    Default Identify this 5-part set that came pre-loaded on my Creative MP3 player in 2002

    Around about 2002 I bought my first MP3 player - a Creative Nomad Jukebox 3 with 20GB of storage space. Creative shipped the player with some classical albums pre-loaded, though the pre-loaded files were "locked" somehow to disallow transfer to a computer. I'd like to see if I can buy this collection on CD or download now, but I'm having trouble finding it available anywhere.

    The collection was called "Popular Classics" and was split into 5 parts: Popular Classics 1, Popular Classics 2, Popular Classics 3, Popular Classics 4 and Popular Classics 5 (the playing time of each part would fit on a CD - making me suspect the collection is/was originally available as a 5-CD set). The artist was listed as "Beijing Central Phil Orchestr" and I'll copy the tracklistings below. Some of the labels are truncated due to technical limitations.
    I'd really appreciate if anyone could help me locate it.

    (There was a 3-part collection called 'Night Music' also pre-loaded on the MP3 player, and I was able to find this one available on CD from the Naxos label. I thought maybe the 'Popular Classics' collection might have been a Naxos release too, but I was not able to identify it.)

    Amazon US lists one recording by this orchestra, but the recording is of modern Chinese music. But the Beijing Central Phil. does seem to be real. If you can navigate Amazon China, try there. Or Google the orchestra name. If Creative Nomad is still in business you can contact them.

    Sorry I can't give any better suggestions.
    If music be the food of life, play on!
    ....Shakespeare, corrected.
