When considering a tribute to the legend that was Shawn Lane, Lion Music discovered that due to an overwhelming interest from many artists, they would be able to compile enough quality material to release the tribute as two seperate cds, this is cd 2 of the set.
As is the case with the first Shawn Lane Remembered tribute, this cd is packed full with great songs and great performances by some known and not so well known musicians. Yet, as tributes go, these two cds have proven to be a cut above many others in that Shawn Lane was such a prodigious talent, undertaking any effort to pay homage to his music would not only involve a high degree of musicianship, and credible chops, but making a strong musical statement compostionally would be necessary to provide material worthy of Shawn Lane memory. So here we have a nice mixture of original and remakes of some of Shawn's material, done by a variety of artists, and not really a bad song in the bunch.
One thing hearing these cds has done is opened my attention to some artists that I have not heard of, Double Heart Project, Mistheria, Jon Paget, Richard Daude, Luis Moreno and Marcos De Ros, are amoung those that have heightened my interest in hearing more from these great talents. As for the rest of the artists, each presents themselves in a manner that will, if anything, provide fans of Shawn's music, a taste of the many sides of his most unique and global influence.
