5.0 out of 5 stars Much better than expected - complete bargain November 19, 2011
By BrentH
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
At the time of this review there are only two other reviews of this album and they both are very negative of this collection. Also, the price on this collection is only $0.99, which is the price I bought it for. $0.99 for 99 songs?!?! Seriously, that is an amazing value.

To be honest I had no idea there was Thanksgiving music and really this might just be an excuse by the music label to throw together a lot of light fare classical tunes from their catalog to generate a product to capitalize on holiday shoppers. Well, thank goodness for capitalism as this is a great compilation.

The performances are solid as are the recordings. I'm not really sure why the other reviewers where so harsh. If you want the really good performances of classical music, those recordings will always sell at a premium. For the purpose this collection serves - which is to provide appropriate background music to a family Thanksgiving feast - I can't imagine the need to look elsewhere. That being said, it's not Thanksgiving as I write this and yet I'm enjoying listening to this collection now. My iTunes tells me I have 6.5 days worth of just Classical music in my collection, a collection that started 25 years ago. Yet surprising, there is a lot of material featured here I don't previously have or have listened to before.

The typical compliant that "best of" or budget compilations have also exists here - full works are not provided, just certain movements. However, 99% of your dinner guests will never notice this.

This collection makes a great classical music sampler in general, despite the "Thanksgiving" billing. Since it is lighter fare, it makes great reading music or the perfect entry point for those new to classical music.

I really have been enjoying this album, there are many nice songs and they all set up a nice festive autumn mood. For .99c you cant go wrong, even if you find one new song that you like it's worth it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant background music for gatherings December 9, 2011
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Are there Thanksgiving classics? "The Messiah" or "The Nutcracker" are associated with Christmas but I can't think of any classics intended for Thanksgiving. But does it matter? Not really. An album or a collection like this should be judged according to whether it meets its intended goals.

One listen to these tracks and it's clear that the assembled recordings were packaged to provide pleasant background music at gatherings like the family get-togethers that happen over the Thanksgiving holiday. The setlist is largely comprised of light string numbers or reflective pieces performed on piano. Even those unfamiliar with classical music will recognize some of these melodies, composer Carl Stalling incorporated many of them in his soundtracks for the Warner Brothers cartoons.

Admittedly this profusion of pleasantry is not something to which I would actively listen. Not that I don't like classical music or pleasant music. Rather, when aggregated in a set like this, it is designed for a particular purpose, and it serves that purpose very well.

Imagine this scenario: it's Thanksgiving Day. Family and friends are starting to pour into the place. Jethro turns on the big screen because beer without football just wouldn't be Thanksgiving. Other males of the species join him in rituals of howling or bellowing. Children chase each other throughout the house, under the table and over grown ups' feet. The dog barks. A flurry of women are buzzing about the dining room, issuing the annual updates that shirttail relations provide on occasions like this. One or two people are stationed in the kitchen, monitoring poultry and whipping up side dishes. In that kind of noisy environment, anything designed for active listening would merely add to the chaos.
