Music for kids and grownups

Dec 7, 12:39 AM · from the mouth of Andy

First, an NPR story about kids music that grownups will also like, with a link to a blog on the subject called Zooglobble. My favorite bandname of those profiled in the story: the Wee Hairy Beasties. You’ll notice, they’re signed to Bloodshot Records!

Also, my favorite teacher colleague today sent me a link to some weird foreign site that has a large collection of Beatles videos from their entire career. Check out especially “Yer Blues” performed with John Lennon singing, Mitch Mitchell on drums, Eric Clapton on Guitar, and Keith Richards on bass!

    That Beatles archive is incredible! What an awesome resource! I checked out “Yer Blues”... wow. I wasn’t expecting Keith Richards to look even MORE like a skeleton then than he does now!! The man did some serious drugs. Also, watching John Lennon sing in that song reminded me a bit of Jack White of The White Stripes / The Raconteurs.

    It’s fun to watch as The Beatles (and in effect mainstream music in general) transform from a bunch of clean-cut nice boys in the early 60’s to a bunch of psychedelic long-hairs in the late 60’s. Pretty wild.

    Loved the story about kids’ music too. I listened to a song by Johnny Cash about Dinosaurs. Above his album, it said “Folsom Preschool Blues”. Excellent.

    Andy, we received our copy of the Wee Hairy Beasties album yesterday. It’s great!! Thank you so much!! I listened to the NPR story again for a refresher… I didn’t realize that the band consists of a bunch of punk rockers. The reviewer even goes as far as to say that children’s music is the new punk rock.

    So thanks again! I’m sure at least two generations of Nevi (Jess’s made-up pluralization of Nevins) will enjoy this!
