Why free...just pay and get it and be done with it. Throw Bob a bone, he gave you Angela's Theme. If you google something like "Angela's Theme sheet music", I'll bet you'll find it.

Here it is even cheaper than Busch's site:

Pick any key, and have it, Sibelius typeset, to print out on your printer in less that a minute, for less than five bucks. That's a pretty good deal; a professional transcriber/copyist would charge you at least ten times that much.

Pick a nice e-piano setting and you'll be Bob Jamesing by the end of the day.

Why not buy one of those "Best of Bob James" value-priced CDs for $10 or less, listen to the tune a couple times and transcribe it?

In addition to Angela (Theme From Taxi), you may end up with Nautilus, Storm King, Westchester Lady, Night Crawler and Touchdown. ;\)
