Woohoo! I got the first copy after New Years. Mom had to break open the box to get one for me and Pops was gracious enough to personalize it for me. He has a great set up pipes! I'm not sure when the tunes will hit itunes or the general market. They are so busy right now that they only have them at the shop for purchase. You could probably call them and have them mail one out to you.

Ooh, I want one. I'll have to try to pick one up when I go to Oahu in April. I love his voice in the video clips I have seen in the past.

Pops says that you everybody!
Hmm, regarding sound clips, no such luck yet. I'm going to see if pops is willing to put it on itunes, but I have the strange feeling that hell ask me to do it. Which is cool, but I should probably go learn how.

"Smile" and "My Funny Valentine" sound particularly good. Hmm, now I have to go look for tabs for "My Funny Valentine."
