Pop, disco and soul
on 20 April 2004
This is quite a good compilation of 1970s hits. Representing a widespectrum of styles, the album contains classics like Blockbuster, RiversOf Babylon, All By Myself, Native New Yorker, Seasons In The Sun, WithoutYou, I Can't Stand The Rain etc. The best disco here is by Boney M,Eruption and Oddyssey. There is sublime pop in the form of Sweet, EricCarmen, Terry Jacks and Baccara, sweet soul by The Delfonics, Drifters andThree Degrees and even some classic country by Mary McGregor. The albumlacks good authentic rock hits and would have been better if it hadincluded something by the rockers of the period, like Rod Stewart, StatusQuo or Queen or even punk artists like The Clash or The Jam. Still, it'snot a bad collection and offers great listening pleasure if you're intopop, disco and soul.
