About the Artist

33 top quality musicians create a masterpiece. This product was initially developed to create a better quality of musical experience for the Producers own children. This album contains recorded performances from high-class musicians from many different backgrounds and styles including the worlds of Rock 'n' Roll, Indie, Pop, Modern, Bluegrass, Irish Folk, Blues and Rock-a-Billy. Musicians from the ever popular 'Tribute Genre' were invited to perform including musicians from Beatles, Kinks, Pink Floyd, Whitesnake and Amy Winehouse tribute bands. Singer-Song writers from original bands including The Andy Whittle Band, Lucca and My Mate Kate provided fresh performances as well as two original and brand new lullabies plus we were very honoured to have three members of Billy Fury's original backing band 'Fury's Tornadoes' providing performances! Finally, many of the albums orchestral arrangements were undertaken by a serious classical arranger and a pipe organist! All of these skills bring together many flavours of various types of music all performed by the best musicians available.

5.0 out of 5 stars By far the best nursery rhymes I've heard 18 April 2010
Format:Audio CD
I'm not one to write reviews (although I do read them very often). This CD is so exceptionally good though that I've decided to write my first one ever.

I got this CD for my 6 month old son for christmas and since then (it's April now) it's hardly been removed from the CD player. I'm a keen musician myself and so I was looking for a good quality recording of nursery rhymes really for myself as a reminder of the tunes and words so that I could re-learn them and sing them to him with the guitar. I went through quite a few other offerings before I encountered this one and was very disappointed with the general quality of everything I heard. Hearing this collection was like an epiphany! The richness of the production and the musical performances draws you in until you actually sometimes forget that you're listening to music for small children. The arrangements are reminiscent of classic pop hits and sometimes its quite easy to spot a borrowed riff or sound. Each track has its own musical identity and like any classic album can stand to be played over and over without boredom or fatigue setting in. I usually put it on at least a couple of times a week and each time my son and I have great fun while it plays.

My one regret about this CD is that I managed to lose the case containing the 2nd CD on Christmas day. It must have accidentally got thrown out with the wrapping paper. I did listen to the 2nd CD once before I lost it though and remember it being just as good as the first. I also remember reading the sleeve notes and was pleasantly surprised to see that it was produced in Nottingham which is the place I'm from.

I highly recommend this CD and congratulate the producers and musicians who made it.

5.0 out of 5 stars FOR THE YOUNG AND OLD!!! 6 Sep 2009
Format:Audio CD
I listened to the cd expecting it to be another childrens selection of songs that only they would appreciate and we adults would cringe at but found to my surprise that the Nursery Rhyme Collection was on two levels, where adults and children alike could appreciate the brilliant arrangements and fun style songs. My 12 year old grandchild wants to download it to her ipod!!!I want to play it my car when there are no children around.My eighty five year old mother (who has dementia)loves singing along to it. What greater testiment could this music be given.

5.0 out of 5 stars Relief! 16 Nov 2012
By Kerry
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
To any parent who is a music lover, I highly recommend this CD! I'd banned regular children's CDs from the car as I couldn't listen to any more fake instruments or bland and boring renditions of popular songs. I read reviews of this CD and thought I'd give it a go. Wow! The first time we listened, I nearly cried with relief! It was so refreshing to hear these unique renditions of popular children's songs. The musical scores are written as 'real' music ie there's mood, variation, style,complexities of rhythm, real instruments and people who can really sing! I love the treatments of the first songs on Vol 1. Unfortunately, Vol 2 is a bit bland but it's well worth buying the collection just for Vol 1.

5.0 out of 5 stars invaluable for car journeys! 4 Oct 2011
By becs
Format:Audio CD
Fantastic CD, really lively and different music genres so even though it's nursery rhymes it's still ok for adults in the car! We got stuck in an hour traffic jam and this cd was priceless for everyones sanity! We use at home when my little 5 month old is a bit grumpy it works a treat especially when i do the actions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best nursery rhymes CD I've ever heard... 28 Aug 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
While we were visiting friends and family in the UK recently, we had a LOT of long car journeys... I asked my Dad for this as a belated birthday present for my 17 month old daughter, and it's the best nursery rhymes CD I think I've ever heard! A bunch of "real" musicians got together to make a collection that also takes parents into consideration - my husband (bit of a traditionalist! ;D) took a few listens to warm up to it, but I loved it right away. My daughter adores it; we dance to it like maniacs and she asks for "More! More!" after every song!

There are rock versions of 'Humpty Dumpty' and 'My Bonnie Lies Over The Ocean' (our favourite!), a neat segue from 'Ten Green Bottles' into 'Wind The Bobbin Up' and back again, a reggae influenced 'What Shall We Do With A Grumpy Pirate?', blues, soul, medieval madrigal, waltzes, riffs that sound distinctly like The Beatles' "Get Back', The Damned's 'Eloise'... just about every musical style you can think of. And it's divided into four sections - Dance, Play, Learn and Sleep. It's also nice to see a few songs that I haven't found on others CDs - I've sung 'Hush Little Baby' to her since she was born, but it's very rare to find it in a collection.

I regularly catch myself singing these versions - I really can't recommend it highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely FAB!!! 19 Jun 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I purchased this CD for my niece who is 4 years old. After rave reviews from my brother and the confession that he and his wife have often listened to the cd on their own after Libby has gone to bed, I thought I'd give it a listen myself.
What a fantastic compilation of songs from an extremely proficient bunch of musicians.
The thought that has gone into the arrangements certainly has something for all age groups.
Little Libby used to be a massive Pepper Pig fan and you could hardly get her away from the TV. There's a new kid on the block though in the form of the sing along band as the cd is hardly ever off.
I would say this is a must buy for all parents with young children who would like to give them a real introduction to music through this splendid nursery rhyme compilation.
Will be buying the 2nd one soon!!
