I'm trying to actually play "Jive Samba" and I can't seem to do it. (i do have the live version on my iPod..it's not downloaded to my library on here though - gee did I miss something?? I will admit I really don't know how to use this site..all of the music here isn't totally free or is it? Could've fooled me - DUH!!!)
