I enjoyed this collection, seeing that I'm a 70's kid. However, there are at least two glaring errors I found: 1) The album cover shown for REO Speedwagon's 'Hi Infidelity' LP is actually for a 1990's album called 'The Earth, A Small Man, His Dog and A Chicken'. 2) The release date shown for Boston's debut LP is June 1977. To my knowledge, the correct date is November 1976. The year 1976 is the publishing/copyright date on the recording. There may be other errors, but I have not perused long enough.
