Misc. Notes:

600dpi. *Associated Music copyright claim. Not clean copies. The original copies are from excessive use, taped up parts held together and had lots of markings. Unfortunately there was no way to prevent the artifacts on the copies. Best to refer to full score for clarification of questionable measures from the scans of these parts. Tape overlaps the parts on some pages.
