closed my eyes today and took a virtual walk through a mid 80s arcade. I accomplished
this seemingly impossible feat via the latest edition of GDG's Arcade Ambiance

arcade machine music, allowing me to identify a game here, a game there. But mostly
I allowed the sounds of a wonderful past time to simply wash over me. For veteran
gamers, this is mood audio of the first order."
