Most of the box sets in this series are the original pressings and this to me is a good thing. Snap them up before they sell out and horrible modern masters come out!
Here's the fine-detail for the LITTLE FEAT set - released Monday 1 March 2010 on Warner Brothers/Rhino 8122 79835 9, "Original Album Series" 5CD box set breaks down as follows:

There is no doubt it would have been great to hear all these discs remastered but I do not think any of these 'originals' sound anywhere near as disappointing as that very detailed earlier dated review suggests.
Like the other box sets I've heard in this series the sound on these CDs is not a problem at all and probably as close to the original vinyl sound as anyone could reasonably wish for. In fact I think the first CD/LP "Little Feat" in this set actually sounds better than the original vinyl - probably because it has been (unlike the other 4CDs) remixed by Bob Kovach.
I also have Little Feat's more expensive 4CD (remastered) compilation 'Hotcakes & Outtakes' box and enjoy hearing and comparing the selection of tracks included on it that are also on this 'Original Album Series', but listening to both box sets (with their different masterings) I'd say the bottom line is you can't have too many versions of the Warner Brothers recordings made by Lowell George's Little Feat and that this 'Original Album Series' Box cannot be beaten on value for money (or musical content).
* There are no bonus tracks on any of the CDs in this box.
A good deal of time and music here. love it.
Now here I am nearly forty years of music later realising what innovators Little Feat were.
I rediscovered them last month on a BBC programme about rock guitar, which featured Lowell George playing slide guitar on 'Rock and Roll Doctor'.
Transfixed, I came straight to Amazon and bought this collection. I'm no hifi buff, so can't really comment on the technicalities of the recordings mentioned in other reviews, but I can say with real feeling that this is great American music that has something for everyone.
For the money, this mini box set is a real bargain, with each cd sleeve a copy of the original LP artwork.
5 cd's of great music for less than the price of a takeaway meal. I didn't even have to think about it.

Little Feat, a much underrated band from 1969 until 1979 when Lowell George died . This item is actually a set of all their 5 albums, and my partner is thrilled with the content,... Read morePublished 8 days ago by E. L. GOULDEN
I am not sure if anyone listens to Little Feat these days except old gits like me. I saw them live a couple of years ago and realised l am mostly a Lowell George fan. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Jonathan Talbot
Wonderful, I have them on vinyl but this a good way to buy them and so wonderful.Published 8 months ago by mirrorbear
Low price reflected in low sound quality. Sounds like it was recorded on a cassette machine in the next room. Awful. Don't waste your money. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Andrew Thomas
