 Somewhat disappointing December 28, 2013 By C. Quade (Kelowna, BC) See All My Reviews "This was disappointing, mainly because as a novice I didn't appreciate that 'transcription' meant that the recording wasn't using the organ as originally prescribed. The recording was also disappointing in that the bass playing was muddy and ill defined." Report Abuse
