Kudos to Willjay:
To celebrate Shawn Lane's birthday today (he would have been 46), here's a beautiful, (until now) unbeliebably rare 'Piano/Keyboard orchestrated' track from Shawn's never released cd of "Movie Music" (a couple of the tunes are covers, but most of them are Shawn's original compositions).

This is an original piece written by, and played by Shawn.


It's nice to finally feel like i have some kind of 'permission' to share this track with you guys (Shawn's daughter just posted this track herself today, for her dads birthday).
