    ...beneath pascal comelade & joseph racaille, penguin cafe orchestra-leader
    simon jeffes (1949-97) is perhaps the greatest european composer coming out
    of the "pop-art". all his 5 carefully recorded studio albums are
    masterpieces. beloved by children of all ages! joyful, charming & heartful.
    erik satie would be proud of all his youngsters today...

      Just might be their best offering. An exquisitely programmed testament to Plato's transcendentals.
