 Love this reissue series and the box set that collects them all. It would only be better if it had included Greatest Hits, the 1970 LP that includes 3 non-LP singles that you won't get anywhere on this reissue series. With that album--one of the most popular hits albums ever--this would be truly complete. I agree that Dance to the Music is the weakest (that medley really drags me down), but I even love the first album (and am glad the original cover art has been restored).

 Intrepid and solvent folks can look online for a Japanese mini-LP box set that DOES include Greatest Hits.
