Album Notes
“terrific...Richard has a tremendous ability for generating catchy guitar riffs” Cool Tunes For Kids

Winner 2008 Zooglobble Kid Vid Tournament ("Cheese" video)

Mr Richard’s third album of whimsical musings for dancing kids and hip parents has songs that swirl in a salad mix of styles. “Some of my favorite records are the ones that surprise you with each tune,” says Richard, “like the White Album, Physical Graffiti, and The Replacements’ Hootenanny...and Queen were masters of that!” Polka Dot Puzzle features back-porch folk, ringing pop-rock, stomping klezmer, sunny calypso, New Orleans-style funk and Creedence-thumping swamp rock, all making up the pieces of this musical puzzle.

Richard created Polka Dot Puzzle with longtime musical cohorts Matt McWhirter and Brandon Bingham, and Lunch Money’s Molly Ledford lends her lovely voice to the soaring “Butterfly Day”. The horn-driven “Bubble Bath” will have you dancing in the tub, “Treehouse” will send you out for scrap lumber, and “Pots N’ Pans” will reduce your kitchen to rubble!

The Orlando Sentinel calls Mr Richard “music to our ears” and Zooglobble says Richard’s “got a sly ear for kids’ (and parental) frustrations especially”. Hear why Parenting and Cookie featured previous Mr Richard albums in their magazines, and why parents often confess to listening to his music even when the kids aren’t around!

This is a seriously fun favorite of Richard's work to date (although I will always, always love Airplane Jane). In the past I didn't listen to his songs much on CD, we stuck to the live shows, b/c as every mom in Orlando knows...Mr. Richard is a genius at a live show. But, Polka Dot Puzzle (PDP) has been in steady rotation for a month now...and (confession time) I've even listened to it once or twice when my kid was NOT in the car with me. What is interesting about PDP is that it really has something for adults and kids. There are songs I just love: Pots and Pans being my favorite, followed by Bubble Bath (I defy you not to shake your rump a bit to that tune) and the darling Butterfly Day. The words to these songs are definitely for kids, but take the words away and there are some smart, rocking tunes here. The songs I'm not as fond of (Pooch Smooch and Bananas) are my kid's absolute favorites b/c they really are great, silly kid songs. The only thing I can say on the down side is that the album seems a bit short...I'd have liked a few extra tracks. Otherwise...LOVE IT. Can't wait to see Mr. Richard perform these live...although I hope he'll toss an Airplane Jane in a set once in awhile...homage to the "old school" fans, if you will. :O) Rock on, Mr. Richard!

Polka Dot Puzzle Rocks
We LOVE Mr. Richard! We've memorized the words of nearly every song on both of his previous albums (Tummy Talk and Might As Well Sing), and we're already working on every work of Polka Dot Puzzle. This is a fun album and it is a great collection showcasing Mr. Richard's diverse style. Keep rockin', Mr. Richard! We'll be listening to your albums even after the kids grow up! :-)

Another Gem from Mr. Richard!
Thanks Mr. Richard for making my Christmas shopping easy. All my nieces and nephews love their Mr. Richard CDs. They don't need to say "cheese" for a happy photo, just put on Polka Dot Puzzle and watch the smiles break out. As for me, "Bubble Bath" is the funkiest one I've ever taken!

Katie Keebler mom to Elizabeth-8 and Stephanie-3

We Love the new album!
We have been Mr. Richard fans for a while. We really like this new album. It is just as fun as the rest of the albums. My kids really like the new song Bubble Bath! Mr. Richard's music makes you want to get up and dance, oh yeah, the kids like to dance, too!

Spencer and Isabella's mommy

We love Polka Dot Puzzle
My kids have not stopped tapping their feet since they got this CD for Christmas! My one year old loves laughing with the kids in Pooch Smooch and my four year old loves the banana song!!! My favorite is definitely the Butterfly Day song...very beautiful. What a wonderful collection of songs that the whole family will love!

Jameson-3 & Luke's-1 Mom

We love Mr. Richard's Polka Dot Puzzle
The 1st words out of Jameson's mouth upon being buckled into the car are, 'Mr. Richard. . . PLEEEEASSSE!!!!". We love all of your cd's, but this one is the first one that Jameson's has sung the words to. His absolute favorite song is Woo Woo Truck. We can't wait to hear it live!

Bryson's Mom ~ Stacy

We Highly Recommend Purchasing This CD!
If you aren't familiar with Mr. Richard and his tunes, get ready to become addicted! My son absolutely loves all of Mr. Richard's cds - and I can honestly say I do too!! His songs are very catchy - we listen to them pretty much non stop! Bryson's favorites are Cheese, Bananas, Pooch Smooch and the So Long Song. My favorites are The Hey Hey Song, Treehouse, Cheese & Butterfly Day. Listening to Mr. Richard's songs are great way to connect and have fun being silly with your child. :)
