The Kid in Black Recommends: Randy Kaplan’s Latest is For Kids, But Not *Just* For Kids

[Editor’s Note: Just a word from Cash’s dad and editor… he writes these pieces all by himself, at only 8 years old. I simply type them up, edit them, and occasionally embellish or fix a sentence. I don’t really do more than I have with many articles from adults that I edit. With this in mind, I am so proud of him and his writing skills. Enjoy!]

Welcome back to The Kid in Black Recommends. Today we are talking about Randy Kaplan’s new CD, Trippin’ Round the Mitten. It’s a kids album, but unlike some of Randy’s albums, it’s not only for kids. My dad likes it too!

I love all of Randy’s song on this cool CD. My favorite song is “Cat & Mice”. Randy sings “when the cats are away, the mice will play”. This is my favorite because it’s fun and funny.

The only song I don’t really like is the last song. I only didn’t like it because it’s too slow for me. I like fast and upbeat songs.


I love this CD a lot. I would give it five stars. I really want you all to listen to it. There are a lot of songs. I would guess the CD is about 56 minutes. I hope you listen and really love it, too.

See you next time!

Cash is Justin's eldest son. He's smart (like way too smart for his own good, in fact) and extremely talented. As a mere 8 year old, he likes to fill notebooks with math equations, with the occasional sketch and short story thrown in. He loves music, with some his favorites being Play Date, Koo Koo Kangaroo, The Aquabats, and (of course) his namesake, Johnny Cash. He's mildly obsessed with LEGOs and loves Batman. He really loves his mom, his brother, his dad, and his doggies. You can typically catch him rocking out with his brother, playing his kindle, or sorting through his Pokemon decks.
