Schoolhouse Rock! Rocks

Genre: Rock; Lead Performer: Various Artists; Status: In Season

After the recent Saturday Morning Cartoons compilation album, it’s easy to dismiss the tribute to ABC’s bygone series Schoolhouse Rock! Rocks as more navel-gazing by a generation too young to be nostalgic. But the outright charm of its varied contributions, especially those of Biz Markie (”Energy Blues”), Folk Implosion (”I’m Just a Bill”), and Daniel Johnston (”Unpack Your Adjectives”) is enough to keep cynicism well at bay.
