Not Complete, but definitely a good-buy boxset!!!
on 10 April 2012
Whoever that labeled this compilation as "THE COMPLETE" Collection is dead wrong. Even if one confines to only tracks recorded for the British "DECCA" or the American "LONDON" label, there are still many tracks that are missing. For example,the tracks "Stardust", "Around the World", "Try To Remember","Misty", etc., which are included in another compilation album called "THE VERY BEST OF MANTOVANI" (DECCA 460-040-2), cannot be found in the present collection.
Nevertheless, if you love Mantovani's unique Strings, and his quasi-classical orchestral arrangements to some of the beautiful melodies ever written in pop music, this very inexpensive box set is highly recommended. The mere fact that all the tracks from the album "MUSIC FROM THE FILMS" (recorded with the duo pianists Rawicz & Landauer) are included is worth the price of this box set.
