I had no idea this two disc set of Leroy Anderson compositions conducted by the composer himself had been reissued. Enjoy "light classics"? Then GRAB IT! It is the most comprehensive collection of his works and considering the age of these vintage stereo recordings the sound is just remarkable. It's all here folks: "Sleigh Ride", "The Synchopated Clock", "Bugler's Holiday", "Fiddle Faddle", and all those light classics made famous by Arthur Feidler and the Boston Pops. Plus the ones you may never have heard, all equally creative and fun.
One comment: The last two items on disc one and the last six on disc two (the Scottish and Irish suites) are recorded in mono and predate the other recordings. But don't let that stop you. They are clean recordings all the same. 47 tracks. Over two hours of music. For lovers of light classics in general and Leroy Anderson in particular, you can't get a better collection than this.
(Amazon.com also features another single disc recording on MCA of these original Decca recordings but with only twenty tracks and priced higher, why bother? This is the set to go with!)

I have known for quite a few years that Leroy Anderson had recorded most of his music (with a studio pick-up orchestra), but it wasn't until I heard these two discs that I realized just how fine a conductor he was. No other conductor, even Arthur Fiedler or Frederick Fennell, ever matched the bravura and "rightness" that Anderson brought to these encore pieces. Of all the many versions of "Sleigh Ride" I own, this is the recording that makes my jaw drop (and probably the fastest "Ride" one is apt to take). True, the sound is a bit dry and "studio-ish", but that only serves to bring out the detail and snap of each of these works.
I can't ever imagine my collection without these near-perfect discs. Grab 'em while you can!

Note for note, penny for penny, the biggest music bargain around! All the charming, sprightly and downright beautiful pop classic compositions of this foremost American composer in one CD set, all beautifully arranged and played by a full symphony orchestra. There's too much music here to play it all at once, but if you listen to a sequence of 4 or 5 of them, you will just be sitting there smiling and wanting more.

Anderson was something of a genius who could probably have written more "serious" music, but he chose to use his considerable talents to give us these lovely little musical portraits. If you are familiar with only his most popular tunes, such as "Sleigh Ride", "Blue Tango", "The Waltzing Cat" or "The Typewriter", there will soon be at least a dozen more which will tickle your fancy and have you humming and picturing the subject at hand in your mind. Anyone who likes the classics or pop music or anything in between should have this collection.

As a music lover, I've had a long and happy relationship with the works of Leroy Anderson. As a kid, my parents would take me to the historic Emery Theatre in Ohio, for double features of Laurel & Hardy, the Marx Brothers, Abbott & Costello - you get the idea. During intermission, a skilled player would take over the helm of the mighty Wurlitzer theatre organ, and favor us all with all and sundry selections. One night, however, a certain piece really grabbed me, and I asked my father, a seasoned singer, what it was. "Why, that's called Serenata - isn't it great?" I asked dad who wrote it, and ran off to the library the next day, in search of Anderson albums. I was 8 years old, and my musical tastes were about to grow up.

Imagine my delight some years later, when I found this CD double set - all of the greats, as well as some real rarities, conducted by the master himself. One couldn't ask for more. The selections are all digitally remastered Decca releases, and the work MCA has done to restore them is pristine. Forty-seven pieces altogether make up the collection, and there isn't a lull in the crowd. Standards such as "Sleigh Ride", "Sandpaper Ballet", "The Syncopated Clock" and "Bugler's Holiday" are included, plus the often looked over delights, such as "Jazz Legato", "Town House Maxixe", "China Doll", and "Horse & Buggy". The list just goes on and on - were I to delve into each number, we'd be here for ages. All just great.

If you're even slightly interested in Leroy Anderson's work, make this purchase without hesitation - at this price, it's foolish to pass up on such an offer. And if you already happen to be a fan, BUY IT NOW.

I first heard Leroy Anderson's 'Bugler's Holiday' in 1955 (monaural version of course) and thought it was one of the best pieces of music I had ever heard. I still think it is. The version on this album is the 1959 stereo version and due to re-mastering, it's amazingly gppd as os the complete 2 disc set. The albums show even though he was a light classical composer, he had a great sense of humour (The Waltzing Cat among others). This is the most complete Leroy Anderson set I've heard. A good recording and the price couldn't be better. Get ready for a couple of hours of relaxation with one of the truly great composers.
