This incredible value CD box set comprises five original albums housed in individual cardboard sleeves. This set includes the following five albums: Crocodiles, Heaven Up Here, Porcupine, Ocean Rain and Echo & The Bunnymen.

Echo & the Bunnymen's dark, swirling fusion of gloomy post-punk and The Doors -inspired psychedelia brought the group a handful of British hits in the early '80s, while attracting a cult following in the United States. Driven by the majestic voice and outsized persona of singer McCulloch and the frequently brilliant guitar work of Will Sergeant, the band started off as an angular post-punk group on their first album, 1980's Crocodiles, but by the time of 1984's Ocean Rain they had become cinematically baroque. After stripping their sound down to basics for 1987's self-titled album, which produced the deathless hit Lips Like Sugar, the band ran into problems and experienced tragedy (like the death of drummer Pete de Freitas), but eventually McCulloch and Sergeant cemented a musical bond that cracked but never shattered over the course of two decades of albums
