We gave it a B

A mostly country response to 1992’s ‘Til Their Eyes Shine The Lullaby Album, on which musical moms sang wee ones to sleep, this album, Daddies Sing GoodNight: A Fathers’ Collection of Sleeptytime Songs, proves that a father’s love is no less fervent. Doc Watson, Townes Van Zandt, Jesse Winchester, Leon Redbone, and others serve up paternal pride, poignancy, and protectiveness in a surprisingly moving tribute to the child-parent bond.
