Little Seed wins a Parents Choice Gold Award!

Little Seed wins a Parents Gold Award!

From Parents Choice :

“Elizabeth Mitchell’s light, effortless soprano and natural warmth shine on her latest release Little Seed. On this compilation album, Mitchell’s talents match the simplicity of the timeless songs by Woody Guthrie, who spun their melodies, lyrics and wordplay with the first-hand knowledge of a father’s heart and a child’s wonder. “Rattle rattle rattle/skiddle my skaddle” (“Rattle My Rattle”), “My pony runs to the music and drums/Round and round and round” (“Merry-Go-Round”), “I’m a little baby a few days old/I’m a little snick-snack some days old” (“One Day Old”)-the nonsense words have a joyful rubber ball bounce, while the songs overall evoke play and family togetherness in a gentler world without electronic distractions. No museum pieces, Guthrie’s songs are alive and thriving in the tender care of Mitchell and her fine cadre of fellow acoustic musicians.- Lynne Heffey”

Little Seed Review

It may not be cosmically possible for Elizabeth Mitchell to release an unrewarding, lackluster, run of the mill album; nevertheless it’s always great to see that she’s still got the magic touch. Anyone can record an album of Woody Guthrie songs (and many people have!), but it takes a nimble but earthy musical touch to get it just right. Little Seed is an all around winner, and is highly recommended for any home, classroom, and library. Send a copy to your congressperson and ask them to thoughtfully listen to all the verses of “This Land is Your Land,” maybe it’ll open up some minds and hearts.

All Music Guide reviews “Little Seed” !

“The 13 tracks are ceaselessly charming and often cut the preciousness inherent to kid’s music with a subtle sense of humor and reverence walking hand in hand with the more childlike elements. Field recording-like automotive sound effects on “Riding in My Car” are devoid of any cuteness whatsoever, and Mitchell’s extensive liner notes speak of her discovery of Woody Guthrie’s freely associated children’s music and how it helped her find mystery and joy in what formerly seemed too straightforward or cloying. Her deep connection with his innocent sounds in her adult life is felt throughout the album… Little Seed captures all of the freewheeling ramble of Guthrie’s spirit and fuses it with the starry-eyed beauty of Mitchell’s crystal-clear voice and glowing songcraft.”
