3 stars A double CD set containing 3 very different Earth and Fire albums and an album's worth of singles and B-sides, "3 Originals" is more than just an introduction to Earth and Fire.

If you can get this set for about the same price as the first two albums, and don't mind some drivel, then by all means get it. Most of what you will like will be on the first CD anyway.
