|Long Description||World renowned conductor and arranger John Wilson leads an all-star cast of singers and his eponymous orchestra, comprised of some of the UK's finest musicians, on this dazzling recording of some of the best-loved songs from Hollywood's Golden Age: That's Entertainment: A Celebration of the MGM Film Musical . Most of the scores have been lovingly and painstakingly reconstructed by Wilson, as MGM destroyed the originals in 1969. This is the first time the songs, including "Singin' in the Rain", "Steppin' Out with My Baby", "The Trolley Song", and title track "That's Entertainment", have been recorded in their intended orchestration since the films' original soundtrack recordings. That's Entertainment: A Celebration of the MGM Film Musical captures The John Wilson Orchestra's record-smashing 2009 Prom concert, which catapulted the 96-member band to stardom and captured the hearts of the British public. With guest performers Kim Criswell, Matthew Ford, Sarah Fox, Seth MacFarlane and Curtis Stigers , the concert was watched by over four million people. This recording captures the joie de vivre of the live experience. The show now comes to the US where it is a PBS National Pledge Drive in August and September of 2012. Composer, arranger and conductor John Wilson is one of the world's leading experts on the music of Hollywood and Broadway's Golden Age. In addition to his touring with his own orchestra, he has worked closely with Sir Paul McCartney, and also arranged and conducted the music for the Kevin Spacey film Beyond the Sea .|

ISBN stands for International Standard Book Number. Originally this was a 10 digit number known as ISBN-10, but has been replaced with a 13 digit version known as ISBN-13 (aka EAN-13) to better fit in with the industry standard product numbering system.
The ISBN system offers a unique numbering system for books and publications of various types. ISBN offers 9 identification digits for each book or publication and one check digit. ISBN-13 expands the available number set by doubling the available numbers. You might think that the extra three digits would more than double the available numbers but ISBN is limited within the EAN-13 numbering system and will always start with 978 or 979 as the first three digits, leaving only 9 more digits for the actual identification digits and again the last digit is the check digit.
Any ISBN-10 number can be converted to ISBN-13. Any ISBN-13 number that starts with 978 can be converted back to ISBN-10. ISBN-13 numbers that start with 979 cannot be converted to ISBN-10.
The conversion process from ISBN-10 to ISBN-13 is a rather simple one. Start with the first 9 digits of the ISBN-10 number, place 978 in front and calculate the new check digit using the standard EAN check digit calculation.
If you want to calculate the check digit for ISBN-10, that is done using a MOD-11 calculation that is very different than the EAN check digit process.
- Lets start with ISBN-10 number 1-5905-9332-?
- Each digit is multiplied by its position for digits 1-9
- 1x1 + 5x2 + 9x3 + 0x4 + 5x5 + 9x6 + 3x7 + 3x8 + 2x9 = 180
- Now get the remainder 180 mod 11 = 4
- Now return the mod 11 again... 4 mod 11 = 4
- If the results is 10, return the letter X otherwise return the digit.
- For our example, the final number is 1-5905-9332-4
Look at the number above and below the barcode. You will see that except for the last digit in the ISBN number, all of the digits exist in the 13 digit version shown under the barcode right after the 978 and just before the new check digit of 5.
Now you can see how easy it is to convert between ISBN-10 and ISBN-13.
