Great sounding box set with no pressing issues.
Vinyl is flat and quiet. Coloured discs look nice whilst spinning on my deck.
Well worth the money if you like War.

Box design and quality of sleeves are ok.
Unfortunately, as some mention, not all vinyl is perfect. Far from it!
My copy of the LP "Why Can't We Be Friends", for example, has several distortions on the A side.
It happens a lot with Optimal nowadays. Currently one of the worst vinyl pressing plants!
A wasted opportunity for a quality reissue of War's first 5 discs.

At £100 this is decent. 5 quality albums, all well pressed and on funky coloured vinyl. Theres nothing outstanding about it but it gets all the basics right. I wouldnt be paying more than i did because i still bet NM originals sound better, these are surely digital cuts

For all the bad ink Record Store Day gets in regards to poorly pressed lps this one hits it out of the park. I have nothing bad to say about this release. Flat colored heavy quiet vinyl in a beautiful box set with dent free original covers and scratch free liners. And oh yeah I forgot how good these old R&B early 70s recordings were. The only album lacking is the self titled first album. They obviously didn't hit their stride til Deliver the Word and the next 3 which were all very listenable. Still very findable at a decent price and worth $110-150.

Great albums. However, I have not seen any mention of my observation so I have to ask the question. Does anyone hear a persistent low Hz rumble on some albums? It’s very clear in the dead wax of Why can’t we be friends and All day music. World is a Ghetto sounds fine. I’m yet to listen to War and Deliver the world. Note. This is a question and not a critique of these beautiful albums

Superb! Vinyl looks great but sounds even better. Box and jackets are heavyweight and well done. Records arrive in poly lined sleeves ready to play. Just a wonderful collection of music right here.

Having no luck getting Rhino to replace my defective copy of the first album in this box. Very disappointed.

Two questions please. Are these all standard weight vinyls? Is the set numbered? Thanks.

WOW fantastic sound! So quiet, this is a must have box.

I saw the box has a “Made In Germany” sticker on it. I wonder if they used Optimal or Pallas?
