    Wow! I'll keep this music forever...

    What a beautiful collection and well worth the amazingly low price! Includes two color booklets and four jewel boxed CD's, with a total of 100 classics! A very nice addition to the collection and listening enjoyment. It brings back so many unforgettable memories, at the touch of my fingers.
