Ino Hidefumi – Living Message: This is an instrumental album out of Japan. It is my all time favorite work album in fact. In fact about the only time I listen to this album is while I am working.

It may be hard to find, but this is the internet age so no excuses!

The purpose of editing can be to trim out some sections, add titles or transactions. At that point, you can add background music of your choice.
