Overview

Boasting ten tracks, two of which are easy listening treatments of overtures by Arthur Fiedler & the Boston Pops Orchestra, the disc offers practically no information about the sources of the tracks, which come from deep within the archives of Universal Music. Only a few miscellaneous factoids accompany some of the tracks. The renditions are often effective, particularly Ethel Merman's readings of "I Got Rhythm" and "Embraceable You" (which were done in the '40s, by the way), but it's hard to imagine who the intended consumer of a cut-rate collection like this is supposed to be.
