Notes

from the back cover:

<i>What is your favorite London sound and why?</i> The response to this simple question is as varied and extraordinary as the city itself. This fascinating CD reveals the London of the ear, rather than that of the eye. A myriad of places and experiences, familiar and obscure, are brought to life in this stricking collection - from Big Ben to bagel bars, from songbirds to slamming doors, from thunder cutting through the sky to the eternal uproar of the city's soundscape. These are your favorite London sounds.
