Speaking of the the “upside down” bass button, it seems it's so because Al's accordion has the key upside down. :accordion:

The designer's post:

been seeing fans ask about the “upside down” BASS key-yes that is correct- we painstaking researched through photos from Bermuda to replicate Al’s specific accordion which had that very upside down key.

Yeah, thanks for that tweet and info about the 'misprint'. Very cool!

I've had that issue of Keyboard magazine since it came out. Here's a scan where I zoomed in on the buttons: https://imgur.com/fPa7Uls

One thing I've found that with the set that I don't like - one of the few "errors" so to speak in Al's catalogue that's always bugged me is still there. I was hoping (and assumed) it would be fixed wit the remasters. In It's All About The Pentiums, there's a little "blip" at about 1:27/1:28 in. Anyone else hear it or am I just going insane?

It's not there when I watch the music video, only when I listen to it on CD or in my library.
Is it about my cube?

I've listened to two different versions I have, and don't hear anything unusual there.
