Listening Lounge: Rocnoceros' Colonel Purple Turtle Review & GIVEAWAY (closed)

Looking for some fun music to laugh and dance to with the kids? Try the newly released Colonel Purple Turtle from Rocknoceros… if that name just doesn’t say it all!
The album, by Northern Virginia’s premiere power trio for children–Rocknoceros, offers lessons in science and lessons in life and will have you learning and laughing all the way through! There is even a 24-page book, Colonel Purple Turtle’s Purple Turtle Journal, available as a companion to the album.
The three members of Rocknoceros: Coach Cotton, Williebob, and Boogie Woogie Bennie have the coveted ability to capture the attention of children with their silly personalities, fun songs, and whimsical rhythms! With the Colonel Purple Turtle album, your children will learn of friendship and working together through various musical adventures. The band members themselves have been best friends since they were little, which is truly reflected through song and story in this album!
Musical ability runs far and wide in this CD, with various musical styles, sounds, and compositional devices! It exposes kids to colorful nuance of sounds that will excite, delight, and inspire creativity!!
“Colonel Purple Turtle can be enjoyed and appreciated on many levels. It is fun and silly, festooned with colorfully descriptive language, word play, and humor, yet, at the same time quite serious and truthful. Taken individually, all the components of this album — the singing, the playing, the musical form of the pieces, the vivid contrasts — represent the highest production values, yet they never call attention to themselves, and neither the telling nor the message of the story is ever obscured.”
