What was the first music that you ever loved as a child? Can you picture the cassette? Record? CD?
Light In The Attic Records has created a special introduction to the world of the vinyl record, just for kids. This children's compilation is called This Record Belongs To ________ (the record's owner gets to write his/her name in the blank!).
This Record Belongs To______ is the antidote to your standard kids' compilations. You won't find boy bands, princesses, or purple dinosaurs here. Instead the record consists of two halves — an upbeat side for daytime dancin' and a mellow side for bedtime lullabies. Among the many gems featured include songs from Carole King, Woody Guthrie, Donovan, Harry Nilsson, Jerry Garcia, Nina Simone, Kermit The Frog and more.
Inspired by the classic Little Golden Books Series and Sesame Street's In Harmony albums, This Record Belongs To ______ stems from a love of music, reading, and a passion for teaching future generations the interactive experience of holding an album in your hands, putting needle to groove, and immersing yourself in the pages of a record's sleeve as the music plays. The compilation was compiled and sequenced by DJ and friend of Light In The Attic, Zach Cowie.
The record is accompanied by an original, full-color storybook illustrated by acclaimed artist, Jess Rotter, which tells the tale of five forest pals who find a mysterious object — a round, flat disc that they proceed to investigate. The animal friends finally solve the mystery and learn how to play a record and let their bodies move to the groove (within the grooves).
