I kept putting and removing this item into my shopping cart because of its price. Had I known just how extensive and complete the collection really is, I would not have hesitated.
What's in this collection?
* Five CDs in total, packaged in a very nice box set format
* About 100 songs from every musical ever written by Webber on three CDs.
* The fourth CD includes different versions of some of the more popular songs (sung by different artists). It also includes Madonna's rendition of "You Must Love Me" (from the movie version of Evita).
* A bonus CD (so five CDs in total) with some never released stuff (very cool)
* A 64 page booklet with plenty of color photos, and information on the musicals and the songs in the collection.
Overall, a wonderful addition to any Webber fan's collection.

Regardless of the fact that some of his latest efforts (most notably, The Woman in White) are disappointing, there can be little doubt that Andrew Lloyd Webber is one of the greatest composers ever to work in the musical theatre. Ever since his "Jesus Christ Superstar" hit the stage in the early 70-is, it was clear that the conception and perception of musicals are never going to be the same again. Many of his songs became standards not only in the theatre history, but also as tops on the charts. Even though he's British, his influence on the shape of the modern musical theatre expanded over the West End boundaries long ago and has thus made an enormous impact on Broadway. Two of his shows ("Cats" and "The phantom of the opera") hold the record as two the longest running shows in the history of Broadway. He has also been the only composer to have three of his shows running at Broadway concurrently. Some of his awards include three Grammies, a Golden Globe, an Oscar and a bunch of Tony awards. But perhaps most of all, Lloyd Webber is responsible for bringing the musicals and the theatre appealing to the wide audiences, who in different circumstances would not consider seeing a musical. The secret of his success is probably the mixture of beautiful and catchy melodies, interesting subject matter (though some, like Starlight Express, are too thin) and grandiose staging.

Over the years many compilations of his work have emerged. In the late 80-is and early 90-is it was the "Encore" series and lately the one-disc collection called "Gold". The one in question here can be considered one of the best currently on the market. First, it includes a 3-disc selections from all of his shows, minus the latest one, i.e.

This box set could very well be the only Andrew Lloyd Webber collection someone would ever need. Of course, if you don't know much about Andrew Lloyd Webber's music, you probably wouldn't want to spend over sixty dollars on a box set. On the other hand, if you are a true Lloyd-Webber fan, then this is probably not the only one of his recordings you have, either. Anyhow, this box set contains the highlights of his greatest work performed by the people who (arguably) performed the songs best. Most Lloyd-Webber fans will have the majority of the songs on the first three CDs (with the possible exception of American fans perhaps not having those from The Beautiful Game). However, these all of these tracks have been newly digitally remastered and sound better than ever. There are also other perks for us all-time buffs.
Disc 4 has many famous cover versions and singles, some of which you may already have, but you also get the bonuses on this disc of Kiri Te Kanawa's "The Heart is Slow to Learn" (which was originally going to be part of a sequel to Phantom) and the Metal Philharmonic Orchestra's breathtaking rendition of "A Kiss is A Terrible Thing To Waste" (featuring vocalist "Scarpia"). You will have chills for days after that one.
Finally, there is the famous disc 5! Tracks never before realeased on CD for many of us to enjoy for the first time. This CD takes us back to the roots of ALW's music and lets us taste a few of the early moments of his career. It includes many singles for several well-known artist that didn't quite work out. It even includes the song written by Lloyd-Webber for his 1992 wedding. This is the most treasured disc of the whole set, in my opinion. Of course, this whole set is a treasure (even the extravegant and informative booklet in the box) and I highly reccomend this to anyone with a passion for Lord Lloyd-Webber's music.

I was waiting for this cd for a long time, and I wasn't disappointed. It carries some of the best recordings of all of ALW's best songs.
The most fascinating part of this collection is the rarities included on the last CD. It includes some of his most famous songs, before they were in their final form. Other songs included in this collection of rarities are songs that were recorded and never released in any way shape or form, until now.
Another great part of this collection is the fourth cd. It includes all of the songs that have reached the tops of the charts. All by some of the greatest artists of the late 20th century, such as Elvis, Barbara Striesand, Madonna, Petula Clark, and more!
The only disappointment there is with this collection is that there are still many great recordings of ALW's that weren't included. You'll have to look in other places for those. Even so, it is the best compilation of one of the worlds greatest composers
