Sadly, 1972 will be remembered for the massacre at the Munich Olympics and power cuts and strikes at home but I also recall it as my favourite year for music. I was eight years old and vividly remember the excitement generated by the bands of the era. The seventies are often sneered at (usually by people who weren't around at the time) for the hairstyles and the clothes but musically, this decade has never been bettered. When I saw that a compilation of songs from 1972 had been released I scrolled down to inspect the selections and was very pleasantly surprised. As a rock music fan I would have left out Shirley Bassey and Hurricane Smith; Without You by Harry Nilsson is on my list of songs I never want to hear again (the "Lady In Red" list) but I accept that the compilers wanted to give an overview of musical styles and the rest of the choices reflect the quality of 1972 pretty well. ELO's innovative and daring 10538 Overture and The Move's hellraising California Man are inspired and often overlooked. Roy Wood is featured again as the leader of Wizzard with the brilliant Ball Park Incident. The inclusion of Fireball by Deep Purple is also a bold inclusion on a pop/rock cd. I was delighted to see All The Young Dudes by Mott The Hoople, a fine and talented band, who, with a David Bowie song written in 20 minutes in a bid to revive Mott's flagging fortunes(and the man himself on backing vocals), delivered the release of the year. I can still see Ian Hunter on Top Of The Pops delivering this supreme song in his cool, understated style. Ultimate praise must go to the person who decided to feature Burlesque by Family, not a song which casual listeners will recall but Roger Chapman's unique vocals helped to make this song a stunning piece of music.Read more ›

1972 Was most certainly a great year on the pop-scene 'Glam-Rock' had become much of the charts
make-up back then with many great-names around to enjoy.
Though this 20 number CD has a lot of great sounds missing, it really is a great reflection of the music
mood of that time, I shouldn't think those looking for the elusive track to slot into their collection will
have much luck with this one, it's quite simply jam-packed with popular Hit-Material of the day.
I'll jot down a few of the tracks on offer on this release to act as an example of it's overall content, I think
pop fans will, if not already in your collection, might just want this one........'T.Rex' --'Telegram Sam'.......
'Wizzard' --'Ball Park Incident'........'E.L.O' --'10538 Overture'........'Lindisfarne' --'Meet Me On The Corner'
.....'Sly and Family Stone' --'Family Affair'........and........'Johnny Cash' --'A Thing Called Love'.......I have
merely highlighted just half a dozen of the truly great memories harboured on-board.
Certainly a 70's disc worth a second glance from the 'Top of The Pops' music series.

Fab music from the 70's. Great for a nostalgia night or as a gift from someone who was around in the 70's.

Purchased this for my In-Laws Wedding Anniversary, as a small gift to open. Would've been good to have had all the number ones of that year, however, the 'flow' and feel of the album is great. Item was delivery swiftly and was well packaged, and the price isnt to be sniffed at.

Apart from the 'obvious' tracks like 'Silver Machine' there are loads of memory jerking tracks here to take you back.

Great gift - these are like little time capsules that transport you back in time. This was a great present as it had the songs that were popular in the year that they were born.
