John, the intent of my comment may have been hard to get at first. I should have added, ''Great, or neat, or imaginative,'' after not finding other comments of substance, and singled out a piece or two. I was thinking of the transition to Aronson's ''32-one'' of Rolling Kings. Michael Howe's comment says there are a dozen ideas good enough for an entire CV in Existentialist.
