Can anyone tell me the name of the organist or recording: I believe it is a Dutch recording on a Dutch organ. My brain just crashed, and I cannot remember the organist's name, name of the album or anything.   Otherwise I would have checked the archives.   Please respond either directly to the chatline, or to the following email   address: Red Dirks@aol.com     Thanks,   Stan Krider

As a kid I eagerly consumed several of the volumes, and had my horizons greatly expanded as a result. I know the Walter Kraft Bach series was re-issued in part, but were any of the other recordings? Kraft's Buxtehude?     Yes, I now have most of the "Survey of the World's Greatest Organ Music", obtaining a few ca. 1969-71, and others as time passed. It is a valuable series indeed, especially the modern French volumes.   I've had the Walter Kraft Buxtehude since about 1968 in three Vox Boxes (3 discs each). Was this the original appearance of the series? I never listened to it much because the sound seems rather distant and hazy. Nice organ, nice acoustics, playing seemed fine by the standards of those days, yet the overall effect was unexciting. I preferred the Linder and Alain Buxtehude recordings as far as they went, but the Kraft was the most complete.   I also picked up the Kraft Bach series, once issued in a single box of a dozen or more discs for a very low price. I didn't expect them to be favorites, and they never were, but what the heck-- you can never have = too many complete Bach recordings (or editions).

Lots and lots of organ LPs on there at any given time. (it all depends on *just* how badly you want that George Montalba album...)   There are a few used record stores that still carry tons of LPs. If you = are anywhere in the mid-Atlantic region, don't miss the Princeton Record Exchange in Princeton N.J. when you get a chance.   When I lived in Washington State in the early 80s, visiting Seattle was always a treat because of the several used record stores in the university district, all within about a three-block area. The most interesting, although not the largest, was called Cellophane Square. They knew me as = the fellow who didn't come in very often but "bought out the store" whenever = he did. I hope that those shops are still there.   Another east coast mecca should be Berkshire Record Outlet, RR1, Lee, MA 01238. In the book trade, I think this kind of place would be called a remainder house. The merchandise is new, not used, but much of it is obscure or imported and offered at reduced (sometimes steeply reduced) prices. Last time I visited (around Thanksgiving), they still sold some = LPs as well as CDs. Their business is primarily by mail-order and now = Internet, but they also have a small show-room in front of their large warehouse to serve walk-in customers. Their URL is: www.broinc.com. (N.B. their = former URL, www.berkshirerecoutlet.com, is now a disgustingly officious porn = site. I had to telephone to get the correct Internet address, and the man on the phone said that he didn't know how this happened. Good thing I re-checked it before telling you!) Choral and organ music on British labels seem to = be a specialty. It's good for all of us to bookmark and visit from time to time (unless you are deliberately shielding yourself from temptation).   I'd be interested to hear of other possible sources.   Paul Emmons            
(back) Subject: RE: vinyl From: "Jonathan Orwig" <giwro@earthlink.net> Date: Fri, 1 Mar 2002 12:49:18 -0800   Used to be a place in Tucson called Jeff's Classical Record Shoppe that = did the same thing as Berkshire... I got lots of obscure stuff from them, = among which was the first live recording of Sorabji's Opus Clavicembalisticum!   Also got a nice recording of Lizst Ad Nos and P+F on BACH by Lionel = ROGG.... still my favorite recording...   Jonathan   > > I'd be interested to hear of other possible sources. > > Paul Emmons

Unfortunately in the process of moving and also in a flood those got lost.
