    Excellent collection of '70s hits!

    I heard this whole CD in upstate New York in July 2007 during a summer road trip from Buffalo to New York City. Excellent collection. The problem I have with other '70s compilations is that they stop at 1975. It's like they're hesitant to clash early '70s hits with the disco of the late '70s. That hesistance and resistance stops completely with this collection,as this covers the entire decade. Most of the 10 years of the '70s is represented, and the biggest names like Barry White, Elton John, Jackson 5, Donna Summer, Bachman Turner Overdrive, Cher, Captain and Tennille and others are represented. Barry's Can't Get Enough still sounds fabulous, Donna's Bad Girls is still funky,Elton John's Benny and the Jets is still superb and Billy Preston's offering is a surprise here. Some personal favorites like the glorious Peaches and Herb ballad Reunited are on here. The funky and ultra catchy Dancing Queen is included and lastly Love Will Keep Us together is solid pop craft from Captain and Tennille, even down to Toni's I Will/I Will/I Will/ I Will/IIIIII Willlll before the song's final moments. Every angle of '70s pop is represented here on this CD. It's best to hear this CD in the summer, when older songs tend to get played the most at cookouts and outdoor events. Many of these songs still sound fresh and melodic to this day.
