Collectables repackaged and re-released four LPs by R&B vocal quintet Blue Magic -- Blue Magic, 13 Blue Magic Lane, The Magic of the Blue, and Blue Magic, Major Harris, Margie Joseph Live! -- as a five-CD set. It's not a bad way to acquire the albums if you don't already own them, but the casual listener looking for the hits "Sideshow" and "Three Ring Circus" should check out The Magic of the Blue: Greatest Hits. ~ Al Campbell
