This collection of recordings, from FDR to Reagan, and although nothing "earth shaking" is revealed, it is still an interesting collection. The one thing that detracts from the item is the packaging of the compact discs; which could have been better. A set of sleeves, to hold the discs better (in the cardboard sleeve, instead of "slots", which allow the discs to slide (especially when shipped by mail) and puts scratches on the discs [which may (or may not) result in "dropouts and defects"] in the discs [particularly with the early (Roosevelt) recordings, it's hard to tell)]. Otherwise, a nice item for presidential historians and anyone curious about the Presidency of our nation.
