I should add that "the complete five" of the Goldbergs are with 
accordion alone. The total number of hits on the Naxos site for the 
Goldbergs are far, far higher, including Gould 1954, 1955, 1981, 
Salzburg, Vancouver and the Goldberg interview with Tim Page.

Those who wants to hear someone playing "straight", like Gould, on accordion should seek out Hussong on Thorofon. He is available on the Naxos site, at least in Sweden. There you can find no less than five complete versions.
