Tony Schwartz Records the Sound of Children

Tony Schwartz FW05583 / FH 5583

Tony Schwartz records The Sounds of Children (shades of the television classic Kids Say the Darndest Things). This collection of audio montages captures kids talking off the cuff about a variety of topics including God, playing with other children, stuffed animals, and growing pains. Hilarious at times and revelatory at others, the album is edited from hundreds of interviews with children. Liner notes include Schwartz’s own suggestions on how people can make and edit their own recordings with kids.
