The Collection [Box Set]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
Sony's lazily constructed "three-fer" series continues with ELO's Discovery, Face the Music, and A New World Record. Besides the 2001 reissue of Discovery -- the other two are in their original Columbia House-style '80s pressings -- all three discs feature the same tracks in the same order that appear on the individual releases, as well as their accompanying liner notes. This collection is only notable for its lack of a jewel case, as each reissue album is roughly the same price if purchased individually.
