Yellow Fever

(5 out of 5 stars)

"There's a higher standard in children's music these days. Discerning parents now have more than just Raffi and The Wiggles to choose from. And school-age kids, especially mine, have become increasingly sophisticated about what they want to hear. No more "Wheels On The Bus" or "Hot Potato" for them! Children's musicians like Dan Zanes, Ralph's World, and Eric Herman have responded by producing intelligent, thoughtful songs that appeal not only to the kids, but also to the parents who are monitoring the boomboxes and car stereos.

Well, Morgan Taylor has raised the bar even higher with his astounding new release, Gustafer Yellowgold's Have You Never Been Yellow?, a highly imaginative tale of a curious creature named Gustafer Yellowgold who leaves his home on the Sun to explore Earth. It's all wildly inventive and surreal, just the kind of lyrics that kids of all ages will eat up. The music is shimmering pop that sounds like a cross between XTC, Robyn Hitchcock and Donovan. There are plenty of jangly guitars and hand-claps mixed in with the gentle pianos and horns. The CD also comes with a DVD of animated videos for each song, beautifully drawn by Taylor. It's a treat for the ears and eyes.

I've played this disc for friends who raved about it, having no clue that it was a children's CD. Most importantly, though, my kids give Gustafer Yellowgold the highest praise, both asking for songs to be repeated while we drive around town."
Superbly produced from beginning to end

A DVD/CD production showcasing nine original songs by illustrator and songwriter Morgan Taylor, "Gustafer Yellowgold's Have You Never Been Yellow?" is the utterly charming sequel to "Gustafer Yellowgold's Wide Wild World" that debuted to great acclaim and popularity in the spring of 2007. In this latest chronicle of the adventures of Gustafer Yellowgold (a charming visitor from the Sun), we follow along with Gustafer's friends that include Forrest Applecrumbi (a well-dressed Pterodactyl), Slim the Eel, and Asparagus the Dragon. The lively and minimally animated illustrations enhance the catchy tunes with such novelty tunes as "The Mustard Slugs"; "The Bluebird Tree"; "Pinecone Lovely"; "Aye, Aphid", "Birds", "Beard For All Seasons, "Punching Cheese"; "The Cactus Calls", and the signature piece, "Dream in Green". Superbly produced from beginning to end (all videos are playable in normal, karaoke style, and/or with audio commentary by Morgan Taylor), and with a total running time of one hour, "Gustafer Yellowgold's Have You Never Been Yellow?" is especially recommended for children ages 3 through 6 and would make a very highly popular addition to family, preschool, kindergarten, and community library collections."
The best children's project of the 21st Century. Really!

"The Gustafer Yellowgold project is unique not only for its thoughtful content, which deftly integrates important life lessons with fun stuff, but also because it can be enjoyed by both children and their parents for the same reasons -- a sort of Shel Silverstein-meets-Yellow Submarine.

We love Sendak. We love Suess. And now we love Gustafer. This is not frenetic, animated crap or solipsistic Wiggles fare; it's a true gem, highly recommended by every child librarian, parent, kid advocacy group and mainstream press outlet you've ever heard of. A must-have for early readers.

I'm in love with this CD/DVD

"I bought this after searching for better music for my nearly 2-year old son. We have been listening to the usual Wheels on the Bus, some Rockasaurus Rex (which rawks), and They Might Be Giants. I was looking for something lyrical that I could also get into and this is really good stuff. He is too young to sing the words but loves it when I sing along to the videos. He is really glued to the TV during the videos but participates. It amazes me because the subject-matter and style seem very mature but it totally speaks to my son; he gets it. The whole thing is very well done, the package is beautiful and the drawings and animation are amazing. I am definitely going to get have to get the other DVD as well."
