The year 1978 was one of if not THE most influential year in music. Punk had reared its ugly head the previous year and transformed into new wave. Totally reinventing the music scene.
Disco also came to the fore with the hugely popular 'Saturday Night Fever' and 'Grease'. The soundtrack records would swamp the album chart, creating a marketing dream linking music and film genres which is very much in evidence today. Other musical styles were still popular. Be it old school ballads, reggae, country, pop. The list goes on. Such an array of different styles.
This CD has many lesser known hits which are definitely worth a listen. No Abba or Bee Gees, but then again we all have them somewhere in our collection surely! Buy this collection and see what influences you can hear in todays music.
