A Few Good Tunes

This is a little “mix tape” I put together - first of all for my esteemed former band-mates.
I clicked my way to YouTube and tried to find the original versions of the various songs that were part of our repertoires.


I tried to seek out the less well known tunes. However -

YouTube is a vast resource and eventually it kind of got out of hand. 


 Look for ways to skip the ads when present.

After listening to a tune - Use your back buttonto come back here.
