Great songs, terrible sound quality

"It grieves me to give a Bing Crosby selection a paltry two stars, but the quality of this CD is abysmal. I am convinced that someone merely stuck a cheap tape recorder in front of a TV playing this classic movie and then marketed this pale imitation of the original soundtrack.The scratches, skipped notes and hideous tonal quality are reminiscent of a beat up old 78 record. What a disappointment considering this disc contains some hard-to-locate Bing songs like "I'll Capture her Heart" and "I've Got Plenty to be Thankful For." You might as well buy the VHS version of Holiday Inn and make your own recording from the film. This CD's quality is the nadir of listening experiences!"
Astaire, Berlin, and Crosby, a powerful ABC!

"If you don't have it, GET IT! This is the soundtrack to the delightful
1942 musical "Holiday Inn", a Bing and Fred team-up
triumph. This is the film that introduced "White Christmas",
Bing's signature song.Obstensively a Christmas movie, this one can
be enjoyed at any time of year, as Christmas serves as the
"book-ends" for a year's worth of Berlin tunes (except
Halloween... they left that one out of the movie for some
reason).The songs are intoxicating and contageous! You'll find
yourself humming some of these cuts long after you've put the CD on
the shelf."Holiday Inn" is not to be missed, but it is
sure to be cherished once you have a look, and a listen.
Ahh! Those 78 RPMs

"Yes, The sound is not up to todays standards. Get Real!
It would have to mean there were no improvements in 60 years!
Now, they could have doctored it a little, but would
that have improved it? Not necessarily. I remember some pretty
creepy sounding "Electronic Stereo" albums in the '60s.
If you want better sound you could rip the CD and run your own
favorite sound hacking program.
But emough of that.
The performances on this CD are exactly what was on my mother's 78 RPM Album
(A real album not a record) which she played over and over. The joy is in the nostalgia.
4 stars plus 1 just for being available"
