Many of these songs are receiving much radio play, placing Ray in the top 100 artists 'most played' worldwide radio lists, along with his other releases. The lists are for independent and major artists, and Ray was actually ahead of Carrie Underwood, for January (#46)and February (#83) 2007, out of over 2,500 artists. Most of the songs on this Morrhythm Records release are also on Ray's self-released CD, 'It's Just Life'. They were all re-mastered and can also be found at OutstandingMusic.com, along with other CD's by Ray. This is a first for Ray, in that not only has he written and sang all the songs as usual, but he also played (except for the drums), recorded, mixed, and produced it all. It is his own personal favorite CD, but what makes it very special to him however, is that the drum tracks all were played so superbly by his son, Raymond M. Lani. The songs are mostly pop and adult contemporary, with some country, rock, and blues mixed in. A top five finalist in the Song Of The Year Contest, "Not A Day Goes By", is a song as his son likes to call it, "gitchy". "It's All In The Eyes" is a "bouncy, jazzy" song, that is very catchy and with cool lyrics. "It's Just Life" is that "Beatley" type of rock/pop song, that also has meaningful lyrics, as do many of Ray's songs. Very special to Ray are "Precious" and "The Child Within", and one listen will tell you why. "The Lake" is a beautiful ballad written about the lake on the cover photos. For country lovers there is, "It's A Way Of Life", a country/rockabilly up-tempo song about life, and the country/rocker, "Names On The Headstones, Faces On The Wall". And for blues fans, there is "The Same Ole Sun", which also can be a "teaching" song for children. Listen and see why? For Ray's most requested song at live performances, check out the 'unplugged' version of 'Just A Hug'. Please check out Ray's other CD's.
