Album Review

If a musician composes and performs children's songs for a living, it's probably really hard to convince her friends that she has had a hard day. Who, after all, will sympathize with the difficulties encountered in writing "Talkin' to My Teddy?" Or empathize with a diatribe about the poor quality of the sound system at Sherwood Elementary? Probably no one, but Cathy Fink & Marcy Marxer keep their childish noses to the grindstone nonetheless. Indeed, their friends must have at least been impressed that this songwriting team garnered Grammy nominations for Blanket Full of Dreams and Pillow Full of Wishes. Now they have returned with the final entry in their bedtime trilogy, Pocket Full of Stardust. The folk songs presented here are catchy, simple, and straightforward. A banjo and guitar offer a bouncy backdrop to "Who's Been Sleepin' in My Bed," while a quiet electric guitar graces "I Got Pajamas." There are also a number of gentle lullabies, including Marxer's "Wish for Tomorrow" and Fink's title cut. No matter how good this album is, though, it's doubtful that Pocket Full of Stardust will convince children to go to bed when they're told to do so. Still, if a child likes the album enough, perhaps it can be withheld to induce the proper behavior. ~ Ronnie D. Lankford Jr., Rovi

I found this album quite by mistake; I was looking for something with celestrial themes with a tinge of New Age / World about it, something peaceful and pleasant. Intrigued by the song title, "Counting Stars / Every Little Star," I clicked and listened to the preview. The song made me feel good, and it made me smile. So, I tried other song previews and decided that this album was worth getting. The music is soft, sweet, and uplifting...but then it is a children's album. Maybe, the music speaks to the child in all of us! Have a listen! :D

Cathy Fink may be best known for the many children's albums she has recorded over the years, but she is also a key figure in feminist-oriented folk and country music. Born and raised in Baltimore, she got her professional start in 1973 at the Yellow Door coffeehouse in Montreal, at the height of the folk revival. There she became well-known for her excellent banjo and guitar playing, as well as her yodeling. The following year she debuted on the CBC and has since played in every major North American...
