A Song for My Father - 180 Music

June 13, 2007
Boston Herald

Grade: B

This readymade gift for babyboomer dads - part of a new line of releases only sold at Target - works a sweet concept: songs by famous musician dads performed by their professional musician offspring. It starts strong with Salvador Santana’s “Evil Ways,” but quickly turns uneven (unless your dad has a weakness for Jim Croce and Harry Chapin). Still, there are enough charming tracks (Carnie & Wendy Wilson’s “Warmth of the Sun,” Devon Allman’s “Midnight Rider,” Ky Mani Marley’s “Soul Shake Down Party”) to make a good half or so worth downloading into Pop’s new iPod.
