Sugar Beats' Mellow My Baby collects vocal and instrumental versions of contemporary and classic lullabies such as "Never Never Land," "Golden Slumbers," "Rock-A-Bye Baby," and "Over the Rainbow." Label founder Sherry Goffin Kondor's sweet, understated vocals and the soft, mostly subtle arrangements suit both the songs and the album's purpose, particularly on the bittersweet yet lulling renditions of "The Inchworm" and "Island of Dreams," which also features backing vocals by Kondor's mother, Carole King. Mellow My Baby thoughtfully provides lyrics and instrumental versions of the songs for everyone who wants to sing their own versions of these lullabies. A uniquely personalized collection, Mellow My Baby continues Sugar Beats' tradition of sweet, but not syrupy, children's music. ~ Heather Phares
