Lest members of Red Sox Nation become too complacent, they should refresh their memories with the story of “Casey at the Bat”! On a certain day in Mudville, neither the demeanor of Casey nor the outcome of the game was one the citizenry wanted to remember. This selection in the Stories in Music series is an attractive package for young listeners. In the tradition of PETER AND THE WOLF, Stephen Simon has incorporated a fine recitation of Thayer’s poem, an original orchestration, suggestions for how to hear the poem’s story within the music, musical activities, and timeless ballpark sound effects. It’s an appealing composite that will merit multiple listenings. Each time, listeners will appreciate more of the poem and the music. (And take time to enjoy the packaging of this recording.)
