Strictly for Music Lovers [Box Set]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Huey
Strictly for Music Lovers is a four-CD, 95-track box set anthology that provides the most extensive overview of Spike Jones' career yet assembled on CD. It contains most but not quite all of the tracks included on RCA's 1999 single-disc Greatest Hits and Rhino's 1994 double-disc Musical Depreciation Revue: The Spike Jones Anthology, both excellent compilations in their own right. However, for those wanting a more thorough, detailed survey of Jones' groundbreaking comedy recordings, Strictly for Music Lovers is an ideal choice.
