If there is a better value children's album out there than this, buy it!!! COSMIC ROCK is a compilation taken from the first 16 Aunties albums. The range of styles and the calibre of the song-writing is astonishing. There is something timeless about this music and even though the tracks were recorded years apart with different line-ups, it fits together seamlessly. In short, this is a bona-fide classic. Other Aunties albums will be available on CD baby later in the year. The Aunties are "world famous in New Zealand", having released 24 albums, been New Zealand's most successful performers-in-schools group and had a hit television series ('Aunties Alphabet'), which was broadcast 16 times, apparently a New Zealand record. CREDITS: Many excellent, well-known Kiwi musicians and singers have appeared on Aunties albums, often using Aunties pseudonyms.
