Overview

Original Album Classics is a curious compilation of five original Weather Report LPs reissued on one CD; true fans of the band might scratch their heads a bit at this one. Included are the definitive albums I Sing the Body Electric, Sweetnighter and Mysterious Traveller. The less essential Black Market and their final official release, Night Passage, made the cut. Sorely missing: their first eponymously titled recording, the definitive Live in Tokyo, as well as Tale Spinnin' and Heavy Weather. Some completists might want this, but most devotees already have this material, and have pruned the chaff from the wheat.
