Album Review

Finding good children's music has become such a dispiriting experience: the stuff on the racks is either a crass product tie-ins, a cheaply produced compilation, a gratingly saccharin moralizing, or all of the above. John Lithgow has single-handedly redeemed the children's music section with this release, Singin' in the Bathtub, which revisits the classic songs that he and his siblings grew up with. It's bright and cheerful enough that kids love it, and even more miraculously, it's clever enough that parents won't mind the wee one's demands of "Again!" Musically, it's somewhere between Tom Lehrer, Danny Kaye, and Cab Calloway, which is to say that it's all over the map, and wonderfully so. There's no scrimping on production values, either — perfectly sunny big band backings on "Everybody Eats When They Come to My House," wry cocktail party piano on "I'm a Gnu," and a hauntingly beautiful children's choir on "Inchworm."

Great with the kids

The children's response to this album is absolutely positive. Unlike the deragatory rhymes of snoopdeezy, Lithgow teaches messages of love and fun. Thank you for existing Sincerely, Pimpdiz in the heezy

John Lithgow is Amazing!

I was given this album on tape as a child, and I still love these songs. I get them stuck in my head, and end up singing them for days at a time. They're wonderful!

Love it!

My five children love this CD!! It has been one of their favorites for years, and it still makes us all laugh. It also makes you want to sing along! I don't think they will ever outgrow it. We all highly recommend it. Thanks!
