Yeah, Mark, but is it Spinach Music (i.e. good for you, but not really that enjoyable)? Totally loose fusion from the 70's scares me.

OK, how freaky!!?? I was listening to Glenn Gould's Goldberg Variations, the 1981 version last night too! I've got the double CD set that has the 1951 version as well. I love the 1981 version and tend to try to listen for Gould's humming! Amazing recording by an incredible player.

I know! So much humming! I had a moment when I first realized it was him humming where I thought there was something wrong with my beloved M60s. Then I figured out it was him humming. I saw David Helfgott perform at Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto years ago and he hummed loudly on stage.

But I agree with you about the versions. The 1981 version clearly shows how he matured over the decades. I bought that set in order to be able to hear that growth. But I rarely listen to the original now.

Tonight I listened to Radiohead's The Bends CD and now have Maria McKee's Peddlin' Dreams on. Wonderful sounding on tubes.

Interesting... I kind of prefer the '51 version because of the wild, reckless speed with which he takes some of the passages.

I'm listening to tracks from the new Pink Floyd mega box set "Oh, By the Way" on pinkfloyd.com. It's got a tastefully done (shocker!) flash interface.

It's reminding me how woefully inadequate my Pink Floyd collection is.

I can see where the '51 version would be called "wild." I guess I like the subtlety of the '81 version. Somehow how it feels like it was his final masterpiece - or maybe I'm projecting since it kind of was.

Yeah, Zoe, you certainly don't have to try very hard to listen to the humming! As you may know, Glenn's mother taught him to play the piano, and she always had him hum as a teaching aid. He never stopped.

OK, just need to correct myself - it's 1955, not 1951. Sorry!
