Sampler CDs are usually under-rated, possibly because they end up in bargain bins. But they are often the most enjoyable albums, because they present a variety of fine recordings from older catalogs. I first heard FOR A RAINY DAY when we carried it at my store, and I played the demo several times a week. Customers who heard it always bought it.
Don't let the title fool you, these pieces aren't sad. Even when they're melancholy, they express bright emotions too. This perfomance of "The Lark Ascending" is my favorite, the absolute Must Buy if you're shopping for MP3 downloads. Otherwise, spend a little money on this CD. I promise, you'll play it often.
