a landmark in children's albums

If you were a kid in the 1970s', chances are you had a copy of this little gem. FREE TO BE YOU AND ME was created by Marlo Thomas as a teaching tool for children. Filled with great songs and comedy bits from a galaxy of stars, the album teaches gentle lessons about sharing, self-belief and tolerance.

Marlo Thomas originally created the album because she wanted her niece to have something that celebrated just being a kid, but this album was proudly adopted by an entire generation, and songs like "It's All Right to Cry", "Parents are People", and "William's Doll" became anthems in the schoolyard. Parents who grew up with the album now have the opportunity to pass it along to their own children, thanks to this reissue from Arista Records.

Highlights include husband/wife team Shirley Jones and Jack Cassidy with "Girl Land", Carol Channing with "Housework"; and Marlo Thomas with "Ladies First".

Totally magic.
