Overview

The budget-priced collection Hits of the '70s gathers a wide range of the decade's top singles, from Terry Jacks' smarmy yet catchy "Seasons in the Sun" to the ebullient disco of Hues Corporation's "Rock the Boat" to the deadpan cool of Lou Reed's "Walk on the Wild Side." The set highlights most of the '70s' main musical trends, including classic rock like Brewer & Shipley's "One Toke Over the Line" and the Guess Who's "American Woman"; soul hits like Gladys Knight & the Pips' "Midnight Train to Georgia" and Main Ingredient's "Everybody Plays the Fool"; and pure pop like the Bay City Rollers' "Saturday Night" and the Raspberries' "Go All the Way." Melanie, Jefferson Starship, Harry Nilsson, Al Stewart, Glen Campbell, and Roger Whitakker are some of the other '70s stars on this entertaining compilation.
