Funky as a Mosquito doing the Michael Jackson Moon Walk on a Cocaine line in a Mexican Jail - Graham Central Station hit the ground running in 1974 with a debut album as brill as "AWB" - a Soul/Funk band that somehow crossed over and appealed to the white Rock audience. Hardly surprising really - especially as Larry Graham had served his Bass Player apprenticeship with Sly & The Family Stone. And with the now-deleted 2001 Rhino 2CD Anthology "The Jam" commanding a very nasty price tag (fabulous compilation though) - this 5-album Mini Box Set pitched at under twelve quid is a bit of a deal (and they're all remasters too). Here are the dudes in big hats and even bigger flares...

Released September 2013 - "Original Album Series" on Warner Brothers 8127796513 (Barcode 0812279655136) breaks down as follows:

Disc 1 (38:30 minutes):
1. We've Been Waiting
2. It Ain't No Fun To Me
3. Hair
4. We Be's Getting' Down
5. Tell Me What It Is [Side 2]
6. Can You Handle It?
7. People
8. Why?
9. Ghetto
Tracks 1 to 9 are their debut album "Graham Central Station" released February 1974 in the USA on Warner Brothers BS 2763 and Warner Brothers K 46286 in the UK

Disc 2 (37:32 minutes):
1. G.C.S.
2. Release Yourself
3. Got To Go Through It To Get To It
4. I Believe In You
5. 'Tis Your Kind Of Music [Side 2]
6. Hey Mr. Writer
7. Feel The Need
8. Today
Tracks 1 to 8 are their 2nd album "Release Yourself" released October 1974 in the USA on Warner Brothers BS 2814 and in the UK on Warner Brothers K 56062

Disc 3 (42:07 minutes):
1. The Jam
2. Your Love
3. It's Alright

With the release of Original Album Series by Graham Central Station you get 5 remastered Cds by the group himself for the low low price of just one.
They really are a steal at this price

Unlike other sets these have not been re mastered and DO NOT include any extra tracks which is a shame.
This really does add to the attraction of buying them.
Certainly other similar releases which have the extra tracks and often re mastering have sold by the shed load.
(For example the Man, Edgar Broughton, Yes and Jefferson Airplane releases)
They are bought by the fans who already have the CDs and any one with just a couple of the Cds to their name not to mention just owning them on Vinyl.

The companies have missed a trick not adding additional tracks which the fans really deserve.
I just wish Island would get around to releasing similar sets by their rostra of artists.
If they had they would sell this set in bucket loads
.A missed opportunity and a slight letdown for any fans who already has the set? .
BUT...
For any one new these are a fantastic purchase or if you only have these on Vinyl and they have worn out then you really cannot do wrong (as David M Simpson pointed out to me.)

All the CDS are held in really neat, replica LP sleeves and housed in a card box which is fabulous for storing.

The Albums are
"Graham Central Station" (1974),
"Release Yourself" (1974),
"Ain't No 'Bout-A-Doubt It" (1975),
"Mirror" (1979) and
"Now Do U Wanta Dance" (1977).

At this price it's a must have, ok sly and the family stone sold more but in my humble opinion the first g.c.station is an equal to any sly album .
