From live broadcasts of A Prairie Home Companion.After the birth of Garrison Keillor's daughter, the stories, songs, and sketches on A Prairie Home Companion took on a distinctly parental bent. This new collection gathers the warmest, funniest, most affectionate examples: dance tunes and comedy with sound effects; songs featuring Chet Atkins, Leo Kottke, Beaussoleil, and other guests; Ian Frazier's much-requested "Lamentations of the Father"; and Garrison's version of "The Princess and the Pea." Garrison says, "I test-played this album for my daughter, who is three, and she jumped around a lot."Filled with stories, sketches, and songs recorded from live broadcasts, Definitely Above Average will delight parents and children everywhere.Contents:Oh BabyBananasChildren Go Where I Send TheeThe True Sad Story of Mr. FroggieBaby DanceKnock Knock Who's ThereEl HamboHush Little BabyThe Baby Says HaEstrellitaCount Your BlessingsBrownie and PeteThe Horses Stood Around/Powdermilk Biscuit ThemeTell My MaHappy One StepOh Susanna FantasyWheels On the BusSongs That I Love BestBaby BluesTell Me WhyThe Chord That Jack PlayedA Game of ChessThe Princess and the PeaThe Sound Effects Man Part OneThe Snow QueenThe Sound Effects Man Part Two
