Editor’s Note: I had the privilege of getting a review copy of the Kenny Loggins CD — All Join In — a while back. I’m just now getting to the review — I’ve had a busy fall with travel and 3 kids at 2 different schools! Writing up reviews before the Halloween, Thanksgiving, and holiday season are in full swing.
I’m a recent fan of Kenny Loggins. I knew of him when he was Loggins and Messina, but did not listen. My first recollection of Kenny Loggins? The soundtrack to Caddyshack. Not a huge fan of the film, but the song I’m Alright was a classic especially the gopher:
All Join In is a rollicking, rousing good time type of a CD. The track listing is as follows (the comments are from the Musings from Me review team):
1. Underneath the Same Sky
2. All Together Now
3. You’ve Got a Friend in Me — from Toy Story soundtrack
4. Two of Us
5. Come Go With Me — country sounding
6. There Is a Mountain — liked squeaky voice
7. The Puppy Song — catchy tune
8. You Can All Join In
10. Long Tailed Cat — sounds Brother Where Are Thou Like
11. Your Lollipop — funny
12. Moose ‘n Me
Did you know this about Kenny Loggins?
– Nearly four decades as a singer/songwriter, 25 million albums sold worldwide and two Grammy Awards to his name, Kenny Loggins has established himself as many things to countless music lovers.
– Throughout the years he’s enjoyed hit after hit, many from popular soundtracks like Footloose, Caddyshack (“I’m Alright”) and Top Gun (“Danger Zone”).
– Kenny also became the first major rock star to dedicate himself to recording music for children, his album Return to Pooh Corner is still the best selling children’s album of the last 20 years.
All Join In — It is a lovingly crafted, extremely entertaining collection of uplifting songs — a musical gumbo to please long time fans, parents and children alike. The album includes fresh, creative takes of classics: The Beatles‘ “All Together Now” and “Two of Us” (the latter being his first studio recording in decades with Jim Messina), Randy Newman‘s “You’ve Got a Friend in Me”, the Dell Vikings‘ 1950’s classic “Come Go With Me, “Traffic‘s “You Can All Join In” (appropriately joined by the song’s writer and former Traffic member, Dave Mason) and Donovan‘s 1960’s classic “There Is a Mountain.”
