One of the more enjoyable efforts of the chidren's label, Adventures at Catfish Pond finds singer Catfish Hodge and his friends telling tales in a delightful musical gumbo. Part blues, part jazz, part folk and all fun, Adventures celebrates rural America and its inhabitants, human or otherwise. Hodge's "The Pancake Man" has been covered elsewhere, but not nearly so well as Hodge does it himself. And the stories between tracks add, rather than detract from, the proceedings.
