ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Olympia Records is proud to announce the CD release of "Underwater Land", a collection of 17 children’s songs, written and produced by the legendary Shel Silverstein and sung by his longtime friend and collaborator Pat Dailey. Already a Parent's Choice Foundation Gold Award winner, "Underwater Land" is "Marvelous!" (Disney's Family Fun magazine), "Simply Hilarious!" (Parent's Chioce) and "Bound to be a Classic!" (BestChildrensMusic.com). The CD features performances by Shel himself on several tracks, and the beautiful 32-page booklet boasts all the lyrics and many previously unpublished Silverstein drawings.

Shel Silverstein (1930-1999), the renowned poet, illustrator, screenwriter, and songwriter, is best known for his immensely popular children’s books including The Giving Tree, Falling Up, and A Light in the Attic, which have entertained a worldwide audience and amassed sales in the tens of millions. A celebrated recording artist, Silverstein won the 1984 Grammy Award for Best Children’s Recording for his performance of Where the Sidewalk Ends.

Singer/songwriter Pat Dailey has released 13 acclaimed albums, and is a wintertime staple at Sloppy Joe’s, the Key West landmark. A popular veteran of the Midwest music scene, Dailey regularly performs to capacity crowds from Michigan to Florida. Close friends for over a decade, Silverstein and Dailey traveled to Nashville in 1997 to record Underwater Land. A regular in Nashville's music circles, Silverstein assembled some of that city's finest musicians, and produced the recordings.

Underwater Land is already being hailed as the most anticipated release of the year by the millions of Silverstein fans around the world. Sarah Weinman of the Shel Silverstein Archive calls it “absolutely wonderful... [Silverstein’s] last hurrah... whether you are young, old, young at heart, or somewhere in between, get this album!” Chicago Parent magazine featured UL in a feature article "The Last of Silverstein is a First Choice", calling it a "wonderfully creative and poignant recording”, and Disney’s Family Fun magazine enthused: "Lyrically marvelous, marvelously irreverent, and irreverently hilarious!" Underwater Land received a Parents’ Guide to Children’s Media award, and the Parent’s Choice Foundation has just awarded Underwater Land the prestigious 2003 Gold Award, it’s highest.

Dailey and Silverstein’s mutual love of the sea and songwriting magically unite in Underwater Land, where fish, lobsters and other sea characters sing, joke and make unforgettable underwater music. Brought to life by Dailey’s delightfully personable singing, Underwater Land is full of the irreverence and easy charm that have made Shel Silverstein one of the best-loved, and best-selling authors of all time.

Thank goodness - One more kid's album that doesn't drive a parent INSANE!
Not only does Underwater Land not drive me nuts, it actuallty cracks me up. Now maybe I have a juvenile sense of humor, but hey, if it works for both me and my kids, I can't complain. Most typical kids CDs drive me bonkers within the first five minutes. Other than Dan Zanes and some misc. (David Bowie narrating Peter and the Wolf! Elizabeth Mitchell, etc., we mostly listed to our own music with the kids. But it is fun to have more alternatives and shel Silverstein's poetry is awesome!

How cute! I plan to use it with my 3rd grade students.
