Marlo Thomas and Friends - Free To Be... You And Me Click here to see this CD at!

By Denise Sheppard

There are thousands upon thousands of children's albums out there, but the one that quietly left its mark with more '70s children than perhaps any other album was this disc. Free to Be...You and Me was a pet project of proud feminist Marlo Thomas (a.k.a. "That Girl"), and it was born--according to the liner notes--by the desire to provide her niece with music "to celebrate who she was and who she could be." Harry Belafonte sings "Parents Are People," ex-football great Rosie Grier offers an incredible, touching melody titled "It's All Right to Cry," and Diana Ross waxes future-positive on "When We Grow Up." A great hour of brain food for young--and not-so-young--children.

Your Memories Shared!

"I just loved it when I was growing up! Now I had a friend put it on CD for me and I remembered why it was that I loved it so much. The music is bright and cheery and the stories were fun. I am thankful to Marlo and her friends for putting this together and for sharing it with everyone, even though she meant it for only her niece at first. There's a message here that is timeless and is just as relevant today as it was back then. I know that if ever I have children I'll share it with them, or with any other children I have the privilege to know in my life. :)"

"I agree with that review. I recently was in the play of Free To Be...You And Me. The lyrics were fun and the melodies were touching. These songs make me feel free to be myself."


"Oh my goodness! I have been singing that song by Diana Ross and Michael Jackson for years and I didn't know why! Being born in the mid-Super70s, I have been looking for this video for years. I could only remember small parts of the movie and I remember loving it! Funny, it seemed a lot longer than 45 minutes watching it on a film projector in the late Super70s!

I'm buying it right now and I am glad to recapture a part of my EARLY childhood memories! Thanks!"
