    I'm sure we are all familar with the "Original Album Series" sets that gather 5 albums from an artist. Such as this one...

    [​IMG]

    Simply put, pick any artist and choose 5 studio albums that you feel best represents both the greatness and scope of the artist.

    For fantasy purposes, you can either bundle your set in a 5 CD box or a fantasy 5 LP slipcase.

    For example, here are the three sets I would put together for three of my all-time favorite artists:

    Kiss
    Kiss 1974
    Rock And Roll Over 1976
    Love Gun 1977
    Alive II 1977 (Part studio material so I'm allowing it) :)
    Unmasked 1980

    Led Zeppelin
    Led Zeppelin II 1969
    Led Zeppelin III 1970
    Led Zeppelin IV 1971
    Houses Of The Holy 1973
    In Through The Out Door 1979

    Elvis Presley
    Elvis Presley 1956
    King Creole 1958
    Blue Hawaii 1961
    Viva Las Vegas (Reissued LP configuration) 1964
    That's The Way It Is 1970 (Part studio material so I allowed it)
