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
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.
