-then I'd recommend the brilliant 2CD compilation Land which has more than its fair share of overlap with this 5CD set. I was playing Land quite recently when I happened to come across this repackaging of her first five albums (though there's a ten year gap between the fourth and fifth, with the first four being records 1975-79).

And I bought it because there's more than enough good stuff to make it worth acquiring the set, plus there's a total of 7 unreleased or hard to get tracks spread among them. That these five albums come at an extremely reasonable price, like most of the excellent Original Album Classics series do, make it an irresistible purchase. Patti Smith is a crazy quirky pretentious intellectual genius weirdo and lots more adjectives to denote her eclecticism. She isn't the world's greatest singer, though she can sing, with a voice that's once heard is never forgotten.

Like all the others in the OAC series, the five CDs are packaged in card replicas of their original sleeves and fitted within a slim cardboard box. No additional notes or overview but you can easily get that on All-Music Guide. If you're into rock/punk/new wave/avante-garde music of the 70's, this is unmissable.

No need to introduce Patti Smith as one of the most influential musicians in rock history. I've got two vinyl albums from back in the day, but never had the whole works. When I wanted to finally close this gap in my collection I found this compilation, and could not believe my luck that they sell all the original albums on CD for this price. If you like the music and don't mind not getting the full cover this is offer is unbeatable.
I'm usually worried that these offers include pathetic re-recordings, but these are the real ones.

OK, the first most obvious point "you get what you pay for", it is bare-bones packaging, there are no additional photographs or cover notes or biographical notes just the most important element of Patti Smith the first five albums, which sound absolutely brilliant. So if you are replacing that badly scratched vinyl or just wanting to hear more from this remarkable artist go no further than this box set. Absolutely brilliant. You could purchase the collection Land but when this box-set is such good value and covers arguably the best albums why bother?

For all lovers of gutsy female rockers, in my view no other singer songwriter comes close to emulating Patti Smith's unique, gutteral style.
Her brilliant lyrics to Bruce Springsteens classic instrumentation of 'Because The Night' have come together to produce one of the most powerful and stimulating love songs ever written.
Patti Smith is one of the most underated technitions of our times.....BRILLIANT!

Had Patti Smith's first three vinyl albums back in the 70s, I didn't really follow her after that, assuming (from what I'd heard of "Wave") that her later albums would not have the same brilliance as the first three. This box set gave me the opportunity to get the first albums on CD (with extra tracks) as well as "Wave" and "Dream of Life", which I'd not heard at all. "Horses" of course is a classic, I bought it back in 1977 and hearing it again on CD it is as exciting and fresh as back then. "Radio Ethiopia" is also a classic, and I prefer it to "Horses", being a bit harder and punkier. It was great to hear "Easter" again too, a beautiful album, though not quite the classic as the previous two. "Wave" for me is the weakest album in this box set, but has some good tracks. It was great to hear "Dream of Life" for the first time, it has some really beautiful songs, and it prompted me to buy some of her later albums. The extra tracks are a bit of a mixed bunch, but I particularly like "Godspeed", which if I rememeber right was the b side of "Because the Night". "Dream of Life" has some great extra tracks too. Well worth a tenner to get so much excellent music.

I recently had the privilege to see Patti Smith live and she and the band were great. She is perhaps not that well known in the UK, so this collection is a great introduction to her music. She was one of the pioneers of punk and this contains some great music.

this box conteins the most beautiful and important work from miss smith, the best rocker, punk and poetry woman in the history of the music and the art in general... From "Horses", one of the most important albums in the history of Pop Music, Miss Smith begins one of the most complet and perfect works in the musical world...
