Although this album shares the title with an earlier version by the same name (and compiled by the same record label), there are some major differences here. The original album was vinyl and contained 22 hits; this version only includes 10 songs. Additionally, only six of the songs on this edition were found on the original record: these are "Believe In Music" by Gallery, "How Do You Do" by Mouth and MacNeal, "Sunny Days" by Edison Lighthouse, "Speak To The Sky" by Rick Springfield, "Money Back Guarantee" by Five-Man Electrical Band, and "Brandy" by Looking Glass. The other four songs were not included on that original album, even though they were popular hits at about the same time as the six that were included.

A better reissue of that 1972 album would have contained at least 20 of the 22 songs that were on the original version; and maybe all 22 if a CD is able to accommodate all of them. The original vinyl record squeezed 22 songs onto a (vinyl) disk with a 60-minute capacity, and that was only possible by cutting out parts of some songs and reducing their length. A compact disc with 80-minute capacity would probably be able to hold these 22 songs at their unedited full length. Such a remake would be a great improvement over the original vinyl record and certainly a better deal than this 10-song issue. It would also have earned 4 stars instead of two.

As a young Black kid from Watts, CA I was 13 years old when i purchased this album. My neighbors and friends thought I was strange when I used to blast these songs. My brother favorite was How Do You Do! Mine were Precious & Few, Brandy, and How Do You Do. We would play these songs every weekend. The decade of the 70"s had the best songs of R&B, Rock, and Jazz. My brothers and I would stay up at night to watch Don Kirsher's Rock Concert and The Midnight Special to see some of favorite rock artist perform. Rock On!!!

I was surprised to find a k-Tel compilation. These were the albums we used to buy when we had missed or couldn't afford all of the originals. There are some good tunes on here including "I Believe in Music" ( also "Nice to be With You, Big City Miss Ruth Ann") by Jim Gold and Gallery, The Token's classic by high pitched Robert John "The Lion Sleeps Tonight", Willem Duyn as "Mouth", and Maggie "MacNeal" belting out "How do You do". The classic slow song "Precious and Few" (also "Life and Breath") by Sonny Geraci, Walter Nims and the reast of Climax. Canada's Lighthouse (also "Pretty Lady, One Fine Morning, I Just Wanna be Your Friend" etc.) singing about "Sunny Days" and Rick "Jesse's Girl" Springfield's tune "Speak to the Sky". Bubble gum king Bobby Sherman's cut (also "La La La If I Had You") "Waiting at the Bus Stop". Another Canadian group, The Five Man Electrical Band with "Money Back Guarantee" (also "Signs, Julianna, Absolutely Right" etc.) and Austin Robert's ( also, "Rocky, My Song") "Something's Wrong With Me". The final cut is the finest song NEVER made into a video thankfully as your imagination takes you along with "Brandy (You're a Fine Girl") with Looking Glass. (also "Jimmy Loves Mary-Anne"). When we bought the vinyl K-tel albums there were always twenty to twenty two cuts on them. Admittingly they would edit out some of the song to fit them all in but these are CD's for crying out loud so "squeezing" up to twenty songs on this compilation wouldn't be difficult. It would make the title sound more reminiscent of the 70's, there was never a ten big hits album.

What an absolute delight to find this album, a staple from my childhood. I thought I would never hear this album again. Back in the olden days of the 1970s, I would listen to the phonographic version of this collection over and over again. For those of you old enough to remember, K-TEL frequently put out albums during that time , featuring the hot hits of the day. Included in this little gem, are "Speak to the Sky" by a pre-General Hospital, pre-"Jesse's Girl" Rick Springfield. Quite frankly, this is the only Springfield song I honestly like. Also featured is one of my favorite childhood songs of all time "Brandy", by one-hit wonders Looking Glass. If you are my age (46) you'll remember a song from the early 70s (1971, I'm guessing) called "How Do You Do?" It was performed by another one-hit wonder, Mouth and MacNeil, but again one of my favorites.(The chorus went something like "How do you do, uh huh, I thought that nah ne nah, just me and you") Sounds silly but if you're old enough, you'll remember it. The only disappointing track is the gooey "Precious&Few" by Climax, a staple of AM soft rock at the time.
