The Best of the Laurie Berkner Band
Parents’ Choice Recommended Award Winner
Two Tomatoes Records
The Laurie Berkner fans who turned the former indie-rocker into a best-selling children’s music artist will enjoy this 2010 compilation of favorites tracing the singer’s musical journey that began in 2007 with the release of her cassette, “Whaddaya Think of That?” For those unfamiliar with Berkner, the album serves as a nice introduction to her warm vocal stylings and well-crafted songs infused with gentle humor and an infectious beat. Highlights include: “Vito and Freddie Vasco,” from Berkner’s first children’s book about a pair of traveling polar bears; “Five Days Old,” from 2008’s “Rocketship Run”; and “I’m Gonna Catch You” from “Under a Shady Tree,” a 2002 release.
