I was looking at Amazon the other day and was surprised to see five different vendors selling the Columbia/Biggs SACD of four Bach Toccatas played on four organs; the cheapest one was ca. $250, and the most expensive one over $500. The whole series of those single layer SONY SACDs from the late '90s was being offered at prices no lower than $50. I didn't realize they were so rare.

Oh and as for Angel,the ones to look for are the ones that were either pressed in Germany,or the US issues,that are translucent grey,brown,or purple when held to light.There are some inferior record club pressings out there.
