Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • The unerringly incisive (but always warm and engaging) satire of Shel Silverstein has expressed itself through stories, plays, cartoons, and, of course, songs. The musical side of his work bears the most personal stamp, though. His rough, endearingly amateurish singing and whole-hearted delivery effectively convey his unique charisma, and THE BEST OF SHEL SILVERSTEIN offers a fine entry into Silverstein's musical world. From his good-humored dissection of the hippie era ("Freakin' At the Freakers Ball") to the tunes that became staples of other artists' repertoire ("Marie Laveau," "A Boy Named Sue") and his poems/songs for children (he eventually achieved his greatest success with children's books), this collection paints a comprehensive portrait of Silverstein's multi-faceted talents.
Professional Reviews
Dirty Linen (pp.47-48) - "Silverstein's own voice was a raspy, delightfully expressive instrument that crossed the weirdest parts of Sterling Holloway and John Jacob Niles."
