The tracklisting includes all the essential '70s artists including Slade, Mud, T-Rex, Blondie and many others.
Top customer reviews
also found the 70's a blast, so many great acts emerged onto the scene
With compilations such as this, there is always going to be 'great' or
'favourite' artists and songs you remember as 'classic' missing.
I've often said of these collections that for collectors searching for
elusive gem's it's unlikely you'll find a rare item on board, which again
is the case here, except, though not a song i'd ever of searched for,
there is a number on board I can't remember seeing on any other of my
many 70's compilations, this being...'Fiddler's Dram's' --'Day trip to
Bangor' ....I do however remember the number.
Like I've mentioned before, for me, it's all about listening to many
favourites presented in different track-order....freshens things up.
If like myself you were listening to and enjoying the music back then
i'm sure you could easily list 100 or more from the 70's you liked or
I know if I were to write a list i'd almost certainly include maybe 30
or so of the tracks on board.
The Following 20 or so would be among them........................
'The Rubettes' --'Sugar Baby Love' ...'Blondie' --'Sunday Girl' ...
'Sweet' --'Blockbuster' ...'Clout' --'Substitute' ...'M' --'Pop Music'
...'Gloria Gaynor' --'I Will Survive' ...'The Jackson's' --'ABC' ...
'Terry Jacks' --'Season's in the Sun' ...'Dawn' --'Tie a Yellow Ribbon
round the old Oak Tree' ...'Middle of the Road' --'Chirpy Chirpy Cheep
Cheep' ...'Paper Lace' --'Billy Don't be a Hero' ...'Rod Stewart' --
'Maggie May' ...'Gilbert O'Sullivan' --'Alone Again' (naturally) ...
'The New Seekers' --'I'd like to teach the World to Sing' (probably the
most remembered 'Coke' advert ever ?)...'Dr Hook' -- 'When you're in love
with a Beautiful Woman' ...'Leo Sayer' --'When I Need You' ...'Dan Hill'
--'Sometimes When We Touch' ...'Tammy Wynette' --'Stand by your Man' ...
'The Commodores' --'Three Times a Lady' and 'Julie Covington's' --
'Don't Cry For me Argentina'
Just an example of what is on board, I could add many more songs I remember
well, that are on the track list..........which just shows how many favourite
memories of that time are on board to enjoy.
Like an earlier reviewer i'd have to agree the title 'Greatest Ever' Seventies
Pop' 'Definitive' is a claim too far with so many fantastic acts missing,
however, it is a good collection of memories.
Must Admit i'm a little baffled as to why the 'T Rex' track that was included
was preferred to their many better known tracks such as ...'Deborah' 'Ride a
White Swan' 'Telegram Sam' 'Jeepster' 'Hot Love' 'Metal Guru' or 'Twentieth
Century Boy' .....of course 'Marc Bolan' recorded many worthy contenders on
his albums back then.......maybe i'm 'nit-picking' ??
