ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Sensitive, humorous, loving, sassy, audacious and wonderful" are all words reviewers use to describe the children's album, "Land of the Diamond Sun". Written and produced by veteran songwriters, Steve and Stephanie Gold, this album sweeps listeners away on a joyously funny, compassionate (and very danceable) journey through life and the sometimes difficult lessons that it has to offer. Many different artists perform in many different styles of music, produced with a sophistication not often heard in children's music. "Land of the Diamond Sun" is recommended for bright, high-spirited children ages 5-11, as well as their parents and teachers.

QUOTES & REVIEWS:

"Sesame Street Meets 'Earth, Wind & Fire'" New Jersey Elementary Educator

"The production quality is top-notch with winning performances by all musicians. Overall, a nice, solid product." School Library Journal

"Real Music for Real Kids" Phoenix Magazine

"Land of the Diamond Sun "Songs In the Key of Life....Musical messages on how to deal with life's everyday pressures. Rock, country, jazz and rap music provide uplifting, positive lessons for children ages 6-11." Barbara Wood, Los Angeles Daily News

"For Kids who've outgrown the Chipmunks and Joanie Bartels but aren't quite ready for Stone Temple Pilots, 'Land of the Diamond Sun' deserves a listen. Arrangements have a sophistication not often heard in children's music." Deborah Ross, Phoenix Gazette

"Words that teach family values are music to parent's ears, and songs may be the way to get children to listen. That's the idea behind a new album, 'Land of the Diamond Sun.'... The focus on values rather than academics is one element that sets 'Land of the Diamond Sun' apart from many other children's records." The ARIZONA SCHOOL BOARD ASSOCIATION JOURNAL

'Land of the Diamond Sun' "a recording of 13 songs that present positive values with up-to-date rhythms and humorous lyrics. The melodies represent a variety of musical genres" National Music Educator's Journal

"Land of the Diamond Sun" is an album of 13 refreshing songs for kids, written and produced by veteran songwriters with performers singing the tunes. The uplifting lyrics don't sound contrived because of the topics; adversities typical of children 6-11 include getting mad, doing chores, obeying parents, being different, lying and hitting. The subjects range from the ridiculous to the sublime. Adults will enjoy listening to this album along with their children." The ARIZONA SCHOOL BOARD ASSOCIATION JOURNAL

"For children here are 13 delightful songs they can sing along with and learn from. The compositions are humorous, educational, sensitive, compassionate, fun explorations into life and learning to come from a love center when relating to others. This is a wonderful tape for teaching children compassion, understanding and caring in a fun way. Highly recommended for parents and teachers of children 4-12 years old." OMEGA NEW AGE REVIEW

Silly yet intelligent, variety of musical styles, vivid imagery
Recommended to me by an adult who appreciates it as much or more than her child. I do not yet have a child but still enjoy it, especially The Smile Billionaire. Very uplifting!

This CD has been with me all my life. It brings back only the best of memories and I still listen to it while in the car or on the computer at home. The songs just bring a smile to my face. It doesnt matter what mood your in, this CD will pick you right up. It is overall the best CD you can give your kids!
