    The story behind the lead tune on # 9 "Gary Owen" is that Bobby was
    playing this tune at at a Games, when a vet approached and told him
    that his son had served in Vietnam.  Seems he and his comrades were
    trapped out in the field and a chopper was sent to find them.  When
    the chopper arrived, they were blasting out the tune "Gary Owen".
