I was going to say, she looks and sounds pretty damn great for this being a recording that dropped 295 years ago…

Is it about the player or the composition itself? Player is indeed meh, but the composition is very good.

Ackshully, Bach and bock together are an even better. You might prefer JS with your fave, the smoky single malt and nice steak.

That beer label is very cool.

It's just so easy to give Bach a10 rating. I love it when RP blends classical into the mix. This followed Queen's Bohemian Rapsody. For a second I thought, I don't remember this part. Bill is the Blend master!

It sounds like he practiced more than the 2 minutes a day he wanted to record. Yes, 2 minutes actual.

I smiled hearing Bill pronouncing Bach. It was more like Baggggkh.

Nice suprise hearing Bach on RP. It's the music I grew up hearing it in church on organs and sometimes on a piano.
I had a friend who could play the fuga's very well on a young age. I still have professional musicians in my neighbourhood and occasional I hear a good representation of Bach's music. Often just played to pass time before the sermon starts on sunday. Having that in my mind I don't understand the importance of Glenn's work. Was he really that excellent or also eccentric and just lucky to be on the right spot on the right time to became rather famous?

Bach is wonderful. While we're on the subject of classical music, I think Debussy would fit in really well here at RP.
