5.0 out of 5 stars Happy Daze Are Here Again.
With the release of Original Album Series by The Happy Mondays you get 5 Cds by the group themselves for the low low price of just one.

Unlike other sets these have not been re mastered and DO NOT include any extra tracks which is a shame.
There was and is a whole lot more alternative takes and TV performances out there which would have meant the set...

3.0 out of 5 stars paid 9 for 5 albums
all individually encased in cardboard sleeves fitting into a cardboard housing so if you look after them theyll be fine! or you could buy individual plastic cases yourself afterwards if you feel like you want that bit more protection?

With the release of Original Album Series by The Happy Mondays you get 5 Cds by the group themselves for the low low price of just one.

Unlike other sets these have not been re mastered and DO NOT include any extra tracks which is a shame.
There was and is a whole lot more alternative takes and TV performances out there which would have meant the set would have sold out as quick as speed If the cops were on strike in Manchester on New Years Eve.

Certainly other similar releases which have the extra tracks and often re mastering have sold by the shed load.
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.
All the CDS are held in replica LP sleeves and housed in a card box which is fabulous for storing.

The Albums are
'Squirrel and G-Man Twenty Four Hour Party People Plastic Face Carnt Smile', 'Bummed',
'Pills 'n' Thrills and Bellyaches',
'Live' and
'Yes, Please'.

4.0 out of 5 stars All the classic mondays.... and a lot of tosh too, 9 Sep 2013
This review is from: Original Album Series (Audio CD)
It's good to see these albums getting a budget release. I kept not buying them at full price, failing to be able to justify the high price for little function. Don't get me wrong, the Mondays were a singles band ahead of their time, but I've always felt that a lot of the album material was pretty much filler. Now, with a much lower price for all five albums I'm glad I finally did take the plunge, although the quality varies from album to album. The band had highs (Pills, Thrills...) and they had their lows (Yes Please, or as Record Mirror put it "No Thanks!", a point on which I have to agree).

A worthy release, but it does highlight some of the rubbish that they came out with. So, I'll take it as two albums worth of great material, and a lot of filler. Still, worth the money in the end.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great CDs , rubbish box, 22 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Original Album Series (Audio CD)
Great collection of Mondays CDs but I have only given 3 starts because of the box !!! The CDs come in cardboard sleeves which are great because they look like mini lp's
The problem is the outer box they come in !! It Is made of flimsy thin card which to me won't last very long before it becomes damaged and worn!! I have bought similar box sets before I.e simple minds 5x5 , and Bruce Springsteen cd collection with CDs in cardboard sleeves and the outer boxes were far better quality !!
