Many of you seemed to enjoy the Polar Bear Band music that Mike Nease used for his video.  He digitized this music several years ago using my computer and an old turntable and preamp that I had laying around the house. It's available in "the cloud" for you to download and listen to if you're interested at the following link: https://app.box.com/s/mc0ipj1uf52gr9a3oyvw   Enjoy the band, under the direction of Ron Wood.  The recording by the same.
