Album Notes

5 of the 10 songs on the album come from our books; this is not your grandfather's children's music!

With guitar work by Jim Babjak of The Smithereens, and featuring The Grip Weeds Kurt Reil on drums with all three of us co-producing, ONE SIZE FITS ALL is a fresh new take on children's music - it is NOT the type you have heard before; it is respectful of a child's intelligence, great rock & roll, and a terrific good time! Parents will love it as much as kids.

Professional Reviews

Fred Koch, Chicago Parent Magazine, February, 2001:
My first pick is One Size Fits All by Danny Adlerman (Kids At Our House Records, 2000). I have a low tolerance for children's artists who feel that the sweeter and more syrupy they come across, the better. From the first moments of One Size Fits All, I knew that isn't Adlerman's approach. The first cut, "Africa Calling," grabs you right away with it's jungle animal sound effects and keeps your attention throughout with a musical arrangement reminiscent of Paul Simon's "Graceland."

Five of the 10 songs on this album are musical adaptations of picture books written by Danny and/or his wife, Kim (under the pen name of Kin Eagle). I have been a fan of Kin Eagle's books for a long time, and was excited to see some of them come to life musically. Danny and Kim favor starting with a traditional rhyme or song and expanding the story line. On One Size Fits All they have included fine musical arrangements of "It's Raining, It's Pouring," "Hey, Diddle Diddle" and "Humpty Dumpty." But I like "Rub a Dub Dub" best. It's a hilarious tale of the famous three from the tub who were sent out by their wives to snag some dinner. After quite a few mishaps, they return feeling rather silly and vowing not to tell their wives why. The listener, of course, hears the whole story.

"How Much Wood Could A Woodchuck Chuck?" is another creative song built around a rhyme. The musical arrangement has a Grateful Dead feel, as Danny sings 12 different tongue (in cheek) twisters including, "How much straw could a strawberry bury if a strawberry could bury straw?" and my favorite, "How much chi could a cheetah tie if a cheetah could tai-chi?" One Size Fits All is brimming with clever songs sure to be enjoyed by children and adults alike.

Vendetta Thornton, entertainment editor, SimplyFamily.com:
"One Size Fits All" by Daniel Adlerman and friends is one CD you will want to add to your child's list of music. From the very beginning of the CD, I was transformed by the great beats into a land far away. The beats are warm and fun and put you in the mindset of the ever popular "Lion King" and invite you and your kids to dance and hop around.

The songs and lyrics are easy to follow along with and encourage learning, this can be heard in songs such as "Surfing the Net" and the known "Library Song". One Size Fits All- also reintroduces some old classics nursery rhymes like "Rub A Dub Dub", "It's Raining It's Pouring" and "Hey Diddle Diddle". The theme on this CD is a great way to incorporate your child's favorite bedtime story with music. Music is one of the many talents of Mr. Adlerman, he is also an accomplished and noted children's author. His talent and dedication are evident in the renowned "Africa Calling". The layout and style of this book promotes reading to the youngest of children.

The images and illustration in Africa Calling are a wonderful mix of imagery and nature. The colors are so bright and brilliant they will keep little one's fixated in Africa. We can expect more of the same in the upcoming release of "The Cool Black Pool". To learn more about these and other works of Mr. Adlerman please email bookkids@aol.com.

Parenting Magazine, June/July, 2001:
Children young and old will jam to these ten summery feel-good anthems, including original compositions like the beachy Surfin' the Net and The Library Song and boisterous versions of nursery rhymes, such as Rub a Dub Dub and Humpty Dumpty.

WXPN's Kathy O'Connell, MetroKids, September 2001
When I was a kid, preschool didn't exist, so my first taste of school was not until kindergarten. At that early age, I envied the older kids as they trekked to school each day. How I longed to join the lunchbox and pencil case set! Today's younger kids in that same mindset will enjoy meeting Danny Adlerman & Friends, whose One Size Fits All CD includes school-friendly tunes like "The Library Song" and "School Bus Driver." His "Surfin' the Net" has a nifty Beach Boys sound that will prolong the summer mood into autumn's leafy mists. And youngsters will love twisting their tongues around the song "How Much Wood." This is an ideal album for the baby of the family who won't be joining siblings in school for another year. Like so many kids' musicians, Adlerman has produced his own CD (with some help from his friends).

Finally, one that the Parents Enjoy
Our whole family loves this CD. My husband and I find ourselves singing along -- and happy about it. We gave it out as a birthday party favor last year and received rave reviews from all of our adult friends (and the kids are guaranteed to like it too!) I can't wait for Danny's next album.

Colleen Seig

If you're looking for a cd that won't send you as a parent screaming from the room when your kids are listening, this is it. I find myself singing right along to the varied, catchy tunes that not only delight my 3 year old but the 6 year old as well. I Give them out as birthday presents,and all the parents are greatful. Can't wait to hear more from this funny and talented artist.
