I think it's one of the best recordings i've heard. I don't know if it has ever been released on CD, and I'd like to know it. If you're a collector of Bach's rarities you'll love it as I love it myself. The combination of the two kotos and the shakuhachi has the best results. Try the "Little" fugue in G min. It's beautiful.

I owned this album on vinyl back in the 1970's and I remember it fondly. If it ever comes out on cd I would definitely buy it.
