There are one or two little tricky bits but mostly these are very simple arrangements. The arrangements are very short and the CD Backing is obviously a keyboard, which isn't a convincing substitute for a band accompaniment. It actually sounds as if may be MIDI file played through a sound module which makes me think that if you get hold of the file you could probably do something better with it.
Of the tracks included I would say that Whistling Away the Dark is the most effective backing.
Fine if you are just wanting to play for your own enjoyment but I don't think you would want to perform these for anyone else.
Shame, because these are great songs. Poor old Henry Mancini must be spinning. What would be really helpful is if Musicroom would sample the CDs in these sets and let you hear a clip before you buy
