Well, this is terrific one stop shopping: Randy Newman's first five studio albums. Arguably his best five studio albums, as well. At an excellent price. That's the good news.
The bad news? These presented in low budget mini sleeves and without any bonus tracks or liner notes. Some of these albums have been issued in "deluxe" editions with lots of bonus material. Serious fans will absolutely want that bonus material. But if you're a casual fan, or just want to see what the fuss is all about, you really can't go wrong with this collection, especially at the price.
