Music CD Review & Giveaway: Monster Suit by Mo Phillips

Mo Phillips MONSTER SUIT Cover Art 300 dpi.jpg
My grandchildren love music and are always singing along while riding in the car. Given the chance they could sing and dance all day along with grandpa and grandma. So, when I was given the chance to review the album Monster Suit by Mo Phillips I jumped at the chance to try out some new music written for families and children.
When the package arrived I gave it to Pooh Bear to open. I was not sure how he would react I thought he might think it was a movie DVD. Immediately upon opening the wrapper Pooh Bear went straight to my computer. I tried to intercept him since I don't want a CD stuck in the disk drive. (Not that its ever happened before ha ha.) Well, Pooh Bear would not let me touch the CD he kept repeating "Pooh Bears CD" I had to gently guide his hands to inset the CD properly and he sat patiently waiting for it to load. I told him, "It is not a movie its music"! When the music started the first track began playing. The look on Pooh bears face was precious.(I forgot the camera of course). "Toes" started playing and Pooh Bear got up and was dancing around enjoying the music. I have got to say at this point that Monster Suit is not my kind of music but its for children 3 and up so who am I to judge. Pooh Bear thinks the music is great he has claimed the CD as his own and has put it on his book shelf along with his favorite books, puzzles and family picture album. In the last few days Pooh Bear has listened to the CD enough that its lively beat and strange but funny lyrics have started to grow on me.
This is part of the description written about Monster suit, "The uncomplicated charm of Monster Suit stems from its refreshing connection to what was happening in the late ‘50s, when rock ‘n’ roll was evolving from a cultural mix of country, folk, and African-American influence. With a style and delivery sometimes reminiscent of Woody and Arlo, Mo Phillips offers classic acoustic rock ‘n’ roll with a minimum of electric effects in a finely tuned but fiery blend of Americana, soul and blues."

  1. I think I might like the Train Beard CD. - Heather J.

  2. I like the Train Beard CD or Monster Suite.

  3. I am a retired kindergarten teacher and I have never heard of Mo Philips. Perhaps because he is in Portland and I am in Texas! I would love to add his CD to my collection of children's music that I now use for my grandkids.
