It's tempting to say that "Greatest Hit" would be a more appropriate title for this quickie budget collection, but even that would be a misnomer; bizarrely, Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds' biggest hit, 1975's number-one smash "Fallin' in Love (Again)," isn't included. (Yes, 1971's "Don't Pull Your Love (Out)" is present and accounted for. None of the other songs have unnecessary parentheses in them.) The other nine tracks are failed singles and album tracks, including unimpressive versions of "Ain't No Woman (Like the One I've Got)" and the Grass Roots' "Annabella," and a tiresome medley of "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and "You've Got a Friend." "Don't Pull Your Love (Out)" and "Fallin' in Love (Again)" are both available on volumes of Rhino's superlative Super Hits of the 70s: Have a Nice Day series. Buy those, skip this.
