AllMusic Review by

Released in the U.K. in 2010, this volume of Original Album Series features the second through sixth studio albums from Michael Franks: The Art of Tea (1976), Sleeping Gypsy (1977), Burchfield Nines (1978), Tiger in the Rain (1979), and One Bad Habit (1980). Each disc is packaged individually within a thin cardboard pouch that replicates the front and back sleeve design of the original release. These albums are among Franks' best work; the fourth and fifth albums don't rate with the first three, but they do have their moments. The compact box sold for roughly the price of two or three full-price CDs.
