Original Album Series contains Curtis Mayfield's first five solo albums: Curtis (1970), Curtis Live! (1971), Roots (1971), Superfly (1972), and Back to the World (1973). As with other Original Album Series packages, each disc is in a paper, LP replica-style sleeve with reproductions of the front and back sides. The presentation isn't special -- Mayfield's catalog certainly deserves better treatment -- but the set retailed for around $18-20 when it was released in the U.S. in 2012. Several of Mayfield's most popular songs, including "(Don't Worry) If There's a Hell Below We're All Going to Go," "Superfly," and "Future Shock," are included here, and the albums are deep enough to warrant full attention from casual fans who might be interested only in the singles. ~ Andy Kellman
