Let All the Children Boogie: A Tribute to David Bowie

Performed by Various Artists. CD. Approx. 68 min. Spare the Rock Records. 2016. $11.99.
K Up—This collection of 20 songs is dedicated to the music and artistry of David Bowie and plays like a greatest hits album. Everything is included here, from "Fashion" to "Modern Love" to "Ziggy Stardust" to "Space Oddity." Some of the artists do covers that closely follow the originals, such as "Let's Dance," performed by Antibalas, while others put their own spin on things, as Lloyd Miller and Dean Jones do on their children's toy instrument—heavy version of "V-2 Schneider." Each song is performed by different artists, including well-known children's musicians Sonia de Los Santos, Elena Moon Park, Justin Roberts and the Not Ready for Naptime Players, Red Yarn, and Elizabeth Mitchell.
VERDICT This album is a great option for parents who are looking for "grown-up" music to enjoy as a family.
