Also, the paper foldout cover is a very nice touch. A matter of taste I suppose. I do however prefer Gould's later recordings. Contrapunctus VI on organ, performed by G. Nice to hear him playing organ, a nice compliment for any of G. This is a fantastic recording! It's so strange and yet so awesome to hear Gould playing the organ.
