...New Orleans mom Lauren Busch Singer decided to liven up the world of children's music by assembling a bunch of NOLA bands and performers and having them put their personal touches on some kids' classics ... y'know, give those ol' familiar tunes a kick in the pants. So c'mon, ride the ridiculously stanky groove of "Zip A Dee Doo Dah" with Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk, git took to church with Meters' bassist George Porter Jr.'s version of "He's Got the Whole World In His Hands", and feel the swamp creep up yer ankles with The Radiators' "Froggy Went A Courtin'".

Bonerama turn in a great version of Randy Newman's Toy Story classic "You've Got a Friend In Me", and Johnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes' rendition of Dumbo's "When I See an Elephant Fly" outstrips the original while staying pretty faithful to the animated tune. Amanda Shaw & the Cute Guys' cover of "Garden Song" is more country Cajun spice than Crescent City soul, while the most low-key performances happen to be from The Wizard of Oz, as ex-Cowboy Mouth Paul Sanchez teams up with trumpet and guitar for a coffeehouse version of "If I Only Had a Brain" and Theresa Andersson croons "Somewhere Over the Rainbow".

This is a tight group of musicians, not only musically but on a friendship level, as well. You can tell by browsing their websites and myspace pages that most of them know each other, often performing on the same bill, and their camaraderie and their New Orleans pride shine through on every track. Buy several copies for your family, friends, and local libraries!

Produced by Lauren Busch Singer, a mother and music fan, the compilation also features production work by Grammy winner Tracey Freeman, best known for his work on over a dozen Harry Connick Jr. albums, and Steve Alaimo, co-writer and producer of the Allman Brothers "Melissa.” The disc’s choice cuts include Bonerama’s take on “You’ve Got A Friend In Me,” Big Sam’s Funky Nation’s cover of the “Hokey Pokey,” Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk version of “Zip A Dee Doo Dah,” George Porter Jr.’s reworking of “He’s Got the Whole World In His Hands” and Papa Grows Funk’s children’s version of the Beatles’ “Yellow Submarine.” The compilation also features Theresa Andersson, The Radiators, Walter Wolfman Washington and Johnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes, among others. A number of the abovementioned musicians are expected to perform behind the new disc in 2008.
