If you were one of those who saw the original TV advertisments and bought the first Classic Rock album and then became hooked on this type musical interpretation of classic songs then you will like this. It is a faithful reporduction of the original 4 albums. Okay so they are not vinyl and don't open out in book form as with the first two and the Second Movement is not a blue vinyl but for ease of playing and not having to get up from you seat to turn the record over when the side has finished then these are great. I enjoyed these renditions again and can now listen in may car without the annoying "click" that I had grown to ignore on Pinball Wizard.

So it depends on your choice of music; you either like this sort of musis or you don't. At this price, though it is a cheap way to find out.

Give it a go. I really liked it.

It was many years ago that I first heard these albums. As someone who prefers to listen to classical music, I 'put my toe in the water' by deciding to try out these classical arrangements of classic pop tunes. I was delighted! Sadly, my tapes (remember them?) eventually stretched so much that the recordings were impossible to listen to. So, when I discovered that the albums were on CD and at a very reasonable price, I could not resist the temptation to purchase them. I'm glad I did! My daughters are now enjoying music that both displays the prowess of classical orchestras as well as hearing classic pop tunes for the first time.

5 out of 5 - i am thankful that i got the chance to buy it via amazon.uk, cause in Austria and Germany some ****** sellin similar boxsets for 100+ Euro. Although i missed GLORIA, it is a really great deal. And i loved the LSO Classic Rock project since i was a child - or better to say "i am not often proud to be a human, but when i am listening to such a breathtaking and wonderful music, then i am".

To many years ago I had the classic rock series in Vinyl.
Needless to say that over the years they disappeared somewhere.
House moving a few times tends to do that.
I was really pleased to see these on Amazon and could not resist buying them.
It was really good listening again to some old favourites played orchestral.
An excellent buy and very fast delivery.

I still have the original "Classic Rock" K-Tel LP released 1978, but sadly the years have been unkind to it, and it no longer plays.
I was very pleased to find these CD's. Disc one is that original album in full, despite the fact that the box and jewel-case inlay print omits to mention the 10th track "Sailing" which IS on the disc, so a very pleasant surprise.
The memories came flooding back. The quality of the recordings is excellent, well worth a listen. If you like Classical music, you'll love what the LSO have done with some of the most iconic tunes of the last 40 years.

All of these arrangements are good and some are outstanding. The volume needs to be set high to hear all the nuances of the music. Just sit back and let the melodies cascade over you.
