Putumayo Kids presents Acoustic Dreamland, a soothing collection of songs for bedtime and relaxation. Celebrated singer-songwriters perform unplugged music to lull children to sleep and for adults to unwind to. The CD includes songs originally recorded by the Allman Brothers, James Taylor, Wilco and Mary Chapin Carpenter, among others. A read-aloud, mini storybook that parents can share with their children at bedtime accompanies the CD.
Veteran folk musician Lucy Kaplansky opens the CD with a sweet rendition of Mary Chapin Carpenter's lovely lullaby "Dreamland." The lyrics to this song are featured in the enclosed booklet, charmingly illustrated by British artist Nicola Heindl, whose work appears on all Putumayo CDs. The collection features Parents' Choice award-winner Victor Johnson's reassuring "Everything Is Going To Be Alright," while widely acclaimed Smithsonian/Folkways children's recording artist Elizabeth Mitchell lends her beautiful voice to the Allman Brothers' "Blue Sky." William Fitzsimmons gently encourages "You Can Close Your Eyes" (James Taylor) and Kesang Marstrand's enchanting vocals float "In the Land of Dreams."
