Re: Glenn Gould stamp


" Glenn Gould's Variations
Few could deny the effect of Gould's brilliance on the world of music. His
recordings of Bach's Goldberg Variations stunned audiences around the world.

Nifty!  But then why weren't they more careful with their musical
typesetting?  The second note is too low (almost looking like an F# instead
of a G), and the essential mordent on the third note is missing.  Then the
other lines of greyed musical notation below that line are not recognizably
from the Goldberg Variations at all....

GG's stamp finds itself in company with Pablum, Marshall McLuhan, Guy
Lombardo, IMAX, "Hockey Night in Canada," and "Women as Persons."  :)
