This beautiful piece was recorded by Rainbow on My Wrist for a Sarah Tartakover short film. It's called, "I cried the day John Lennon died" and was recorded in May 2011 at the wonderful Hume Studio S in Sunbury, which is part of the Sunbury Youth Centre. That's John Edgar sitting in on piano, and the track was expertly engineered and co-produced by the mercurial Scott Blackman - sit back and enjoy!
