The good news is that this is the second set of J. GEILS BAND Original Albums release at the price of a single CD.

The bad news is that all the albums are the original- and just that there are no additional tracks nor are the CDs remastered which is the case with a lot of similar releases today.

However a fan, Wayne Klein has told me that on all of the CDs "Nightmares...And Other Tales From The Vinyl Jungle,
Hotline,Live - Blow Your Face Out and Monkey Island the sound is fine.

So the label only have have missed a trick on the absence of extra tracks to entice people to buy.

So if you already have a couple on Cd already it may not be worth getting the set without the extra remastering or extra tracks add to the fact that one of the CDs is a best of so there will be a lot of doubling up of tracks.

On the other hand if you have then on vinyl and they are worn out or scratched then you really are on to a winner.

The other good news is that volume 1 is available too.

Original Album Series (5 Pack)

Entitled Series Vol 2 the 5 CD set is housed in a simple cardboard sleeve with the original LP covers reproduced.
So a magnifying glass will be needed to read those sleeves.

Some people have them. I like them because they are neat and are easy to store it's the music that counts.

The 5 CDS are

"Nightmares...And Other Tales From The Vinyl Jungle,
Hotline,
Live - Blow Your Face Out,
Monkey Island and
Best Of"

These are the Original Albums (No Bonus Tracks)

Stunning value - shame they only did 7 studio albums and 2 live albums on this label as this is why they stupidly make up the ten sets (Vols1 & 2) with a best of. These two sets are equally good with the plums being the live albums on each set.

I had been lookig to replace my worn out 1975 Hotline album for many years but was not prepared to pay an exagerated price.
This was a perfect solution and the bonus live material is also J Geils at their best.
