Known to millions as the father on the NBC hit 3rd Rock from the Sun, Emmy Award-winning actor John Lithgow makes his career tackling difficult parts. On his children's record SINGIN' IN THE BATHTUB, Lithgow's easy sense of humor, as well as his occasional flashes of knowing wickedness, make this a kid's album that's thoroughly enjoyable for adults as well.
In the jaunty, big-band opening track "Everybody Eats When They Come to My House," Lithgow rattles off a litany of first names that rhyme with food, while on "A - You're Adorable," he engages a studio full of children to sing the alphabet along with him. SINGIN' IN THE BATHTUB is as light-hearted a recording as you are likely to hear, and Lithgow's versions of "Swingin' on a Star" and Frank Loesser's "The Inchworm" are sure to get the kids singing along.
