Ralph's World: The Amazing Adventures of Kid Astro
The fifth CD from Ralph's World features the sci-fi title cut that has been described as Paul McCartney performing in Queen, as well as the audience sing-a-long favorite, "We Are Ants," and the first song Ralph Covert ever wrote, "Old Man Dan." As Ralph's World rocketed into national stardom, including national TV appearances, a front page feature in the New York Times Arts Section and a review in Time Magazine, the songwriting and production soared to even more exciting heights, electrifying audiences and changing kids music forever.
Imagine Ziggy Stardust--era David Bowie doing the theme for a Nickelodeon cartoon, and you'll have the title track, a 3-min. rock operetta about a space boy who gets powers from a magic comet (but still has to go to school). From there, alt rocker turned children's rocker Ralph Covert runs through genres like a kid hitting every ride at a theme park: British Invasion backbeats, infectious Buddy Holly stomps and fanciful finger picking.
