One for the Kids…

November 4th, 2010

CD cover

Thirty years in the making…from a bedtime tale for his own children through various incarnations to now…finally on CD…the highly unlikely but quite possibly true story ofPILLIGA PETE & CLARRIE THE COCKY by JOHN WATERS.

The original recordings by producer Martin Erdman have been enhanced and expanded on with genuine sound effects and music by some of Australia’s finest country musicians (listen out for a cameo appearance by John ‘Mr. Hoedown’ Minson on harmonica).

Highly respected actor and musical performer JOHN WATERS wrote, narrates the story and sings the songs that conjure up a marvellously engaging adventure, inspired by a yarn he once heard of a bushman who was befriended by a cockatoo. Included in the CD booklet are all of John’s original pen drawings that illustrate the story. For more information, visit www.ozrecords.com.au (Du Monde Records/ AUSBUY 02)
