I'm obviously biased when it comes to Go Waggaloo, the kids music album from Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Irion, since I have liner notes in the release. But I like the way this slickly produced electronic press kit has the occasional sound of Sarah Lee and Johnny's kids screeching in the background. If you like the sound of the clips (the songs, or the kids) in the piece below, you can go to Folkways' album page and preorder the album, which will not only get you the album early (it'll ship around Oct. 1, nearly a month before it's officially released), but also, if you're one of the first 100 pre-orders, get you an autographed copy.
But there's more...
Go Waggaloo features some guest spots from Pete Seeger. So I'm using that as a gratuitous excuse to post some video from a benefit concert he gave with Sarah Lee and Johnny and others in San Francisco recently. Listen to the way he leads the crowd in "Goodnight, Irene." Pretty awesome.
