Just received this from the East Side Digital newsletter. It may be of
interest to list members. Quite interesting that the discs will also
contain a synth program and MIDI files!

WENDY CARLOS Switched-On Boxed Set (ESD 81422)

  Music that changed the world: a gorgeous collector’s deluxe edition of a
decade of revolutionary recordings by "original synth" Wendy Carlos. Hear
the actual master tapes for the first time, painstakingly transferred,
cleaned and optimized, using ultra-high fidelity 20-bit “Hi-D” sound.

“Carlos’s realization of the Fourth Brandenburg Concerto is, to put it
bluntly, the finest performance of any of the Brandenburgs—live, canned, or
intuited—I’ve ever heard.” —Glenn Gould

Collect the Grammy-award family of Switched-On Bach, which propelled the
synthesizer to fame in 1968 and became the first Platinum-selling classical
album, with The Well-Tempered Synthesizer, Switched-On Bach II, and the
Switched-On Brandenburgs.
