Product Overview

Golden Slumbers - A Father's Love is a heartfelt collection of songs celebrating the bond between father and child.

The album features contributions from such Grammy Award winning and critically acclaimed artists such as Dave Matthews, Phil Collins, Michael McDonald, Smokey Robinson, Jon Secada, Carlos Ponce, Richard Marx, Buddy Jewell, Will Downing, Solomon Burke, Loudon Wainwright III and Kirk Whalum, with a special appearances by James Earl Jones (all dads).

Each artist contributed a song that they felt best expressed their own unique perspective on fatherhood. The result is a diverse mix of music that everyone can relate to.

In addition to providing a touching insight to the relationships between these artists and their children, a portion of proceeds from Golden Slumbers: A Father’s Love will benefit the National Fatherhood Initiative (NFI), the nation’s leading fatherhood organization, whose mission is to improve the well-being of children by increasing the proportion who grow up with involved, responsible and committed fathers. The CD will also be released in conjunction with the NFI’s annual Golden Dad's Project. The campaign, sponsored every Father’s Day, is an event where celebrity dads reach out into the community and catch other dads doing something special with their children - from going to the zoo, taking a walk or going to the movies. This year the NFI plans to honor 2000 dads.

Golden Slumbers: A Father's Love collects together 13 tracks observing the relationships between father and child and doubly acts as a benefit to both the Golden Dads Project and the National Fatherhood Initiative. Punctuated by superb tracks from Loudon Wainwright III, Dave Matthews, Solomon Burke, and a lovely cover of "You Are So Beautiful to Me" by Smokey Robinson and executive producer of the project, Dave Koz, Golden Slumbers: A Father's Love makes a nice set of light contemporary pop balladry. ~ Gregory McIntosh
