All of the reviewers who are complaining about being 'tricked' by the cover really ought to read more carefully. This is a lovely sampler that features excellent pieces by famous composers, as well as some lesser known names that one doesn't encounter very often. My only complaint is that once again (as often happens with Amazon's classical samplers) the compositions are attributed to the conductor or soloist, with no mention of the composer. Here is a list of the composers featured on each track, for those who are interested:

1) Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach
2) Franz Joseph Haydn
3) Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
4) Carl Stamitz
5) Johann Baptist Vanhal
6) Johannes Brahms
7) Antonin Dvorak
8) Benjamin Godard
9) Edouard Lalo
10) Pyotr Il'yich Tchaikovsky

I came to this page for the awesome title pun, but stayed for the music. This album is great, provided that you have the minimal reading comprehension skills to know what you're getting. :)

I suppose it was too much trouble to read the ENTIRE title before deciding if this was a desirable download. IT WAS FREE!!!!! I guess such a feeling of spoiled and pampered entitlement now supersedes reading anything longer than a text message before processing the information. The packaging was tongue-in-cheek but apparently it was too much of a high-altitude fly-over for some on the ingrates who felt compelled to share their dim-witted opinions. Outstanding Music!!!

I'm someone who loves irony. That's why the "Freebie" MP3 album, "I Love the 70's" -- with the "Saturday Night Fever"-esque cover -- caught my eye!

Despite the "disco" cover, the album contains Classical hits from the 1770's and 1870's. While some selections are those you would hear on most mainstream Classical albums (such as the last movement of Brahm's Violin Concerto in D or Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1), most of the rest of the selections (Keyboard Sonata in B Minor, Adagio in E Major, etc.) are not as well-known to the average listener, but are nonetheless very beautiful, relaxing and well-performed. My only real complaint is that they don't list the composers along with the pieces on the track listing.

Just as you cannot judge a book by its cover, don't judge this CD by its cover, either. Go ahead, purchase this album, and you will be pleasantly surprised.
