>Hey Dek-heads.

>The box from Corwood arrived on Friday, a day I barely remember as I 
>was laid up and delirious with about the worst flu I've had in twenty 
>years.  Over the weekend I got into it and was giddy with the 
>discovery.  You may or may not recall, I sent the order with no 
>particular expectations.  "You pick" was the note I sent with my check.

>What I got back was, I think, as close to an admitted "Best of" as 
>possible in such an unusual body of work.  There are no discernible 
>patterns to be seen, and no evidence of random pulling.  I think this 
>was a well-thought out and lovingly assembled retrospective.
