How This Day Actually Turned Out - page 2

By now most attendees either left for the day or were scouting out a quick lunch, planning to return. So there I stood with Alan P as he considered all of the city names on SAE banner and wondered aloud "is that a real place?" I suggested it could be a typo. <g>

Now that I had the autograph and some wonderful chat time with AP himself, I had to decide whether to stick around or split. Innocently I asked, "So Alan... what were you planning to play in terms of surround music this afternoon?" (I'd figured it was DSOTM which we've all heard before)

"Actually I did have a few DSOTM cues but I also brought xxxxxxxxxxxx..."   RED ALERT! This is not commercially available in 5.1!

I try not to stutter... "uh, the whole album?"

"No just one track.... but we also did xxxxxxxxxxxx..."
