50s, '60s and '70s (it does dip back to the '40s on the first disc and forward to the '80s on the last, but such accuracy is really nitpicking). The term "standard" is no exaggeration: among these 57 songs not a one is unfamiliar or unexpected, which is the appeal of the set, of course.

The 50s material is very weak if you are thinking the great 50s hits and familiar lounge-type instrumentals. They trot out some very shopworn titles that are in ALL these types of collections such as Sleepwalk, Rebel Rouser, Raunchy, etc. To me this was a big waste of money and time. The titles were big hits but the recordings by some of these people are just not very good.
