Don't get me wrong. Dinah's voice is incredible in every song. However, the first nine songs are taken from mono records, so the sound quality is bad. The last nine songs are in stereo and sound great. Play the first song from the samples and you'll hear hissing. I bought this and found out when I played it. So, you've been warned.
