I'd forgotten how much remained in the 55-minute version. The longer version of "American Tongues" was previewed at an ADS meeting some time ago, and later on shorter versions were made for wider distribution. The next time you view the 55-minute version, notice that at the end there are a few faces of people who didn't have big partsin the video; they all had longer parts in the original. ("longer parts," as if they were actors) DMLance
