Switched-On Bach II is a musical album by Wendy Carlos, originally released under her birth name, Walter Carlos, in 1973 on Columbia Records and produced by Carlos and Rachel Elkind and is a sequel to the 1968 album Switched-On Bach.

Talking about Switched-On Bach II, American Record Guide in 2000 said "Switched-On Bach II has the Badinerie, Minuet, and Bourrée from Bach's orchestral suite in B minor, the Inventions in A and A minor, 'Sheep May Safely Graze,' four little pieces from Anna Magdalena's Notebook (including 'Bist du bei mir'), and Brandenburg 5."

In February 1974, Billboard reported that the album sold over 70,000 copies in its first five weeks of release.[1]


All composed by Johann Sebastian Bach (except that the four pieces from the Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach are either doubtful or spurious):
