April '06 review: Steve Weeks: Alphabet Songs Vol. 2 (Ivan Idea)
Alphabet Songs Vol. 2 (Ivan Idea)
I've an idea' says Ivan Idea, while Kiki Kangaroo 'kicks her heals up' & Professor Poidexter P. Puggleston has a Prepostrapercopopulataportapipplephone. That's the kind of humorous, imaginative & tounge twisting lyrics you'll find on Steve Weeks second Alphabet Songs album (letters I - Q). Many children's artists write songs with alliteration, but Steve is making a whole career out of it...& he does it well. A mix of country, jazz, funk & mid-tempo rock with very interesting percussion & hooky guitar keeps it fresh & lively.
