Popular children's musician Barry Louis Polisar takes a look back at his least favorite songs from his own 1970s-era albums and reworks them into brand new tunes in this two-CD compilation. Hitting the studio to tackle the "worst" from his back catalog, Polisar has re-recorded the songs and added instruments, branching out into completely new musical directions with studio help from his teenaged kids—themselves the subjects of some of his most "awful" songs. 
Barry Louis Polisar is a four-time Parents Choice Award winner who has written songs for Sesame Street and Weekly Reader; starred in an Emmy Award–winning television show for children; performed at The White House, The Smithsonian, and The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts; and has been featured regularly on The Learning Channel. He has won a Special Library Recognition Award for his "ability to communicate with and excite children to read" through his books, poems, and songs. His previous CDs include Barry Louis Polisar's a Little Different; Old Dogs, New Tricks; and Teacher's Favorites. He lives in Silver Spring, Maryland.
