I purchased this 5 CD set as required for school. The price was great and the shipping was prompt. The problem is with the discs. They are labeled correctly, but the content is wrong. Disc 1 and 5 are the same. Disc 2 and 4 are the same. So essentially, I didnt get CD's 2 and 5. As a result I will likely not pass the course or be forced to drop.. Thanks for the great "deal"..

The CD set was amazing to listen to. I love the quality and variety of the different genres. I would have loved to have kept the set, unfortunately, the manufacturer duplicated two of the CD's which meant an entire CD did not contain the music stated. I contacted the manufacturer, exchanged the item for another and found it was also the same. Unfortunately, Amazon, got a shipment of erred product. When they fix the problem...I would love to have this set.

I was very disappointed about the product. There was suppose to be 5 cds but only 4 being sent. The seller wrote a little note said that cd #4 is missing yet did not inform on the advertising. CD #1 was being record over a couple of times. There was several part of the cd missed with different kind of music. People like this would ruin the reputation of the site.

It was very high quality, it shipped on time, and the CD was organized to make it very easy to memorize the music examples for the class.
I personally enjoyed the selections, too. They're worth listening to, even if they weren't required. :)

I needed the CD's for class, the shipping was fast and the person I talked with on the phone helped me with getting the right set of CD's. I will use the same seller next time I need text books or CD's

... but the cds don't provide the right information to your computer when you put the songs on it. Titles are messed up, mixed around, some of the songs have no name..
