Audio sample : Sunshine Over Showers (unreleased song recorded on Dec 13th, 1975)

Donny Hathaway around 1975
Written by William Peterkin, Sunshine Over Showers was recorded on December 13, 1975 at Total Experience Studios, in Los Angeles, a studio founded by Lonnie Simmons, a Funk producer/manager/label owner who is best-known for his work with The Gap Band. This 4 minutes and 38 seconds song is a beautiful ballad with soft guitar & electric piano chords divided in three parts. At two-and-a-half minutes into the song, Donny briefly changes gear and morphs into a mid-tempo funk number before resuming its original tempo. Definitely, one of Donny Hathaway best studio performance and is included in the forthcoming great 4 CD box called Never My Love : The Anthology available worldwide on November 11th, 2013 in limited edition. Thank you, once again to Warner France for this sample.
