Re: GG: Original Jacket Collection

I've got one set from Amazon, just want it for collection of all Bach by
Gould, it's really pity that the set didn't include the English Suites and
French Suites.

However, one thing I have to mention is that there is one multimedia CD
inside, the disc can run on both PC or Mac, it contains the biography of Bach
and Gould, introduction of Fugue, artist job sheets.., music score of Fugue
of  No.1-9 that can play along, some video tracks about Fugue from the 'GG
Collection' and the liner notes of all discs.
