    Well, I woulda done, JHC, but it would only have been to say that I find all that type of thing distracting.

    I remember how disappointed I was to find out that Black Angels had something to do with the Vietnam War and how relieved I was to find that that connection was made by Crumb late in the process of writing the piece.

    But that's just me. I just prefer to have as little between me and the sounds as is possible. (And I've always been that way. When I was first starting out, I faithfully read all the program notes and as many books as I could find. After some frustrating experiences trying to match what I read with what I was hearing, I just dispensed with the words and listened to the music.)

    There! Now you know a tiny bit more about me and absolutely nothing more about Black Angels!!

    Well I agree that the music is more important than the reason but what I meant was the construction of the piece, and I do know a bit more about Black Angels now whether or not it has any effect on my assessment of the work is another matter altogether.
