Putumayo Kids presents a tribute to the early history of rock & roll with Rock & Roll Playground. Kids of all ages can shake, rattle and roll to music by a stellar group of established and up-and-coming artists. A charmingly illustrated read-aloud booklet also accompanies the CD, with notes about the history of rock & roll and the story of each song. The songs on Rock & Roll Playground were recorded in recent years but were inspired by the evolution of the genre. Grammy® Award winners Dan Zanes and Friends invite you to bug and twist on the song Lets Shake, while rockabilly royalty Rosie Flores churns out feverish licks on This Little Girls Gone Rockin. Grammy Award winner Taj Mahal and Linda Tillery lend an infectious Bo Diddley beat to Willie and The Hand Jive, and noted singer-songwriter Peter Himmelman delivers a classic rock performance on Little Bitty Baby. Grammy Award winner Bill Harley sings about a slumbering teenage brother in Sleep the Whole Day Through and Uncle Rock performs a blues-infused cover of the Steppenwolf classic Magic Carpet Ride.
