4.0 out of 5 stars Arguably Newman's greatest five studio albums. No bonus tracks., 13 Oct 2011
This review is from: Original Album Series (Audio CD)
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.

Think this set is aimed squarely at the casual buyer rather than the hardcore Randy Newman fan. Quite a few "Original Album Series" packages out right now. Tim Buckley,Tom Waits, Carly Simon etc. Just in time for Christmas.
