Nope, the album title isn't a famed CR misprint, just a particular wince-inducing Americanism. This is the seventh and latest offering in the Acappella Series and quite honestly I thought this was going to be a struggle on the old ears. Wrong. Various classical pieces are subjected to an array of superb arrangements and given the acappella treatment with stunning effect. When it's done well, as it is on this album, this vocal phenomenon is breathtaking. But alas they cheated on the first track, but with great effect when the 4th movement of Beethoven's 9th symphony merges with the Bill Withers classic "Lean On Me". There are a few tracks that don't come over as well as others but on the whole this album will please the regular Acappella listener and maybe surprise those who would normally pass on it. Well worth the asking price.
