Evaluation comments from our Music Judge:
“For those unfamiliar with Sharon, Lois & Bram, this trio was among the biggest and best acts in children’s music during the 80s and 90s. This album, their first release of new material in over 20 years, wonderfully reveals what made Sharon, Lois & Bram so popular. Covering the years 1989-1995, these previously unreleased live tracks showcase the magical way that they combined simple, kid-friendly songs with a gentle sense of humor and a natural ease with entertaining children. The 20+ songs include their signature tunes like “One Elephant” and “Skinnamarink” along with well-known traditional numbers, such as “She’ll Be Coming Around The Mountain” and “Old King Cole.” The Canada-based trio also demonstrate their knack for putting together some amusing medleys (“The Alphabet Song/ABC Jig” and “The Summertime Fly Medley: Flea Fly Mosquito/Shoo Fly Don’t Bother Me/Shoo-Fly Pie” are two examples). Besides displaying SL&B’s pure joy for entertaining youngsters, these live performances also hold a timeless quality that will engage little ones today (while provoking nostalgia with adult listeners). Additional praise should be given to how seamlessly this set of songs have been sewn together; it sounds like you are listening to one concert and not recordings coming from a variety of shows.”
