4 stars THE CODONA TRILOGY is as it sounds, the entire three albums in one boxed set (see individual albums for reviews.) I have just a few comments about this particular compilation:

First of all, it is not remastered. The production is very, very good and i cannot find any information about anything being done with it for reissue so i can only assume that it was not. I have not heard any of these albums outside of this release.

I was very disappointed by the packaging. Gone is all of the album cover artwork. The whole package is a white box with each album in a white paper sleeve. Even the discs themselves have NO track listings. The one saving grace of this set as far as special packaging goes is the detailed historical booklet. It tells you everything you could possibly want to know about this band's entire run from 1978-1982.

I got this box set as a convenient way to get all three albums together but they were all released on CD around 1990 and if the sound quality is exactly the same as it is here then i would opt for the actually individual CDs because there are no bonus tracks or any other additional goodies other than the historical info. This is the simplest of reissues with only a nice booklet being the exception.

Although slightly disappointed with the packaging it's the music that counts and it's all here in its entirety and to be fair the album covers on CODONA albums weren't the most artistic of the lot so it's not a horrible loss so i guess i will just have to be happy that i got this package at a decent price which is why it could possibly be so simple in the first place.
