"A Salty Dog" was just as brilliant and atmospheric...and nowhere near as derivative either.
"Conquistador" was also great.
Loved PH I did.

Indeed. Another great track, but possibly a bit too much "WSoP" like to quite make my own top three...perhaps a bit too much like the "obligatory follow up single".
Nevertheless I doff my hat to your fine musical taste and knowledge sirrah.
