So, you bought the Big Beethoven Box from 2012 -- 15 hours of Beethoven music on MP3 for $0.99 -- from Amazon a while back but you still want more?

No problem -- have another 15+ hours of Beethoven MP3's, with the Bach Guild's 2016's Bigger Beethoven Box, also for only $0.99:

https://www.amazon.com/Bigger-Beethoven-Box-Various-artists/dp/B01BHELQD2/ 

This set has the 1st, 4th, 7th and 9th symphonies (the earlier set has the 3rd, 5th, 6th and 7th), more of the piano sonatas as well as
a bunch of less-known pieces, such as Beethoven's Scottish, Irish and Welsh songs and much, much more.

Let this (lightly-reformatted) excerpt of the top-rated review on Amazon, by Upstate Listener, tell you why you should get this:
Bach Guild has done it again. The highlight here, as others have mentioned, are ten of Bruce Hungerford's superb Piano Sonatas from a widely lauded set of the Beethoven sonatas that was left uncompleted when he was killed in a car accident at the age of 55. The earlier Bach Guild Big Beethoven Box contains 14 Hungerford sonatas. Four are duplicates--the only duplicates in the new set, I think. If ou don't already have the earlier Beethoven Big Box, you should buy that and then you'll have all the Beethoven sonatas Hungerford recorded. That alone is worth the price of admission.

But there's much other cool stuff here. Dennis Matthews renditions of the Beethoven Bagatelles Op. 33, 119 and 126 are top-notch. We have some nice recordings of WoO works for piano by Jorge Demus.  [N.B. WoO = Werke ohne Opuszahl = works without opus-number].

And then are the suprisingly gorgeous selections of Scottish, Irish and Welsh songs with Denis Stevens leading the Academia Monteverdiana and some fine English soloists. Beethoven scholars often write these pieces off as mere potboilers, but if these are potboilers, give me more of them. And really, I wish there were many more of these songs. The four here, including a "to die for" "Auld Lang Syne," merely whet the appetite.


Once again, here's the Bigger Beethoven Box link:
