It played a key role in bringing synthesizers to popular music, which had until then been mostly used in experimental music. Switched-On Bach is ranked 9,720th in the overall chart, 676th in the 1960s, and 124th in the year 1968. Switched-On Bach by Walter Carlos Year: 1968 Overall rank: 9,720th.

Walter Carlos With The Assistance Of Benjamin Folkman - Switched-On Bach 8-Trk, Album. Wendy Carlos's Switched-On Bach is one of those rare novelty recordings that never gets boring. In the capable hands of Carlos, Bach's keyboard masterpieces sound like they were made for the otherworldly blurps, farts, and chimes of a Moog synthesizer. And, in a sense, they were. Great album, the memory's come flooding back when I play this as I purchased it many moons ago on a cassete tape wich I still own. Needless to say the sound is much improved and sounds really fresh.
