Notes and Editorial Reviews

There’s hardly a dull moment, and while sticklers for literal interpretation will likely turn up their noses, those who relish individual interpretation will have a ball. Aside from one or two tape glitches, the sound is good for its age and the annotation both comprehensive and interesting.
