A really great collection for Astaire fans!

"I looked all over for a collection that has the songs the way they sound in the movies.
Before I got this one I bought one that looked like "the real thing" but when I played it I found that they were different - later - arrangements, not the originals.
As far as these ears can hear, these are the original recordings as heard in the movies. As to sound quality, I don't suppose they are the highest fidelity in the world, but they sound good to me. I just care that they sound decent and they are the original recordings not later re-interpretations with different musicians and arrangements.
There is one other collection that looks good and may have more of the original recordings - also available in mp3 format here - but I have not heard that one yet so I don't know.
As to this one, I give it Five Stars - because it sounds like the movies, with tapping and all!"
