A must buy for 70's music fans, a great collection of music from this era and I really enjoyed it.

Listening to each song was like going back in a time machine to the good old days.

Here comes another collection from the seventies-this time from Universal's "Gold" series. It does a good job combining rock, R & B, funk and disco. Even though it's well put together, it's somewhat expendable. What keeps this collection from being essential is that with a few exceptions, practically all of the tracks are in their edited versions. Also, many of these versions can be found on other compilations. But with the first disc running 78 1/2 minutes and the second 77 1/2, it's a worthwhile listening experience. I'll only recommend this title to anyone who's new to it or doesn't mind shorter versions of songs.

For everyone else, it's not really necessary but you won't regret getting it if you do.

By the way, these tracks are in their unedited versions:
More Than A Feeling-Boston
Heart Of Glass-Blondie
I'm Not In Love-10cc
She's Gone-Hall & Oates
Fooled Around And Fell In Love-Elvin Bishop

Format: Audio CD
From new wave (The Cars, Blondie) to disco (Donna Summer, Gloria Gaynor) and Southern rock (Lynyrd Skynyrd) to funk (Earth, Wind & Fire, The Commodores), Hip-O's 40-track collection is packed with some of the biggest hits of the era.

Not only did the decade provide a variety of musical styles, the way music was presented to the public was changing, too. The once dominant Top 40 AM radio gave way to FM stations and AOR formats. As such you get a mixed bag of LP versions (for example, the 5:14 version of "She's Gone" and the 5:59 version of "I'm Not in Love) along with radio edits ("Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?" is cut from 4:33 to 3:18 and "Blinded by the Light" is nearly cut in half--the LP version was 7:08 while the single version was 3:47). Since many listeners will recognize both versions, it's not a big deal that about half the songs are presented in their single-release version. [I do, however, have a complaint with the version of "Maggie May" that was used. The LP version was 5:45 and the radio edit was 5:11. The version here is futher truncated to 3:41!]

The 20-page booklet is serviceable, but hardly essential. There are a handful of pictures, track listing (with release dates and highest chart position) and a 6-page essay by Mike Ragogna.[The essay does clarify that in Springsteen's lyrics to "Blinded by the light," he in fact wrote "...revved up like a deuce..."--NOT a feminine hygiene product. So could we all start singing the right words?!!]

If you're looking for a fun trip down memory lane, it's hard to beat '70s GOLD. [Running Time: Disc 1 - 78:34, Disc 2 - 77:29] VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

My experience in the past with the various Universal "Gold" collections has been very good. The titles are good representations of the era, the analog to digital transference is good and it is all original music- no cover bands. But I have to say there is nothing very special here. As another reviewer put it- Nothing here that you couldn't get anywhere else. Anyone who had an even half-way comprensive 70's Rock collection would pass on this CD. Even though I love the "Universal Gold" guys to death I have to give this CD set three stars. (Maybe it's just a case of "You can't please all the people all the time")

So often these greatest hits of an era collections include a handful of true greatest hits and are filled out with lessers songs and the occasional obscure song I don't even remember from the era in question (and I thought I listened to ALL of it growing up in the 70s...). This collection bears no resemblance to such offerings.

Pretty much from the first cut on the first CD to the last on the second, this is a bona fide collection of 70s Gold. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Song after song, this collection will not only take you back to the 70s but will remind you of what made 70s rock so good - why so much of it is being ripped off or diluted these days on TV commercials and elevator muzak (and why so much of it continues to get play time!).

This collection is the Real Deal. Get it! Do not pass go, do not worry about the $200 - head straight for the 70s with this fine collection.

OK, you say, nothing can be that good. You want to know the down low? Here goes: I would have selected a different Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes song (I prefer "If You Don't Know Me By Now"). And, OK, there may be a few songs excluded I might rank as better/more representative than one song or another that was included. But there are no dogs - no "how did that get included?" songs. This is a very good collection of 70s music. And, hey, part of the fun of a greatest hits collection is debating the missing ones that "should-a".

So enjoy! Put on the headphones and crank it up. I'll see you when you get back to this millenium.

I am a fan of most of the Hip-O Gold series compilations and this is one of the best and the best 70s compilation out there. Many compilations try to stick with one record label or use cheaper "live" recordings... this compilations chooses some of the best represtations of some of the best artists of the 70s.

This album differs from some of the other Hip-O compilations by not going in cronological order. The reason for this I believe is there were many different styles of music in the 70s and if you go in order this would not flow well. They group all the music by the style of music so you don't have classic rock mixed in with disco.

Some people will look at a compilation and notice there favorite artist isn't here. Well the way I look at all compilations is I usually have albums or best ofs already of my favorite artists so it never really bothers me.
