Here's what I meant to say....before I hit the send button unexpectedly:

In my not so expert opinion, I dig the hell out of William Clarke's
vocals, more and more every time I get lucky enough to remember to
pop in any one of his discs. I can't understand why Hadley can't hear
it like I do--but that's his tough luck. Undistiquished, my ass.<s>
