5.0 out of 5 stars A Bargain
The reviews here seem less than charitable given the price. You can go to a record shop but you will pay double in HMV. However, I agree that the Amazon track listing information is rather sparse, so here is what you get for your fiver:
CD1
Vivaldi- Concerto for Lute and Streings
Francis Cutting - Packington's Pound & Greensleeves.
John Dowland -...

3.0 out of 5 stars Easy listening
A good CD for those that just want some background music to listen to. He is however very good at his craft.

I cant give a formed opinion yet as I'm still getting into it. Probably be a favourable review though as the initial impression has been good.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Music - fantastic, can't transfer to mp3 though, 29 Feb 2012
By 
This review is from: The Ultimate Guitar Collection (Audio CD)
This is not a review of Julian Bream's music, others better qualified than I have already left their comments here.

The production of the embedded data on disc two is flawed. I ripped the discs using Windows Media on Windows 7 to my PC so that I could listen/copy the contents to an mp3 player. Disc 1 was fine, but disc 2 overwrote the first 14 tracks of disc one and removed the information from tracks 14-18.

I tried various ways of editing the information and finally succeeded in ripping both cds intact. Unfortunately, because I overwrote some of the information (like changing the number of the cd)... I experienced errors when trying to copy the files to my mp3 player.

So, many hours of tinkering & trying later, my conclusion is that I can only listen to disc 2 by shoving it into a cd player.

Hence the 3 stars

3.0 out of 5 stars Not inspiring., 15 Feb 2011

This review is from: The Ultimate Guitar Collection (Audio CD)
Given Julian's reputation I expected more 'emotion' from the tracks. Yes he is very skilled, and yes the CD is okay, but NOT as I had hoped I'm afraid.

1.0 out of 5 stars Mean Amazon; why no track names?, 19 Jun 2009
This review is from: The Ultimate Guitar Collection (Audio CD)
Why can't we know what tracks are on the albums? Give me a record shop anyday, Amazon just want to focus on their big offers on postage and delivery dates, gift tags, what other consumers bought etc. I just want to know what the track names are on the CD before I buy it especially on a compilation album, I am (was) going yo buy some music -why should I want a full size blow up of the album cover? GOODBYE.
