The Putumayo Kids label usually does a great job of collecting songs from around the globe for children and their families, but Putumayo Kids Presents: World Sing-Along just doesn't hit the mark. A few great songs are included on this compilation, but most are simply so-so.
The collection is redeemed by a few artists like Frances England, Father Goose, and Dan Zanes, but listeners may as well pick up the excellent albums from which their songs are extracted. Great try, Putumayo, but we'll be waiting for your next great compilation.
