Good ear.
Garth Hudson and Jon Lord both borrowed a few licks from this.

Black Sabbath to Bach.  That is 'eclectic'.

My little cousin played this piece of music in the church on our wedding. He was 8 or 9 and really did well. He is now 19 years old and plays like a pro. Good memories.

By the way: the epic end is missing! This is just the beginning and the end is even better.

That album cover pictures the organ in the Temple Square tabernacle in Salt Lake City, AKA the Mormon Tabernacle. I wonder if the selection played here was performed on that organ?

I owned this piece in the mid-70s, not from the "all the different organs" LP, but the  Q4 open reel version.. Had a quadraphonic outfit with large speakers all around..........oh yes.

This whole album is comprised of but this single toccata & fugue, something like 18 different versions, of which each was played on a different organ, and therefore a different cathedral in different towns throughout Europe.  It's hard to understate something as significantly as this album does — oh it is tremendous music and playing — because each organ is actually built into the cathedral.  The cathedral itself produces the final sound and to be able to walk in, to stand within such a sound machine and listen to this....  To some degree, each person in such a space will modify the sound somewhat and thereby would be of the sound.  A religious experience no doubt.

I remember listening to a story on NPR about organs (the big church types).  One thing that was said always stuck in mind as a really cool observation.  It was  "Organs are the most powerful things made by man that don't destroy things"  Not totally accurate of course, but it sure makes a point!

Hey Bill, is this from the E. Power Biggs collection?  That's a remarkable disk; vinyl only as far as I know.  I have it, and Biggs plays this one toccata on about 18 different ancient organs in 18 different cathedrals.  This is important, because each organ is specifically designed and built for a unique cathedral, so organs are called "organs" because they are internal to and essential for each house of worship's musical signature.  Biggs understood all this and traveled around Europe recording this one piece in these various ancient cathedrals in order to capture each one's unique sound by virtue of Bach's yardstick, and yes, the differences are quite surprising and enjoyable.  Very cool.

  Yes, please do.  Seems incomplete without it.  Plus I'd much rather listen to that than The Band playing Chest Fever after this.
