("behind the eight ball" by eschipul)



The next segment of « Octoccata » is entitled « Reoctoverture. » Basically, this section is a reprise of the introduction, hence the name, as it restates the theme presented therein, albeit through new and generally heavier variations.


The beginning of this fifth movement is intended as a tribute to Gentle Giant as it mirrors the way in which various fragmentary parts progressively recreate the main theme after the middle section of « Proclamation » (from « The Power and the Glory »).


As you have probably guessed by now, our adamant seller is still praising the merits of O·c·t·a·T·o·n·i·c, that most wonderous of drinks, as the troubles it addresses he continues to enumerate...
