Notes and Editorial Reviews

Those who observe strict adherence to the formal rules of pedantry will be quick to point out that the title of this collection is misleading … and they are quite right! Not all the tracks refer to animals; there are birds and insects among the other creatures thrown in for good measure. A more accurate title would be 'non-human antics', but please accept our good intentions in allowing human composers to pay tribute to those creatures on our planet that are genetically different from us. The collection opens with a stunning number by Bernie Wayne who gained international approval for hits such as "Vanessa" and "Veradero". Quite why his "Dance of the Little Pink Horse" isn't better known must remain a mystery, Read more but it is only one of several pleasant surprises contained in this varied selection.
