A collection of varied albums from their earlier career, really worth the money.= there is little information in addition to the original sleeve, but going on-line is no problem.

This set is brilliant value and is the second such set by Weather Report.
The earlier set caused a few ructions judging by the reviews so my advice to you is double check!
Why not but the other cheap as chips set of 5 then for the cost of 2 CDs you get 10?

3.0 out of 5 stars An important record set 25 Feb 2013
By art
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As a historical record of the group this is essential for lovers of the genre. I remember seeing them in Hammersmith and they were astonishing live. So many influences in their music and effects were extraordinary, a plane taking off from left stage to right seemed to be overhead in the theatre.
The first 3 discs were slightly disappointing it seemed as a group they were finding their way and hadnt quite got it together.
But the latter discs are first rate full of excitement and bubbling over with invention and ideas Shorter and Zawinul at their best.
So overall an important collection of one of the best groups of their time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Original Album Classics Again 11 Jun 2012
By Joel Henderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is the second Original Album Classics box for Weather Report and there's no overlap whatsoever with the other one so consider this "volume two". And considering there's only 5 albums left (the live 8:30 along with the four albums with Victor Bailey), you should expect a third volume eventually.


"Weather Report (1971)": An extremely short lived line-up features Alphonse Mouzon on drums and Airto Moreira at the percussion table, who would quickly bail on WR for Larry Coryell's Eleventh House and Return to Forever respectively. Miroslav Vitous plays both acoustic and electric bass. Its arguably the most "progressive" album Weather Report has done due to its unusual chord structures and often dissonant sounds. The AAD remastering was done in 1992 by Vic Anesini and sounds pretty good despite some age and source related issues.

"Tale Spinnin'": From the more chaotic Alphonso Johnson-era when the band would frequently change personnel every few tracks. Here we have Ndugu Chancellor (from Santanna) on drums and Don Elias and Alyrio Lima on percussion. Some of the most popular Weather Report tracks like "Man in the Green Shirt", "Freezing Fire", and "Badia". This is the most recent remastering of the bunch, done a few years ago by Mark Wilder for Icon O'Clastic records and sounds excellent.

"Heavy Weather": The album that put Jazz Fusion on the map (for better or worse). Features the classic Zawinul/Shorter/Pastorius trio as well as Alex Acuna on drums and Manolo Badrena at percussion. "Birdland", "Teen Town", "A Remark You Made", "Havona", etc. Heavy Weather, as well as Black Market, are the most frequently remastered albums Weather Report has put out. This is the 1997 ADD Wilder remaster, which arguably isn't as good as the 1992 AAD Anesini version but should be more than acceptable for casual listeners.

"Mr. Gone": The most divisive thing Joe Zawinul ever put to record. This one's often considered their "sell-out" album due to the influence of disco and pop music on some tracks. Again the line-up is in flux with three drummers (including Peter Erskine) and no percussionists (although Manolo Badrena does appear on the album briefly). Despite the divergent views on this album it does include some fan favorites like Jaco's showpiece "Punk Jazz" and "Persuit of the Woman in the Feathered Hat".

"Weather Report" (1981): The band's second self-titled release was the final album featuring Jaco Pastorius and percussionist Robert Washington Jr. Its a strange album which often sounds like a fusion of their first album and their studio works from 8:30 and Night Passage. This is the original Joe Palamaccio CD transfer from the mid-80s and is actually pretty good for its time.
4.0 out of 5 stars Heavy weather rules 22 Jun 2013

I have the old turn table LP pf Heavy Weather which I have enjoyed greatly so thought I would fill it out with the rest of their albums with both collections. But some of the albums I have found hard to get into but I will keep on listening them now and again to find the magic they hold.
