Original Album Series Box Set Review:

This box set contains all the Warner Bros. Montrose Records from the 70's (1973-1978). A few things. 1. None of the CD's appear overcompresed or remastered for that matter. 2. The disc sound great; however, and do not distort when cranked up, which for the loudness wars crowd will make a difference. 3. The 5 star rating is for the complete works included here. 4. Two of these CD's, Warner Bros Presents and Open Fire are climbing to higher prices for the individual CD's so you can grab them in this set for a fraction of the price. 5. The box set is simple with each CD housed in its original album artwork cardboard sleeve. There is no booklet or bells and whistles. Now on to the Music.

1. Montrose - Montrose. (5 out 5 Legendary Album) If you need a history lesson on this first CD take a look around the net, you'll find everything you need to know. Montrose, Sammy Hagar with a just over 32 minute 8 song masterpiece. Pick a track, any track- they are all great. Some are the stuff legends are made of and those tracks include- Rock The Nation, Bad Motor Scooter, Space Station #5, Rock Candy, and Good Rockin' Tonight. This is a top 10 70's rock fest.

2. Paper Money - (3.5 out of 5 Stars) While this falls short of the historic effort made with the first CD, there are plenty of excellent tracks here. They are: Paper Money, I Got The Fire, Spaceage Sacrifice, and one of my favorites Connection.

3. Warner Bros Presents - (4 out of 5 stars) With Sammy Hagar departed and line up changes This effort returned to a more guitar oriented hard rockin' affair. Don't let that stop you. Bob James can really sing and the song writing is very good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Montrose treasure February 24, 2012
By wdjr
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
These albums are really hard to find. When I found this package I had to take a second look to see if it was real. When I received my package, which was the size of a single jewel case, I thought this can't be right. But then I opened the package and found five mini albums, each in their own sleeve, slipped into one outer cover. For the money I feel it's a great package. If your a rock fan, you've got to get Montrose's "Montrose" album. I would recommend this package for that disc alone!

This is one terrific set! I love the compact packaging with each CD in its own sleeve like an old LP. Cool!
But to me, what is on these CDs, lacks the punch we come to expect from this 16 bit technology. The sound is rather flat and lacking bass. Was expecting more from these Rhino releases. Here in the states Wounded Bird released most of these CDs that didn't sound any better than these. May be the tapes that exists, I don't know. All I do know, they sound flat. At least the tape hiss is gone! Of course, the older ones sound the least impressive where as Jump On It sounds the best (and that's not saying much). But we buy this collection for the "actual" music and not "how it sounds". Maybe with our high technologies here in 2012 we expect these to sound brand new, but its not gonna happen. These are awesome recordings from one of (to me) the greatest guitarist that ever lived (sorry David Gilmour, you're number two). And for this cheap price (under twenty dollars) this is a great set, just wished it sounded better. Maybe one day, a great sound mixer will tinker with the original recordings and bring out details we never heard before. That is what I miss most about the SACD format. That format gave music a new life! But that's a whole new discussion.

5.0 out of 5 stars great rock from a legend March 15, 2012
Format:Audio CD
This is a great set featuring five great cds. The rockier ones are the best by far but the jazzier one is very well done. Sadly Montrose is gone (died 2012) but his music lives on. And this is a good remaster effort to enjoy. Sammy hagar is in the first few cds as well.

The CD's are great. I was thrilled to find a set of five CD's that saved us money over buying each one separately. Open Fire is nearly impossible to find, which is a great demonstration of Ronnie's true talent. We have the vinyl album of Open Fire and never play it anymore. Ronnie's original Montrose album is a powerhouse of sound and innovention from its debut forward.

The compact box of CD's consists of five small jackets each containing a CD. These cardboard jackets look like mini vinyl album covers, which was perfect for safekeeping. We are so pleased with the purchase.

His music lives on, and we bought 7 of the compilations to give as gifts to family for Easter. Ronnie's nieces, nephews, and brothers were thrilled with our gift. We cherish our memories of the man.

Herein lies my problem with Amazon: I am disappointed to see the CD set went down in price by > $7.00, and I ordered 7 of them, so I feel Amazon should give a refund. I noticed the drop in price before we even received our CD's. My order created a demand, apparently, and Amazon is choosing not to refund the difference. I could have ordered 7 more, sent back 7 intact, but I just wanted them to do what was right by giving me a refund of $50 (a little more than $50). They have yet to answer my inquiry. I am so disappointed in Amazon. We are Prime members for as long as it exists, and yet we pay more than others pay for the same product.

Count me as an unhappy Amazon purchaser with this transaction. I didn't want to be upset with Amazon.
