An interesting idea, but one keeps asking for more...

"This CD is a reduced version of a double LP album from the 60's dedicated to Oscar-winning songs. It's been out of print for a long time. I felt robbed when I saw that they only included 14 of the 33 original selections. This is the main problem with record companies (and RCA is no exception): why don't they give us the whole original material, with the original liner notes, and so on? After all, a CD can have 70+ minutes of music (the equivalent to 2 standard LPs). I ended up buying it because I like this album very much, and I'm a longtime fan of Mr. Mancini. The tune I enjoy most is "On the Atchison...", because Mr. Mancini managed (as usual) to make us listen to a well known song as if it were the first time we were hearing it. It's a must for those who enjoy Mr. Mancini's artistry, but the record company still owes us a real, complete re-issue of the original album. Then it will get a 10."
Just love Mancini!

"I used to have this album as an 8 track cassette, and I have really missed listening to it. It has so many famous songs on it and they are arranged and performed as easy listening songs."
