How interesting to run across this by accident, when I was looking for something else. My dad had this set in his record collection when I was small, and for some reason it fascinated me, maybe it was the cover, maybe it was the booklet too. I'm sure I heard the music at one time or another but when I was 5 or 6 it probably wasn't as fascinating to me as the cover.
