Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Songs for the Young at Heart: Limited Edition/+Book (Audio CD)
I'm a Tindersticks fan, so I knew what to expect from this album. As the title suggests this is an album aimed at children - or at those who wish they were still children - and is a collection of songs like "Puff The Magic Dragon" sung by the likes of Bonnie "Prince" Billy, Cerys Matthews, Stuart Staples and so on. Jarvis Cocker reads a story, the words of which are printed in the simply gorgeous book which is effectively the case for the CD.
As an album it is ok, no more, no less. I listened to it once, smiled, and then looked through the book a few times. It looks nice on my shelf, but I doubt I'll listen to it again. Maybe if I had kids it would never be off the stereo...
