Randy's seventh not-JUST-for-kids CD, Shake It and Break It, is available now! Jam on Rye
Here are what the critics are saying so far:

"No, this is not a kids record. [It's] aimed at kids but can really be appreciated by adults. This is like a modern version of Rocky & Bullwinkle. Sure, that was a cartoon, and five year olds couldn't really understand stories about the Cold War. Same vibe here. Adults will be ROFL throughout. ... This is a classic."
Midwest Record

"This outstanding album not only will have children laughing but also introduce them to blues music."
Book Worm

"Have you ever had one of those amazing experiences that you're pretty sure will play a part in how your kid chooses to live the rest of his/her life? Today was one of those days for me. The best analogy I can come up is that Randy Kaplan is the Arrested Development of children's music--brilliant, laugh-out-loud funny, and way ahead of his time."
—Melissa Skabich / FITS N GIGGLES

"Randy Kaplan is the current king of the storysong, and his magic is best witnessed live. Great example of grownup music for kids, kids' music for grownups."
—Warren Truitt /

"Randy Kaplan is one of those happy-they-exist people you can't quite tell is playing kids' music. And yet he is."

"He doesn’t dumb it down for the kids....He just expects them to come along for the ride. And they do."
