Here's what the reviewer's had to say about Joel Frankel's "I Can't Sit Still":
Billboard Magazine's Child's Play column praised "I Can't Sit Still" as "...one of the most delightful, original cassettes we have come across in recent times."
Publisher's Weekly opined, "...a winning combination of intelligent, plain lyrics and engaging music. In addition to guitar and keyboards, cat purrs, kazoo, spoons and fiddles augment the music. The quirkiness and simplicity of Frankel's songs make this an ideal listening experience."
