This compact disc is where it all began! Ralph Covert's
fresh approach to making music for kids was playing the same great indie pop-rock he did with The Bad Examples
but with subject matter and lyrics that children love.
The debut children's compact disc (which we'll refer to as RW1) features 18 songs including "Me And My Animal Friends" (as featured on Playhouse Disney),"Freddy Bear The Teddy Bear" (aka "Chocolate Cake") and "All My Colors." There are a dozen originals plus some oldies including a take on "Ragtime Cowboy Joe" (which also features Ralph's father on vocals) and KC & The Sunshine Band's classic disco transformed into "Take A Little Nap."
The supporting cast of musicians include such luminaries as Grammy-nominated jazz vocalist Kurt Elling, bassist Pickles Piekarski (Bad Examples, John Prine), harmonica player Corky Siegel (Siegel-Schwall Blues Band), and drummer Matt Walker (Smashing Pumpkins, Filter). This album is now on Disney Sound.
