'SUPERB EXAMPLE OF THE 70'S POP-SCENE'
on 28 November 2013
An earlier reviewer 'Mr S.J. Clarke' of course makes some valid points, that aside
many would also point out, of course, that many of the acts that truly made the 70's
swing are absent from the track-list (if like myself you are a keen collector of
these times and before, you've got 'Queen' 'Bowie' 'Slade' 'Wings' 'John Lennon' 'Abba'
'Meatloaf' ect' collections I suspect)
However what has been included is a pretty good reflection of what was good about the
'Pop-Scene' back when.
On disc one we have...'T.Rex' --'Metal Guru'...'Bay City Rollers' --'Bye Bye Baby'...
'Boney M' --'Rivers of Babylon'...'Gladys Knight and the Pips' --'Midnight Train To
Georgia'...and...'Sweet' --'Blockbuster'...just a few of the big sounds of the day...
on disc two...'David Essex' --'Hold me Close'...'Mott the Hoople' --'All the Young Dudes'
'Baccara' --'Sorry I'm a Lady'...'Tina Charles' --'I Love To Love'...'Dr Hook' --'Sylvia's
Mother'...and...'Eruption' --'One Way Ticket'...again just to highlight a few of the superb
sounds on disc two, on disc three...''The Isley Brothers' --'That Lady'...'The New Seekers'
--'You Won't Find another Fool Like Me'...'Dawn' --'Tie a Yellow Ribbon on the ole' Oak Tree'
and...'The Pointer Sisters' --'Fire'...a few reminders of the seventies, on disc four...
'The Drifters' --'There Goes My First Love'...'Tammy Wynette' --'D.I.V.O.R.C.E.'...'The
Three Degrees' --'When will I see You Again'...'Perry Como' --'And I Love You So'...and
'Denise Williams' --'Too Much, Too Little, Too Late'...one or two of the tracks to enjoy on
disc four...on disc five...'Billy Paul' --'Dancing on a Saturday Night'...'The Glitter Band'
--'Goodbye my Love'...'Lynne Anderson' --'Rose Garden'...'Leo Sayer' --'One Man Band'...and
'Linda Lewis' --'It's In His Kiss' (Shoop Shoop Song)...again some of the gems on disc five.
I've pinpointed around half a dozen or so tracks on each of the five discs just to give an
indication of what pulled me-in, it's a great reminder of those times,'GREAT NAMES' 'GREAT
SOUNDS' on board this 5-Disc Compilation.
If you are a collector you'll almost certainly not find too many, if any tracks you don't
already own, however it's often nice to sit down and play songs you remember in different
The compilation is currently being sold on this site for just £5.00, that's 5p a song, got
to be worth checking out ?
