New York is part of Grofe's Hudson River Suite. What is called New York is actually The River and it's wonderful. The parts: Henry Hudson, Rip Van Winkle, Albany Night Boat, and the real New York are all music in The Hudson River Suite, but the music with these names in iTunes is not correct, in fact is nothing like the music composed by Grofe. I hope iTunes will discover this and provide the true music with the right names!
Death Valley Suite
I think two of the songs are mixed up. Rip Van Winkle sounds like the 49r wagon train and visa versa. Naxos may want to check this out. Otherwise, it's intriguing.
