Album Review

This foot-tapping, finger-snapping collection is done with a fresh approach. Tom brings humor and imagination to children in Billy the Squid. Parents will be thrilled with this variety of amusing, thought-provoking songs that they, too, can enjoy even after listening for the 20th time. Chapin plays the guitar and banjo throughout the album, while Roseanne Cash and Branford Marsalis join him on the rousing selection "All of My Friends."
