Format: Audio CD
It should be very clear to everybody that this is the original album series what this means is that the album are in cardboard sleeves housed in a small cardboard box. There are no liner notes except whats reprinted on the front an backs of the sleeves and the font is usually very small. More often than not these are usually not the most up to date remaster of the albums. The main point of contention with original album series is that people want the most up to date with extra tracks etc This can be easily avoided if people took the time to look at the track listing, there are no bonus tracks in this box . I feel for the price they are worth it especially if you're looking to get into a band you can pick up a chunk of their output in one place.

There is a review here saying there is no sound? I can confirm that these CDs play perfectly obviously there is problem with that persons CD player/speakers.

While the last two discs in this box are average their first three albums are must owns and this is a great way to get them if you do not mind not owning bonus tracks etc.

This is a straight-up set of their first four albums plus 1994's Last of the Independents (missing out 1990's Packed.) No bonus tracks or extras that I can see so the question, as it often is with these sets, is it worth getting this in preference to one of their greatest hits packages? The first (Pretenders) and third (Learning to Crawl) albums still sound good but they sound good mainly because of the wall-to-wall hit singles - the other three albums are inferior although each still produced an excellent single or two but my conclusion is that a greatest hits package at less than half the price is a better option.

Not new albums unfortunately, but all the great songs together in one place, and no messing about with vinyl. Magic to be able to hear Chrissie's voice whenever you want to. Thoroughly recommended.
