The Box Set Series Review

by Timothy Monger

From the Sony Legacy label comes this career-spanning four-disc set from arena rock favorites REO Speedwagon. After forming in Champaign, Illinois in the late '60s, the band went on to find mainstream success in the '70s and especially the early to mid-'80s, their most popular period. Top Ten soft rock hits like "Take It on the Run" and "Keep on Loving You" came to define the band's sound, but throughout this collection's 40 songs are a number of other styles showing their range. High on quality material, but low on packaging and notes, this box set is a way to own all the major highlights of REO Speedwagon's career on a budget.
