That's Entertainment! The Ultimate Anthology of M-G-M Musicals [TCM]

CD

Overview

MGM's three That's Entertainment! movies include what many feel are the greatest production numbers from a cavalcade of classic Hollywood musicals from their origins in the early sound days through their heyday in the 1950s. Included in this massive 6 CD box set are recordings both revered (The Wizard of OZ, Singin' in the Rain, Meet Me in St. Louis) and previously unreleased, all of them newly digitally remastered from the best available sources. In all, some 80 different films are represented, which contains full soundtracks for the three That's Entertainment! pictures (along with the new medleys and overtures written for each film), as well as outtakes and demo recordings. A bonus sixth disc includes additional material from the three films that has never been released previously in any audio format. Rounding out the package is an extensive 96 page booklet chronicling the history of MGM musicals, with comprehensive coverage of each film and selection in this outstanding Rhino release.
