Being there when this was made and seeing it twenty years + later was a little melancholy- the promise is always there in its massive structure - never delicate or pretty - finesse is/was never its long suit. Lengthy but a little hard for a generous year.

Nice little halfy to end the night! Maybe too much power for a night cap...for school night anyway.
