The series includes music from the world of classical, opera, easy listening and everything recorded or owned by Reader's Digest over the last century (and a little into this!). Each volume will be themed to make for a pleasurable listening experience in the old style of Digest products, building up into an amazing selection of music for you to enjoy without having to lift all those heavy vinyl boxes from shelf to player.
