You heard as a student about Paul Revere's ride...
He rode his horse to the first house and a woman appeared at the window. He shouted, "Is your husband at home?"
She replied, "Yes."
"Tell him the British are coming!"
This happened at several more houses, until one woman answered, "No."
Revere said, "Whoa!"

"Rhapsody" is a particularly nice item on Disc 1 - in good sound as well. It sounds to me like he is working with "I Can't Get Started" here but moves quite far from it in a very unique and beautiful manner.
