Narada Decade: The Anniversary Collection

Richard Souther's "The Long Riders" builds a surging melody from synths, while David Lanz "Leaves on the Seine" is a contemplative piano piece that's as quiet and drifting as its title suggests.

Though everything on this set has been previously released, fans of Narada or any of its artists might enjoy having the songs in one convenient location.
