I agree. Great value for money, especially if like me you don't have too much of the content already. I could pick a few highlights but it's really all good. I've had mine about a month now and I've been listening to it extensively.

Here's the relevant paragraph on the sound quality:

"Sadly, Mancini’s scores have been shockingly underrepresented on CD. Most of the big hits were briefly available on excellent sounding Spanish RCA CDs. Charade and Breakfast at Tiffany’s were released on JVC XRCDs. The Pink Panther and Breakfast at Tiffany’s are available on Speakers Corner LPs that must be heard to be believed. The Pink Panther is also still available on an RCA (Buddha) CD. The complete dramatic soundtrack for Breakfast at Tiffany’s, including Audrey Hepburn singing “Moon River” in mono, has been released by Intrada. This recording presents a completely different perspective of the music as it demonstrates Mancini’s ability to write dramatic underscore. All of those CDs and LPs, if you can find them, are sonically preferable to The Classic Soundtrack Collection by a considerable margin. However, this collection is valuable because it is the only available collection of the majority of Mancini’s important scores, most of which are difficult or impossible to find on CD now, so it will be desirable for Mancini’s many fans despite the disappointing sound."
