Children Of The World feat. Ellen Foley and Jimmy Hall - The Time Is Now b/w American Medley (1980) - single

Steve Popovich and legendary Nashville producer/arranger Bill Justis have created a labor of love for our perpetual enjoyment and inspiration.
The voices of children never fail to create goose-bumps — and these Children of the World will thrill your heart. They sing with a long list of adult superstars and the selection of songs is brilliant, from "If We Only Had The Time" (what a philosophy to come from out-of-the-mouths-of-babes) and "Kids Are People, Too," to "Grandfather Song" (perfect!), to a stirring, scalp-tingling "American Medley" with Charlie Daniels.
The soul is inspired. The eyes mist over … It is time that the music of our children be heard outside of school auditoriums and classrooms. It is time for these voices to ride the media and caress the airwaves. For these are the voices of rock and flame. These are indeed the voices of our children … Children of the World.

Ellen’s duet with Jimmy Hall "The Time is Now" is, unsurprisingly, a sticky sweet ballad.
The album also contains an instrumental introduction written by Ian Hunter, a song by Abba’s Björn and Benny [Disclaimer: I fucking hate Abba], an appearance by Slovakian polka king Frank Yankovich (not related to ‘Weird’ Al) and a Father Abraham and the Smurfs song performed by Hervé Villechaize.
