The Free Design produced an album of songs for "very important people" back in 1970, and its appeal hasn't weakened a bit as those very important people have grown up.
Inspired by the release of Peter, Paul and Mary's Peter, Paul and Mommy, The Free Design produced a batch of new songs specifically for younger listeners, combined those tunes with a few the band had already released, and came up with their fifth album, Sing for Very Important People.
The Free Design's influence on indie pop is evidenced by the output of current bands like The High Llamas, Cornelius, Stereolab, and Belle and Sebastian. Sing for Very Important People is a great example of The Free Design's musical strengths and aural appeal, besides being a super album for kids and their families.
