Album Notes
The poems are immortal, the music is beautiful, the cd is a must-have for any lover of J.W. Riley or lover of modern folk.
Ron Catt has been true to the source. Not one word of Riley's poetry has been changed.
With the help of keyboardist Jimmy Horowitz (Rod Stewart, Air Supply) and multi-instumentalist Robin Lamble (Al Stewart, Spencer Davis) Ron has written and recorded musical versions of Riley's poems which are melodic and true to the spirit of Riley's work.
Teachers and parents take note. Ron Catt's "The Tree Toad" provides children with an appealing slice of American cultural heritage, and a window into our country's past. The songs are rich with childhood dreams and imagination. James Whitcomb Riley would be pleased with Ron Catt's contribution to the preservation of an American legacy.
