3.0 out of 5 stars Good performances of his most well-known works 13 Mar 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If like me you can't listen to The Blue Danube without cringing, then this is possibly not the collection for you. However, this is not the fault of the work itself, but of the world in which we live that shamelessly attaches it to banal and inappropriate images on the TV and elsewhere.
However, there is more than just TBD on this CD - there is a wealth of (in my mind) better works, chief among them the exquisite Tales of the Vienna Woods, and Roses from the South.
Sorry about the low rating, but I'm just not keen on the collection as it stands - among the gems is some terribly trivial pieces which may have been amusing at the time but are now just too tedious for words. But make your own mind up - in my opinion, this should be filed on the same shelf as chick flicks and Mills and Boone.

I ordered this CD as I just love the Blue Danube track and wanted to listen to it loud in my car. The CD contains a varied collection of tracks, many of which you will have heard previously and will enjoy; or should I say would have enjoyed if it wasn't for the poor sound quality. Nearly all the tracks on this CD were recorded in the late 1950's and early 1960's and lack the depth of sound, clarity and lack of distortion associated with more modern recordings. The producers of the CD have tried to spruce up the recordings with all the latest technology and I'm sure they've done a great job, though the sound still remains muffled and distorted in my view and I am not a hifi buff.
So buy this CD if you arn't too bothered about sound quality and like classic recordings. Don't buy this CD if you like crystal clear digital quality modern recordings.
If I knew then what I know now I would have avoided this CD and paid a little more for a more modern recording.
