Pre-show Music

Post by LisaBug2112 » Mon Aug 27, 2007 8:16 pm

What did everyone think of the pre-show music Neil chose this time? Not sure if there are more than 1 set of this music or not, ours was mostly all classic rock, & some real good stuff.

I enjoyed the songs. As you said, they were mostly classic rock. It is nice to get to hear what it is Neil is liking/listening to at the time he makes the CD.

I remember enjoying it, but I'm having trouble remembering what was there. I seem to remember some Pink Floyd and maybe some Yes?
