Publishers Description
From live broadcasts of "A Prairie Home Companion."
After the birth of Garrison Keillor's daughter, the stories, songs, and sketches on "A Prairie Home Companion" took on a distinctly parental bent. This new collection gathers the warmest, funniest, most affectionate examples: dance tunes and comedy with sound effects; songs featuring Chet Atkins, Leo Kottke, Beaussoleil, and other guests; Ian Frazier's much-requested "Lamentations of the Father"; and Garrison's version of "The Princess and the Pea." Garrison says, "I test-played this album for my daughter, who is three, and she jumped around a lot."
Filled with stories, sketches, and songs recorded from live broadcasts, "Definitely Above Average" will delight parents and children everywhere.

    Reviews - What do customers think about Definitely Above Average?

    Perhaps just a smidge above average  Feb 2, 2001
    If you are unfamiliar with Keillor, but like listening to old time radio shows, then you may enjoy this cd. I liked this collection, even though it is frequently corny.

    While an adult would have to be a true fan to enjoy Keillor's singing on the music cd, my uncritical toddler bounces to the rhythms and enjoys the quirky music. As an adult, the cd with the sketches is more enjoyable. "Laws concerning Food and Drink: Household Principles; Lamentations of the Father" is worth the price of the cd alone.

    Definitely BELOW Average  Dec 3, 2000
    This is missing much of the charm of the usual Prairie Home Companion programs. The first CD consists only of songs. If you listen to the show for the music you may like this. The second cd has a few long sketches, a couple of which were entertaining, the others were simply repetitive. If you're expecting the typical Prairie Home Companion show, look elsewhere.
