4.0 out of 5 stars As good a starting point for Bernstein that you'll get.
This is a very good compilation indeed. The versions of the compositions are for the most part very well performed and in some cases, exceptional.
The themes from To Kill A Mockingbird, Ghostbusters, Halellujah Trail & The Man With The Golden Arm are worth the purchase price alone.

The themes from To Kill A Mockingbird, Ghostbusters, Halellujah Trail & The Man With The Golden Arm are worth the purchase price alone.
However, if it's the definitive versions of the 'hits' (The Magnificent Seven & The Great Escape) that you want, then you might be advised to look elsewhere. The Magnificent Seven in particular is very weak indeed & it starts the whole compilation!
But don't let that put you off buying this set. It's very impressive in quality & quantity.
