As a friend of mine put it, "I much prefer heroin Bill to cocaine Bill." Sad but probably an element of truth.

I agree with you about Undercurrent's lack of gel, with the exception of "My Funny Valentine," which is one of my favorite all-time improvised counterpoint tracks, and rescued that song from sheer hatred for me.
