That sure is a specific cause. Maybe I'll start a Texas Polka History Database.

This is awesome, thanks gman.

I really like the collection of handwritten scores (with a couple from Jaki Byard! Whee!) I would never willingly give up computers for printing out part sheets (and transposing!) but seeing these does make me a bit sad that the scores left behind from future generations won't, by and large, have nearly as much character.
