 Really? September 19, 2015 By William N. (Baldwinsville, NY) See All My Reviews "I shouldn't even write anything because I never played it. I bought it as a little joke to send to my daughter. She's getting married later this year. However, I will admit that I do not like CD's that contain only fragments and selections, but it was cheap and I thought she would get a kick out of it."
