Ever wish you could bring back those days of innocence for YOUR kids and grandkids?
I am quite happy to tell you that you CAN!
Kiddo and I recently got the chance to review their new Golden Record: Celebrity Series: The Magic Continues cd (just released THIS week) It has 20 classic songs (like Yankee Doodle Dandy, Who's Afraid of the Big bad Wolf and Pop Goes the Weasel) and stories (like Rapunzel, The Little Engine That Could and Puss in Boots), that combine the beautifully orchestrated original recordings, digitally restored with the talent of today’s biggest and brightest stars. They bring back the recordings of the 50s and 60s that we all loved! It is so wonderful to hear orchestrated, REAL music, versus the synthesized and digitized modern music! And best yet? Tony Shimkin, award winning music producer, and son of original Golden Record music producer, Arthur Shimkin, is carrying on his father's legacy with this new series! The story tellers include Ed Asner, Susan Sarandon, Alicia Silverstone (Kiddo's favorite!), Cheryl Hines, and Didi Conn! Check out the video preview:
We've always sang the old classics to Kiddo and told her classic tales and stories, so it was great for her to hear them in a version that I could tell her I grew up with! And I know that I can put on the cd and walk out of the room and have NO worries about what she may be hearing! We highly recommend it! It would be a great Christmas stocking present! The cd is available online at Amazon, iTunes, via Golden Records, and locally exclusively at Wal-Mart.
And there is great news- Golden Records has 3 other editions available:
- Timeless Golden Records Edition 1- coming out September 18th
- Timless Golden Records, Edition 2- also coming out September 18th
- Spooky Halloween Hits is coming out October 2nd
- Very Special Christmas Golden Records- coming out on October 16th
You can sign up on the Golden Records website and become a Golden Member, which gives you access to games, free music, contests and learning activities, besides early previews of upcoming records!
And lucky you, Golden Records is offering one lucky BTHM reader their own cd of Golden Record: Celebrity Series: The Magic Continues, like we reviewed! We know the lucky winner will love it as much as we did!
