I started working on a Chinese Zodiac
album a while ago. This one is a bit long, so I
put it out as a separate entity. I also recorded
a few different versions changing the names to
suit a variety of children who were in my life
at the time. It is actually a kind of song/story
but that's what I do. I make things up and sing
them, read them publish them or eat them. Yeah,
I also like to cook once in a while.
It's been quite a few years since I stopped working on this project. I didn't
realize how many until last week when I played this to my youngest granddaughter
who is going to be five this year. I guess I need to record a new version with
her name. In the meantime, I am working on a few more animals at her suggestion.
So far we've come up with "A Horse's Date," "Rose and Monkey" and "There's a
Rooster in the House." A word of warning might be in order here. The
completed zodiac album will have some songs like "The Year of the Pig" and "But I'm a
White Rat" that will not be quite suitable for children.
