3.0 out of 5 stars Sony Legacy Not Quite On The Money... 10 Aug 2013
By Jason Lott - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Despite the attempt to recreate the magic of the Money Man in one box set, this "Original Album Classics" leaves you "cents-less". Senseless in the fact that while Sony Legacy continues to churn out remastered and high-end quality reissues for a magnitude of artists, they can't do the same for the soulful rock of Eddie Money. These appear to be the same old Columbia issues as we've heard before... To go through all the trouble of packaging these in the brilliant mini-lp style replicas without liner notes, remastering,... kind of a shame. Don't get me wrong, the recordings (especially those showcasing Jimmy Lyon's guitar work) and production by Dowd, Zito and Botnick still hold up incredibly well after all these years. I was also impressed that they finally reissued 1983's "Where's The Party", which has been somewhat rare in the secondary markets. If you are a casual fan, and perhaps only have one or none of these albums on CD, this box set is a wonderful buy at $22 bucks. And while this 5 CD set leaves out 1980's "Playing For Keeps" as the only one missing in this span (1977 to 1986), these 50 songs bring back the memories and keeps you `running back' for more. Sony Legacy may have missed the mark here for core Money fans, but thank goodness for Rock Candy's meticulous remastering of Eddie's first four albums just released earlier this year... proving you can't keep a good sound down. - Jason Lott, July 2013

5.0 out of 5 stars Take it for what it is... 25 Aug 2013
By Charles - Published on Amazon.com

While I cannot argue factually with anything in the other review here, any prospective buyer of this product should bear in mind that the apparent goal of Sony Legacy's Original Album Classics series is VALUE.

Sure...if you are an Eddie Money connoisseur/completist, there are other offerings for you to explore, as noted. Or, if you are one who believes that any new release of old material MUST necessarily be accompanied by expanded liner notes, and packaged in some super-deluxe-limited-edition-whatever for an exorbitant price, then this product is not for you.

If you are like me, however, and you are simply a fan of the music, a fan of the artist, and appreciate the availability of the original recordings bundled in one place for a very reasonable price (the desire for such need not necessarily equate to "casual" interest) then this product is definitely for you.

Yes, there are arguments to be made about the absence of liner notes (including the fact that a couple of the back sleeve covers appear to be poor/low-res scans of the original tray art), whether 'Playing For Keeps' or 'Nothing To Lose' might have been better inclusions (though, as noted elsewhere, you will not find an original pressing of 'Where's The Party?' for a reasonable price anywhere else, which renders this set well worth the package price on its own), and the arguable "remastering" issue, of course. For my part, however, I appreciate that the set is what it purports to be: ORIGINAL ALBUMS, conveniently packaged for a fair price, not ravaged by the current "remastering" craze. I can count on one hand the number of "remasters" over the last 15 years or so the results of which actually sounded like they were worth the effort, never mind the inflated price. As it seems that too often, "remastering" nowdays consists of little more than blowing out the gain on the master tracks to unacceptable levels and completely ruining the dynamic integrity of the original material, I actually PREFER the "same old issues" if it means that some knob jockey didn't ruin the recording so that the label can justify another price hike for a substandard product.

Not so here. You get a great selection of Eddie Money's best music as it has always sounded. By what rationale is that suddenly a disappointment? In today's ever-shifting iCulture, we're lucky to get even this, if you ask me.

While it would behoove Sony to make the investment into a PROPER remastering of Money's catalogue, what this set offers is a new pressing of the original material with minimal packaging at a value price. All things considered, while that might not warrant a full five stars (given so here on principle), it sure as heck is better than three.
3.0 out of 5 stars No surprises here 7 July 2014

It is pretty much what I expected. I own two of these CD already, but I knew going into the purchase decision. It is definitely a low end box set as opposed to a high quality. However, this is a good way to go if want to first five CD's w/o buying them individual. It is lot cheaper this way.

Mahoney brings back memories; as with music, they're both good and bad.
The quality of the sound is good. Buy it!
