a) I always thought it was cool that you wrote a perfect Fastbacks song, then they eventually covered it.

b) What piece is that initial harpsichord ditty from? It's been driving me crazy for years.

c) I've always wondered if Kurt Bloch was a big Toy Dolls fan. Algar & Bloch have similar lead styling.

There's a slight difference in the original guitar solo that I love, which if Kurt had played it would have occurred between the riffs of 2:01 and then immediately following at 2:04 in the Fastbacks version. As it is, he plays the same riff twice, without the cool change Frank makes, which is probably called "inverting the relative minor" or something. All of this is to say that "Book of Revelation" is an outstanding song over which I have no reservations about getting so nerdy.
