for spoon. this mix is based on the children book Cannonball Simp by John Burningham. the book is aobut a dog who isn't loved by his master and is dumped on the side of the road. simp, the dog walks and has several adventures as detailed by the mix. he stumbles onto a circus where he is accepted and becomes... CANNONBALL SIMP!
the music is pretty cut and dry-the blues for the start and pop for the happy parts. notable is the most perfect circus song by Giles, Giles and Fripp and the doo wop classic Zoom! by the Cadillacs. spoon will get the very limted copy of this wonderful book along with the cd. enjoy.

I'd love a copy of this, Peter. Any chance we can trade for it? I realize I still have to send you a second copy of "Up with the sun", but let me know what else you might like.

the book isn't in print anymore (i got it at used book store) but amazon.com list several copies of it at 3 dollars-totally worth it in my opinion.
