From s1170796@giaec.cc.monash.edu.au (DANGERMAN (P. Grant))

    Well it has started.  After posting my article yesterday, I have been
    flooded with requests for Police songs in Tab.  So today I have sat down,
    in between lectures and typed in Roxanne for your playing pleasure.

    Since I am doing a number of songs, I would like a favour in return.  I
    would like a list of good quality bootlegs of Police concerts and where I
    can get a hold of them expecially in Australia.  That's the bargin, info
    for songs.

    Stay tuned for more songs.
