I would have liked to give this product a 5 star review, but unfortunately a massive mistake on Sony's part prevents me from this. To put it simply: On the back of the case it says that this is a collection of the first five albums with Steve Perry. This is not true. It is a collection of their 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th and 6th albums, excluding the first three not featuring Steve Perry. They have forgotten 1980's "Departure". A shame, because it is a significantly better album than "Raised on Radio", which, if Sony had remembered the correct chronological order of Journey's albums, wouldn't be included in this album collection. That said, this is a collection of five great albums, and since my car does not have a cable to connect music playing devices such as my iPhone, it is very nice to be able to hear great music in spite of this.

Reading other reviews here is funny because it is Amazon's error that the review for one product is automatically linked to another similar one. It happens. To make the confusion clear, stop and read.

Below are Journey's studio albums in chronological order parenthesising lead singers. There are 3 different Original Album Classic Box Sets for Journey. This Original Album Classics contains the first 3 albums marked * featuring Greg Rolie as a vocalist. Steve Perry hadn't joined yet. And this Original Album Classics includes the other 3 albums marked +. And again this Original Album Classics for which this review is written has 5 albums marked X.

01 1975 - Journey (Greg Rolie) *
02 1976 - Look Into The Future (Greg Rolie) *
03 1977 - Next (Greg Rolie) *
04 1978 - Infinity (Steve Perry/Greg Rolie) X
05 1979 - Evolution (Steve Perry/Greg Rolie) X
06 1980 - Departure (Steve Perry/Greg Rolie) +
07 1980 - Dream After Dream (Soundtrack to Japanese film) (Steve Perry/Greg Rolie)
08 1981 - Escape (Steve Perry) + X
09 1983 - Frontiers (Steve Perry) + X
10 1986 - Raised On Radio (Steve Perry) X
11 1996 - Trial By Fire (Steve Perry)
12 2001 - Arrival (Steve Augeri)
13 2002 - Red 13 (EP) (Steve Augeri)
14 2005 - Generations (Steve Augeri)
15 2008 - Revelation (Arnel Pineda)
16 2011 - Eclipse (Arnel Pineda)

Greatest Hits, Greatest Hits 2, Revelation and Eclipse are all the Journey albums I have. In addition now this box set. Being a big fan of Steve Perry, I would very much love to collect every Journey album featuring him. Thanks to Sony Music for releasing Original Album Classic series. But I wouldn't understand why Escape and Frontiers are packed twice. What about the other albums? Otherwise my collection would have been complete. Never mind.

By the way, this box set comes in hard card board box a little thicker than the normal CD jewel case and inside goes 5 CDs in separate sleeves with album art, track lists and little production info. Not to expect lyrics and photos like in standard CDs. Economical for a collector which will also minimise the storage space in the rack. Brilliant.

I'm really glad about this collection of five cds: always liked them and Escape / Frontiers are must have Cds. Plus, they get some bonus track really beautiful, that I only listened in films or singles (I'm talking about Frontiers - Escape has some live version of the album tracks)

Good value. These really take you back to the 70s and 80s. 5 albums of which only one (Frontiers) is below par, the others are cracking.
