Shaun Furlong programmed the synthesizers used while recording Harry Nilsson's 1975 album Duit on Mon Dei.


Furlong also worked with Nilsson on other tracks, demos which never made it to released material. He provided flying saucer sounds for an unreleased version of "The Flying Saucer Song."


Furlong is credited for his synthesizer work on Smokey Robinson's A Quiet Storm album. He contributed to The Carpenters "Sailing on the Tide," Billy Joel's "Captain Jack," and other recordings.


The "strings" featured in the Seals and Crofts song "Sunrise" are actually Furlong playing the synthesizer.


A little anecdote: One night during playback Harry was whistling some ideas during the fade of a song (don't remember which one). I, being the "synthesizer guy," asked hopefully, "Are you thinking about a synthesizer part there?"
"No," he said, smiling. "I was thinking about whistling."
