Gotta love the release date ....1722 .... Only seen on a previous version of the RP website 

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

{#Cheesygrin} {#Lol}
I'm giving it a 9, it's just being played a bit slower than I'm used to

Yes. Totally.

 
PSD just because of the technical issues.
Awesome segue from Queen, Bill!
I vaguely remember some Bob Fripp version?

Ach Bach....always great!{#Clap}{#Clap}{#Clap} Though there are better players, Bach is Bach.

Wow, that was terrible.  I actually had a visceral reaction to that protracted monotony.  Should be titled "Prelude to suicide."

 
Is it about the player or the composition itself? Player is indeed meh, but the composition is very good.
A great follow up for this would be Wicked Little Town.

Love the release date! Accurate, but I'd also like to know when the artist recorded this version! Nicely played. It's a fun piece even for amateurs like me.

Very pretty. This "Bach" dude could become famous.
G-O-D. 
Only piece from the WTC I have learned (so far).

I prefer the beer:

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.  
Released 1722.
Guess back then  CD  was Choir Diplomatique.
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!

Al Franken as Stuart Smalley

Stuart Smalley V/O: I deserve good things. I am entitled to my share of happiness. I refuse to beat myself up. I am attractive person. I am fun to be with. I listen to Radio Paradise. I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and, doggonit, people like me!

Announcer: "Daily Affirmation with Stuart Smalley". Stuart Smalley is a caring nurturer, a member of several 12-step programs, but not a licensed therapist. He is, however, a U.S Senator for the state of Minnesota, so suck on that. 

 
Ahhh, where did you hear that?! On the internet?
