RAVE REVIEW!

"For parents, children's music must be able to hold up to the repeated listening that youngsters often demand. And for songs to stand that test, they must have catchy lyrics as well as musical durability. That makes The Teds one act worth looking for. Made up of celebrated poet Robert Priest, composer Allen Booth and singer Djanet Sears, the Toronto-based trio boasts two of the most listenable releases available: Playsongs and Lullabies and the recent Winterlong (both on Waterlily). Performers like The Teds show that children's music has come a long way. They make songs for youngsters a truly grown-up pleasure."
– Nicholas Jennings, Maclean's, December l4 l992
