Thank You, Mister Rogers: Music & Memories” Deluxe Album is being reissued to commemorate Fred Rogers’ 95th birthday.

GRAMMY® and Emmy winning music producer Dennis Scott is reissuing a special deluxe version of the 2019 album, “Thank You, Mister Rogers: Music & Memories”, his second recorded collection of Fred’s original music.

Adult Contemporary / Oldies / Children's Music

Originally released in 2019, the album features recordings from music icons like Micky Dolenz, Sandi Patty, Vanessa Williams, Jim Brickman, Jon Secada, Lee Greenwood, Rita Wilson, Tom Bergeron, The Cowsills, Jaci Velasquez, Kellie Pickler, Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis Jr.

The new deluxe reissue includes a newly recorded version of “Won’t You Be My Neighbor” by singer-songwriter and guitar virtuoso Parker Hastings, along with artist interviews, and track commentary.

“Thank You, Mister Rogers: Music & Memories” has won several awards including the Parent’s Choice Award, National Parenting Products Award, Family Choice Award, Hot Diggity Award, and was a nominee of American Association of Independent Music's Libera Award.

Scott also recorded and produced “Songs From The Neighborhood - The Music of Mister Rogers”, which won a GRAMMY® award in 2006 for Best Musical Album for Children, and featured recordings from music icons Crystal Gayle, Ricky Skaggs, Jon Secada, Amy Grant, CeCe Winans and others.

 “After producing two albums featuring Fred Rogers’ music, I have developed a deep appreciation for his songwriting skills,” said Dennis Scott. "If you look closely at his tunes you can see what a lyrical craftsman he was. And his choice of chords are more complex than one might expect to hear in any “children’s” song. That’s the magic of Mister Rogers."

Scott continues to say, "He never talked down to kids - musically or otherwise. His songs have messages for all ages and his composing is as sophisticated as many of our great American writers. There’s no doubt in my mind that he belongs in The Songwriters Hall of Fame."
