I think we must remember that what we have here are two completely
different worlds having an apparently erogenous contact via technology.
The aesthetic, ideological and musical links between these two extremes is
even more tenuous than that between Rubenstein and Les Dawson or Shaking
Stevens' keyboard player, even though they all play the piano!

THAT is not to say anything to even minutely devalue any of them -
personally I have heard Rubenstein murdering Schubert and HATED it. I
laughed at Les Dawson and danced to Shaking Stevens.
