Customer Review

TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICEon 1 November 2008
The contents of this little box catch EW&F in their hottest period(1975-1979) when they could do little wrong. There surely isn't a cheaper legal way of acquiring these five albums and they're all corkers - probably their best. For the uninitiated, they funk with a power, precision and sheer joy rarely achieved by anyone else, the vocals and horn arrangements are fabulous and the overall quality of the songs on all five albums shows that they're far more than a singles band.

On top of this they're recently remastered and two of them (Spirit and I Am) contain bonus tracks. The packaging is basic - a little cardboard slipcase, with the individual albums in miniaturised replicas of the original lp sleeves - and in fact the only downsides are that there are no paper inners to protect the CDs from the cardboard sleeves and the track listings on these are either illegible or nearly so; however, the main box does feature legible track listings - it won't tell you anything beyond the titles but it does direct you to a website featuring the full details. But if you're considering buying this, you're probably not that bothered about ostentatious packaging, and it's worth noting that CD packaging doesn't get much greener than this, or much smaller for this many CDs.

If you want to own these albums on CD this set is unbeatable, if you don't know much EW&F (as I didn't) it's a great way to get to know one of the finest funk and soul acts of their era. Stunning.
