This 2 disc collection is fine. It has the best of the Columbia Music recordings, and only songs from that label. It contains a nice 50+ page color booklet with background info on each song. Most of the songs are from the 1950s. It runs from 1930s to 1997 in the dates of the shows. Some of the early songs sound like record quality, not CD. Those are some things you should know. It is a nice collection however. It is primarily for those interested in the recordings from the 50s and 60s.
