Original Album Series

5 original albums re-packaged into a box for this price is unbelievably good value

And as the last 3 albums are out and out great albums then carry on and buy it

The first 2 albums are very much weaker then their later companions and it's no wonder that Romain, Daughter of the Fireplace and Many Are Called remianed in their live set for so long as they are the only really decent tracks on the first two albums. There is a lot of filler on these ,stretched out jams and much weaker songs.

But for Be Good To Yourself, Rhinos, Winos and Slow Motion this is unbeatable

But if you can afford it get the individual issues with plenty of bonus tracks

Man are the ultimate marmite test of 70s rock. There is no way a non believer could be converted. Every Man album is a testament to jamming , doped out progressive rock. Rhinos , Winos is an undisputed classic and is the greatest interpretation of West Coast coast psychedelia ever performed by a British band but there are at least two tremendous songs on each of their LPs, even if self-indulgence is only a short solo away. It's a shame The Welsh Connection isn't here, their magnificent swan song.

Great way to get all these recordings in one go and at a price that's good value. Sound quality on all disks could and should have been better but bear in mind how old some of these are.highly recommended if your interested in rock.

The best of this band. Very under rated. Better than many of their well known contemporaries. This set would make a fine addition to any lover of 70s prog rock.

Actually these albums are new to me. Saw them live and had some of their latter albums which appear on a 2nd package. Still getting into this.

In this, their 50th year, a great reminder of where it all began, Catch the MANband on tour in September. See you at the Half Moon, Putney!

I had hoped it would be better as I love the live album.

Had three of these on cassettes and one recorded from vinyl. Still sound as fresh as when I first heard them. Brilliant songwriting, very varied styles. These 'Original Album Series' sets are great and excellent value.
