Album Notes
This,the second of Mr. Darby's children's music discs, "Dega B'deg:If You Can Walk You Can Dance...", is a bright, crisp recording featuring the resonater guitar, harmonicas,various percussion instruments including the djembe, and the Lebaphone -- eight bamboo tubes tuned at d-e-g-a-b-d-e-and g. I played all instruments and sang all vocals, adding harmony, except the girls voicing the response lines on, "I Went for a Walk", performed by Isabel and Perrin Lafky.
The inspiration to include these particular songs on the CD came from the many children I sing with and perform for on a weekly basis. A child's love of games and acting out stories and songs is strong, so how much more fun can "Monkeys on the Bed" be, especially with an extended version involving Mr. Darby's 'Dream Sequence'.
Or how about an excursion to the baker's shop with "Five Little Muffins", accompanied by the melodic and rhythmic Lebaphone? Doesn't get much better than that, I'd say.

Cheers, Mr.Darby

Foot-tappin' Fun Kids CD

William and the Reviewer Team
Get your hands ready for a clap-along. "Dega B'deg: If You Can Walk and Dance" by Mr.Darby Gerking is an album for kids and parents alike. No cheesy stuff here. This album is filled with foot tapping Swamp riffs and Country twang. You can revel in the superior musicianship, while your little one learns the ABC's and the days of the week. Mr. Darby has a soothing, fun and child friendly voice. The arrangements are fun and quirky and equally so are the lyrics. Highlights are "I Went for a Walk", with its sinister swagger, cute children's chorus and kooky lyrics. "Monkeys on the Bed" is a little boot knocker, with a cool little dream sequence. "Dega B'deg" features lots of fun percussion sounds an footd resonator guitar. If you enjoy fun, foot-tapping kids music that entertains adults as well, you'll enjoy this fine CD.
