ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
All of us have memories of a wise and gentle old man from our childhood. He always had a calming effect on us, as if everything would be ok in his arms. After all these men raised our parents…they must know something! The thought of them conjures up the smell of an old smoldering corn pipe or cream of wheat with brown sugar and butter heaped in the center of his favorite cracked bowl from the old country. Remember how we tried to tickle him back through the holes in that old brown sweater? Or the times he took us “fishin” and we watched his line while he napped under the shade tree? If he took us out after church, we knew we’d get an extra big slice of that peach cobbler from the Swine ‘N Dine.

We all have certain folks from our childhood that have influenced us and are an important part of who we have become. In our family of songwriters and all roun’ creative folk - the Soul Kitchen family - that special person is Jim Boyd, affectionately known as Poppy. Grandfather, professor, musician, world traveler, lover, philosopher and friend – Poppy unselfishly shares his experience and wisdom with whoever cares to listen.

This record is a tribute to Poppy, and in honor of children everywhere and of every age. The songs were written as part of an exercise during one of our Songwriter Soul Kitchen* workshops and performed by Poppy and others from the Soul Kitchen Family at Stankfish Studio. It is our pleasure to share them with you and we hope that your family enjoys them as much as we enjoyed writing them.

Karen Payne- Woods

"Middle sc-Cool Blues"
I am an Assistant Principal in a large urban middle school. This CD is my special extraordinary defense measure to resolve issues and it works to perfection every time. It all started by accident, or maybe divine intervention. One day two arguing young ladies were being escorted to my office by their teacher. The students were very loud and I could hear them from the other end of the hall. By the time they reached my office they, as well as their teacher, were extremely heated. In my “soul momma” voice, my next rolling and hands on my hip I told them to sit, be quiet, and I hit play on my CD. “Poppy Sangs” took over and did the rest. As I was giving the girls time to cool down, I noticed that not only were they cooling off, they were very calm. After a few more listening “moments” the girls were talking and resolving their own issue. Finally, I said what I needed to say, and I was sending them on their merry way, one them said, “Ms. Woods, what in the world are you listening to?" My response, “why, do you like it?” The typical middle school response was given, “it’s alright, I guess.” If they like it, I love it!
Thanks Poppy, you are my magic weapon for young dreamers!
