****'backyard guitar' is coming soon!!! alan's new album 'backyard guitar' will be available at the end of November 2006! Watch for it at cdbaby.com******
"Simply beautiful music to ease the way to dreamland, played by master guitarist Alan Goodman. His tender touch lends quiet intimacy to well-chosen traditional and original melodies with such cozy titles as "London Hush Baby," "Lullybye Bye," "Tranquila" and "Eensy Weensy Medley." Sunshine, starshine and moonlight."

"well done lullabies on a well played guitar..."
John Wood, NAPPA judge, November 2005
'under the bed' has just won the 2005 Parents' Choice Gold Award, the 2005 NAPPA award in the Children's Resources category and the 2005 iParenting Media award!
The Parents' Choice Gold Awards are given to those books, toys, games, videos, software, magazines, audio recordings, and television programs that are judged as the highest quality, most appealing products in their genre. Criteria for judgments include the highest production standards, universal human values and a unique, individual quality that pushes the product a notch above others.
"The new album from guitar maestro Alan Goodman is a bold and innovative journey into the world of lullabies. The melodies are strong, lilting, and at times playful. The playing is spirited, full of the flamenco flourishes we have come to expect from Alan, and yet still understated enough to let the melodies sing. This is a 'wind-down' album meant not only for children but for anyone who needs an honest and engaging send off after a hard day..or night. Truly solo guitar music for all ages."
