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):
