While Seattle might currently be a hotbed for Kids and Family Music, with The Not-Its!, Caspar Babypants, Johnny Bregar, The Board of Education, The Harmonica Pocket, and Recess Monkey being recognized as "The Kindiependent Collective," I can't help but think that it was nearly 21 years ago already that Cameron Crowe's SINGLES came out, rockin' a killer soundtrack that represented a harsher side of Seattle, featuring (among others), ALICE IN CHAINS, who also made an appearance in the film. Now, here I am a parent, and LULLABY VERSIONS OF ALICE IN CHAINS is being released, transforming songs like "Would?" into nursery-friendly jams for the youngest rockers on the planet. The crew at Roma Music Group hit The Rock Father with the full details on their upcoming release, due on August 27th as part of their Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star series. Check out the lullaby version of "Man in the Box" below, along with the clever cover art and tracklisting. Pre-Orders just went live on iTunes, and if you grab it now, the track will be yours immediately!
