AllMusic Review by

A haunting, yet exhilarating sound experience, it was recorded by Leon Brocklehurst on various ocean expeditions. The majestic humpback grows to about 50 feet, with wing-like 14-foot flippers, and weighs around 50 tons. Side one records these "gentle giants" off the coast of Maui, while side two captures over 1000 porpoise, chattering and playing.
