About this release. Merl Saunders Format: Audio CD. New from. Used from. Audio CD, July 24, 1990. Verified Purchase. Wow, an instrumental synthesizer-driven album by the great bluesrocksoul daddy Merl Saunders It's hard to know what to think until you've heard it. I used this CD as part of the soundtrack while helping a friend through labor. We did some guided imagery as a relaxation technique and this music was PERFECT accompaniment to our visions of floating down a river through a forest. I listen to this CD when I need to change a hectic or upsetting day into a gentle, calming but uplifting evening. Gerry Cinnamon - The Bonny CD Album Released 17th April 2020. US New.
