Format: Audio CD
I'm not going to critique these individual albums, if you want that there are plenty of thoughtful reviews alongside the individual albums. In this review I will be discussing the merits of this particular collection.

This set collects the first five Jefferson Airplane albums (Jefferson Airplane Takes Off, Surrealistic Pillow, After Bathing At Baxters, Crown Of Creation and the live Bless Its Pointed Little Head) in the same remastered versions with bonus tracks that were released in 2003. So you get the original albums plus a hefty batch of extras for the low price of around $35.00. Unfortunately what you do not get is any liner notes. You also don't get any credits either (although there is a web address on the back of the box that gives writing credits and recording dates but not much else). Each individual disc is packaged in a mini replica of the original vinyl and the discs are packed into a small cardboard box. I guess the somewhat limited packaging is the tradeoff for the cheap price. On the other hand the 2003 reissues would probably run you about fifty bucks so you do save a bit with this set. Whether you decide to buy it or not depends on how important those liner notes are to you. Me, I picked up the cheap box set and bought the 2003 reissue of Volunteers thereby getting (almost) the complete output of the classic Jefferson Airplane for roughly 45 bucks. Sounds like a pretty great deal to me!

By Stuart Jefferson - Published on

For anyone who wants to purchase the five albums listed, this is a good deal. This is part of a collection of similar titles that have been released over the years. While the title says 'Original Album Classics'-they're really the updated releases with all the bonus tracks. Each disc slips inside it's own thick cardboard reproduction of the original album cover. The downside is that there's no paper protection for the discs, but as long as you're careful you won't get any scratches. The five discs are then slipped into a fairly flimsy cardboard case, open at one end-beware the discs don't slip out accidentally. There are no notes whatsoever-just the music in the latest updated sound. This is a good deal if all you want is the music. Cheers.

Forget the negative reviews of this product. It is the best I could find. I have all three of these albums on vinyl and the Cds are comparable to them. Also I could not find Bark on Cd anywhere else. Great Buy, I'll say.

Great music at a very reasonable price. April 11 2013
By Mr. Robert F. Nutter - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Surrealistic Pillow and Crown Of Creation are absolute classic albums. All five are good reproductions of the originals. I've pretty much worn out my old vinyls, so I was very pleased with this set.

Great old psychedelia at a bargain price. Jan. 15 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
A great collection of Jefferson Airplane's early albums, with the original artwork on cardboard sleeves, like mini LP's. These discs contain all the original material, and most include additional tracks as well, some mono mixes that were released as singles, some alternate takes and other miscellanea.
Properly mastered with the original distortion-free dynamic range and tonal balance in place. If you're a fan and are missing any of these discs, you can pick up the entire set for not much more than one of these records would cost. Highly recommended.
