Overview

So much occurred during the '70s -- politically, economically, and musically -- that it seems silly to try and encapsulate it all in a half-hour sitcom. So, "That '70s Show" spends most of its time exploring the hilarious monotony of teenage life in the Midwest, with a '70s backdrop. While the era merely provides a setting for the action, those involved with the show have paid great attention to providing believable details, including music, which finds its way onto two accompanying discs: JAMMIN' and its harder-edged cousin ROCKIN'. The JAMMIN' album surveys the decade's strange range of disco and soul. And while it attempts to skirt the cheesiness of a TV-only compilation, weddings and bar mitzvahs may have permanently ruined some of the best songs from this era. But if it's a dance party vibe you're going for, this is definitely the disc you need to own, because no matter how discerning the music lover, no one can resist the urge to boogie to tunes like Rufus's "Tell Me Something Good," the Spinners' "Rubberband Man," KC and the Sunshine Band's "Get Down Tonight," Parliament's "Tear the Roof Off the Sucker (Give up the Funk)," and others that you can probably name by Kool & the Gang, the Average White Band, the Staple Singers, and the Ohio Players.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Gina Boldman
That '70s Show Presents That '70s Album: Jammin' is based on the Fox sitcom That '70s Show -- a somewhat bawdy but harmless comedy about teens in the Me Decade -- and the CD mimics the show's sentiment and attitude quite accurately. The songs are mostly oldie radio staples and include Wild Cherry's "Play That Funky Music," the Average White Band's "Pick Up the Pieces," the Three Degrees' "When Will I See You Again," Kool & the Gang's "Jungle Boogie," Tower of Power's "So Very Hard to Go," and the Isley Brothers' "Fight the Power." These tracks are available on countless other compilations, so Jammin' is really for rabid fans of the TV show.
