"I picked this up in a 50-cent cutout bin with no sleeve or case about 8 years ago. It's an interesting mix of selections, from serious classical (Rachmaninoff) to jazz (Ellington) to pop adaptations (Flashdance theme). The latter is actually one of the more intriguing cuts on the disc. Though I wouldn't rank it as "one of the world's finest sounding recordings", it's a rousing orchestral arrangement of the Flashdance theme conducted by its composer, Giorgio Moroder. If all you've ever heard is the Irene Cara radio hit, it will make you appreciate this song in a new light. The sound quality of the rest of the disc is superb, esp. "The Magnificent Seven" theme, which makes a nice audio system demonstration track."
