This is a song that can be played equally captivating on a piano accordion... just saying. :)

(This is no NO way a comment that deters any way from Acon and his abilities!)

Hi JerryPH,

Thank you! These are fantastic, too! Especially 1 & 3. Free bass seems to be more useful than button RH...

Nah, I don't think Free Bass will ever become the new treble clef, and it is an acquired taste, but anything that prevents the accordion from fading away is a GOOD thing!. :)

I agree: number 1 & 3 are really good.
Number 2 is a nice illustration for why I never want another accordion that does not have free bass. Not that I use it very often, but when I do there is just no way around it.

Spectacular for 1 & 3, exceptional sound and both really do the work justice, as Paul says the free bass is a real asset. Which as alluded to before, takes nothing from Acon's performance which I enjoyed greatly. I used to play this on an old church pedal organ, and never imagined accordion could serve the Toccata and Fugue so well.
