5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding album for children of all ages, 20 April 2003

This review is from: The Bottle Let Me Down (Audio CD)
It seems an unlikely idea - alternative country singers getting together to do a children’s album – but it works brilliantly.
Rosie Flores opens the album in great style with her cover of the classic song Red red robin. It sets the tone of the album, which is almost relentlessly upbeat, fun music, with just the occasional slow song like It’s not easy being green, performed by Rex Hobart and the misery boys. Yes, this album is occasionally slightly silly, but nothing to make you squirm or run away from.
Apart from Red red robin, perhaps the most famous songs here are Camptown races (done as an instrumental), I am my own Grandpa (sung here by the Asylum street spankers), Three billy goats gruff (narrated by Carolyn Mark) and The fox (sung by the Waco brothers). Snowball is a new song by the Handsome family, set to the tune of the classic train song Wabash Cannonball. Likewise, On top of spaghetti, with new lyrics sung by Jane Baxter Miller, uses the music from On top of Old Smokey.
Many of the other songs are completely new, specially written for this project. All the contributors clearly enjoyed themselves. Buy this album and join in the fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars not let down at all, 5 Dec 2009

This review is from: The Bottle Let Me Down (Audio CD)
Brilliant. All my kids - aged 8, 5 and 18 months LOVE it. Their favourite - Don't Wipe Your Face on Your Shirt. My favourite - Godfrey, the one about the 'sickly, unemployed, amateur children's magician'. Genius.

5.0 out of 5 stars When you're bored of the usual..., 21 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Bottle Let Me Down: Songs For Bumpy Wagon Rides (MP3 Download)
A bit of edge, a bit un-PC (Godfrey the amateur magician comes to mind), it's a good alternative to endless renditions of Row Your Boat. The songs are so catchy they stick in your head, which is great for kids but slightly annoying at times for me.
