However, I have been very disappointed, and have now given the CDs away ! Most of the discs are of 'popular' music, and to a large extent miss out the excellent performances of classical music of all periods. In addition, alot of the tracks have a backing accompaniment. I was looking for the unaccompanied sound.
I should probably have looked mroe carefully at the CD track lists, and if they are your sort of music, this may be a good buy.
The shipping took much less time than it was estimated. Thanks Amazon!
