@cosullivan Listened to W. Carlos as a kid (Walter and Wendy, so I just abbreviate to W.). Fell in love with her music. Loved Switched on Bach and its derivatives, but her Seasons album (forgot the name) and her Peter & The Wolf (with Weird Al!) are fantastic!

@xmanmonk Thanks I'll give a listen to the latter two. My uncle lent my mom 'Switched-On Bach' and his Jean-Jacques Perrey/Gershon Kingsley LPs. I played them more than she did.

@cosullivan When listening to Peter & The Wolf, keep your ear out for the added member of the entourage: Bob the Janitor. :)
