Without looking it up I don't know which one he wrote first but they are both from the same period.

Nothing else from that era - or before - has the gravitas or the ambition of those two.


Vindicated!!

In the Heat of the Morning would be a contender bar a weak production and a few lines that are way too cheesy.
