    One of the best. -Incidentally, Moos, a friend of mine in the UK had a second wife (the third wife seems to have worked out) who enjoyed making love to music. Being Russian, she liked Glazunov, Liadov, Rimsky-Korsakov. And she also introduced him to making love to Youssou N’Dour. Well, I don’t really get the Russian crowd, but the galloping rhythms of Mbalax? A perfect match.
