"I bought this CD for the Slaughter on Tenth Avenue soundtrack ballet by Richard Rodgers and Lennie Hayton. But none of the tracks on this CD can be appreciated. It is a mono recording, and that immediately leaves you with a very incomplete sound. No amount of treble and bass adjustment can eliminate the awful tinny sound throughout the disc."

"The delightful narration of Gordon Jenkins' "Manhattan Tower" lasts but 16 minutes, but is worth the price of the disc; the balance of the disc is made up of fillers, each of which has something to do with New York. These include well-known pieces such as Lullaby of Broadway, Give My Regards to Broadway, and Forty Second Street. Artists include Bernstein, Cohan, Paul Whiteman, Jo Stafford, Guy Lombardo, and Frank Sinatra. The disc runs 75 minutes, and is Mono."
