Free to Be… You and Me

Posted on Sep 16, 2010

 There are probably not many other things that have influenced my way of thinking more than the album and book Free to Be… You and Me by Marlo Thomas and an all star cast.  Ideas like this make being born in the 70's grand.  The songs and stories are funny and they also have important messages.  I've been thinking about this album a lot lately because of my friends who are now having children.  This is something I think all growing children should hear.  When I was visiting my mom in Newport, I found the album at a garage sale.  I couldn't believe my luck.  It brought back a flood of memories and now I really want to give my friends digital copies for their babies.  

It's Alright to Cry song by Football player Rosie Grier is one of the finest things ever recorded.   Circle of Friends with Marlo Thomas, Kris Kristofferson and Rita Coolidge is also very cool.


  1. I remember the book, but I’ve never heard the album. Make me a copy, too.

  2. Absolutely! I’ll give it to you when I see you next. The album is so much better than the book. If you have the two together, it’s magic.
