      This is a good'un, though not a match for his amazing Gene Simmons
      rant in St. Louis. I do hope that was taped....

      Mine was New Zealand pianist/guitarist/percussionist Peter Jefferies's
      _Closed Circuit_, which I liked so much I cheated and put on this
      year's list. Jefferies sounds a lot like John Cale in Cale's stately
      piano arpeggio mode (think Cale's version of Leonard Cohen's
      "Hallelujah" with a slightly gruffer voice), and the writing on this
      album (particularly the second half) is as warm and accessible as
      anything in his long career. (I also recommened his instrumental
      album _At Swim 2 Birds_ done with violist Jono Lonie.)

      This may be a dangerous question, Bill, but is there much you
      recommend off the Rhino version than an owner of the Ryko version and
      _Out of Our Idiot_ wouldn't already own? I'm probably going to get
      _Armed Forces_ one of these days for the Hollywood High tracks.
