CD Cover

In the year 2001, Bob Balfour produced a CD of the organ for GSTOS played by Julliard-trained local organist Jerry Mendelson.  It was mastered from tapes of a live performance recorded by Bob during the 1970 ATOS convention. The CD features 20 never before released selections, 62 minutes of popular music with a touch of the classics.  (Copies are still available. To order, click on “recordings” on the main menu.)
