This is Joel Frankel
's second kids' music album with all the lyrics to all 14 songs included in the CD booklet. Irish folk singer Kathy Cowan
guests on two songs. Joel's whimsical and sometimes silly tunes are loved by toddlers through the Kindgarten crowd.
Billboard Magazine 's Child's Play column praised I Can't Sit Still upon its initial release in 1995 as " ...one of the most delightful, original cassettes we have come across in recent times. "
Publisher's Weekly opined, "...a winning combination of intelligent, plain lyrics and engaging music. In addition to guitar and keyboards, cat purrs, kazoo, spoons and fiddles augment the music. The quirkiness and simplicity of Frankel's songs make this an ideal listening experience. "
