VA - MOM & DAD Vol. 01 Fathers (A Butterboy Compilation) CD1+CD2+CD3


VA - MOM & DAD Vol. 01 Fathers (A Butterboy Compilation) CD1+CD2+CD3

There are few relationships that can be more heartwarming, heartbreaking, complicated and fraught with emotion than our relationships with our dads.  Artists have been writing songs about their relationship with their fathers or father figures throughout history. Many have great relationships with their fathers but sometimes not all relationships with fathers are rainbow and sunshine. No matter what we forget or want to forget about our dad's there is always at least one specific thing we remember. Musicians have a knack being able to separate the wheat from chaff and often present beautiful memories for us to relate to and reflect on. Songs that look from a child's eyes, songs are about life and some about loss and some of us become our father even if we don't like it. A fathers ways impact on how we all grow up and how we see the world. Whether that is a good or bad thing is up to you. 

Here is Volume one of a two-part series of songs about Mothers and Fathers. Volume one is dedicated to FATHER's and Volume two will be dedicated to MOTHER's.

These songs touch on special bonds held between a father and daughter or a father and son, and what it means to be on each end of that relationship.  Enjoy!
