1970 Virgil Fox’s Greatest Hits
From the liner notes:

For this anthology, Westminster has sampled a small portion of Fox’s repertoire of 200 major works, including the last movement of Cesar Franck’s Grand Piece Symphonique, recorded on the Aeolian-Skinner organ in Philharmonic Hall, New York City. From the album of music performed on the John Wanamaker Organ in Philadelphia, we have selected Richard Wagner’s “Fanfare” from the “Good Friday Music” in Act III of Parsifal; and Edward Elgar’s  Pomp and Circumstance March No. 1 in D Major. Westminster completes the selections here with Wolfgang Mozart’s Fantasy in F Minor, K. 608, and Bach’s Prelude and Fugue in D.

"This recording of Virgil Fox 'at home' was actually made at the Hammond Castle. However, the Englewood home, organ stop list, and photos were used on the LP jacket because of problems Virgil was having at the Hammond Castle. This was told to me by Virgil himself when I was purchasing organ pipes from him, and grills from his floor that I now have in my home, from his Englewood house. Virgil always called me Little One, because I was just sixteen years old. My Father had driven me and the truck to East Palisade Avenue to pick everything up."

— Ray Correll
