AllMusic Review by

This three-disc compilation, part of Sony's extensive Original Album Classics series, bundles the first three albums from Toto: 1978's platinum Toto, 1979's gold Hydra, and the 1981 holding pattern Turn Back -- the commercial -disappointing calm before the storm of Toto IV. The discs are presented as they were when they were first released on CD, with standard jewel cases that slide inside basic cardboard sleeves. Sold cheaply -- sometimes at roughly the same price as one midline CD -- the box contains some of the band's biggest hits and most notable songs, including "Hold the Line," "Georgie Porgy," "99," and "Goodbye Elenore."
