Circle of the Sun

by Richard Younger

Richard’s 2012 CD, continues the good-time feel of his debut with originals like “Ten Little Fingers,” “New Boo Boo” and “Magic Shoes,” acoustic pop alongside stomping rock and R&B tracks like “Brain Freeze” and “Barefootin’.” Featuring vocals turns by daughters Sophie (“Fais Do Do”) and Michele (“Crash”), this 16-song set also pays homage to one of Richard's favorite bands, 2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees The Small Faces. Richard’s cover of the group’s “Up The Wooden Hills To Bedforshire,” features Ian McLagan of The Small Faces/Faces on keyboards. The band’s late bass player Ronnie Lane is remembered with an inspired version of his song “The Poacher.” Although it may not be a tune one expects on a children’s record, “It’s a beautiful tune," Richard notes, "I think kids will get it.” Folk gems like “Little Blue Top” “Turn Turn Turn” are delivered with Richard’s crystalline vocals and nimble-fingered guitar playing. Eclectic? Certainly. Good listening? You bet.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“In The Circle of the Sun…,” Richard’s new CD, continues the good-time feel of his debut with originals like “Ten Little Fingers,” “New Boo Boo” and “Magic Shoes,” along with the stomping “Brain Freeze” and “Barefootin’.” Featuring vocals turns by daughters Sophie (“Fais Do Do”) and Michele (“Crash”), this 16-song set also pays homage to 2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees The Small Faces, one of Richard’s fave British pop band. Richard’s cover of the group’s “Up The Wooden Hills To Bedforshire,” features Ian McLagen of The Small Faces/Faces on keyboards. The band’s late bass player Ronnie Wood is remembered with a plaintive cover of “The Poacher.” It may not be a tune one expects to find on a children’s record, but as Richard says, “It’s a beautiful tune. I think kids will get it.” Throughout, Richard's ringing voice and top-notch guitar skills shine light on one of the brightest talents on the children's music scene.

Max and Sam S. and friend, Damell

8, 7 and 4 year old love it!
We liked the cd because all the songs are different.The songs are very creative. We all liked listening to the cd. We really like the Brain Freeze song. All the instruments sound really good and we like that kids helped. We also liked that some of the songs have a mix of instruments.
