Editorial Reviews

These are etched into the memories of so many, from the '30s (Yankees win fourth straight World Series) to 2004 ("The Curse" is over!). This 4-CD set-whose box looks like a slightly scuffed base-covers all the bases with original broadcasts (the above plus the "Shot Heard 'Round the World"; Willie Mays' "The Catch"; the homers of Mazeroski, Gibson and Bucky Dent); player remembrances (Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth, Jackie Robinson, Hank Aaron, Pete Rose); a CD of comedy, commercials and controversy, and one with baseball songs by Dylan, Fogerty, Nat King Cole, Count Basie a home run!

This set is amazing and I recommend it as a gift for anyone who you know has a great love for baseball. And I do mean GREAT - this is an exhaustive set and lots of the radio broadcasts preserved here are going to bring back memories for those have been fans of the game for a long time - altho I must admit I got a kick out of hearing some of the milestones of baseball as people must have heard them for the first time. Some great old and new baseball themed songs here as well - really this is a showcase for the national pastime and illustrates what a huge part of our lives this game was and still is.

Here's what I love about this box set - everything! It has all the tunes you would want that are related to music, but more importantly, it has the sound bites that will always be remembered. I have traveled to 17 MLB baseball stadiums and have used a video editing software to make a personal "documentary" of my trips (I did it for myself and friends I travel with). I used music and sound bites from this set to enhance my movie.

Simply put, this is just a great compilation. I have yet to find something better out there.

Only one CD with music, and that is essentially Rhino's "Baseball Greatest Hits." All songs have been previously released on other compilations. Steeerike ONE!

Packaging comes in box that looks like a base. Not very clever. Steerike TWO!

Overpriced!

Steerike THREE!

Fans will appreciate nostalgia evoked from listening to radio play-by-play calls, but THREE CDs are filled with radio calls, interviews, etc. Too much! More songs!

For baseball music, other options include Diamond Cuts (Vol. I through VIII) and "Baseball" documentary soundtrack.
