The Alan Parsons Project : Lucifer : playz....  Except for the Big Chief & Cobra-227,who were dressed in Flight Coveralls,the rest of the Brass hung their Class-A Uniform Jackets by the door,loosened their Ties and took stools at the Bar. After I cajoled him into taking a wee taste-test,even Chaplain Doherty had to agree that UHU Pilsner matched the Smoked Mackerel Dip's palate,so I drew him a Half-Pint to see him through the Appetizers,then settled in across from our Guests over the big sink to peel & vein 12kilos(25pounds) of 16-20count 'Jumbo Shrimp'.
