Notes and Editorial Reviews
Trains and boats and planes - and a lot more - have all provided inspiration for talented composers, as this fascinating collection vividly illustrates. All kinds of motion are represented, with the final track even transporting us into outer space. Backroom boys such as Jack Beaver, Len Stevens, Wally Stott and Sidney Torch excelled in creating three minute cameos in this style, and the CD opens with the famous ITN theme, appropriately called ''Non Stop''.
