Switched-On Bach is the first studio album by the American composer Wendy Carlos, released under her birth name Walter Carlos in October 1968 by Columbia Records.

Wendy Carlos had come up with an artistically valid and musically legitimate approach to the most tradition-bound of all classical music that made it not only palatable but exciting to a generation of listeners more inclined toward the Beatles than Beethoven (much less Bach)

Released October 1968. Switched-On Bach Tracklist. 1. Sinfonia to Cantata No. 29 Lyrics. 2. Air on a G String Lyrics. About Switched-On Bach. Bearing Carlos' original name of Walter Carlos, the album was conceived by Carlos not as an attempt to revive Bach but because she was dissatisfied with the use of electronic instruments before 1968 and wanted to use them to play appealing music. The album was a smash, peaking at No. 10 on the Billboard chart, staying at the top of Billboard’s classical chart for three years, being certified platinum, and winning three Grammy Awards.
