry Garcia pick their acoustic way through a tasteful selection of children's classics, including a humorous 'Arkansas Traveler', a rousing 'Ain't No Bugs on Me', a rollicking Teddy Bear's Picnic', and a soothingly sleepy lullaby, 'Shenandoah'. A must-have for acoustic folk-style musicians, though enjoyable for just about anybody, this one comes to you with excellent production values and really neat cover art (wish I could find a print suitable for framing).
While you're at it, check out other Grisman/Garcia CD's for equally excellent music and production ('Shady Grove', 'The Pizza Tapes'), or Woody Guthrie's classic 'Songs to Grow On', perhaps the greatest children's album ever.

One of my all time favorite albums! 30 May 1999
By M. Thakery - Published on
Format: Audio CD
My CD collection is nearing the 1,000 mark, but there are a few discs that you can almost always find in my car or at my work. . . This is one of them. I'm not a big DEAD fan (don't hurt me), but Garcia and Grisman really struck a chord with me on this album.
It was originally given to me by a friend that REALLY didn't like folk music and bought it because Garcia's name was on it. What a great album to get!! All the songs are SUPER tastefully done, but as the title implies, adults will enjoy these tunes as much as anyone!
Really groovin' little disc!
