by Ray DoRayMeFa It was the late 1980s, and my Lady told me excitedly about a new musician named Yanni. A few listens later, I, too, was absorbed into the masterful and sweeping musical inspirations.  My exhilaration overcame my innate cheapness and I bought not one, but two, of those newfangled silvery marvels of technology […]
