It's all good music from the 70's.

"Your Song" by Elton John is one of the sweetest, most beautiful love ballads I've ever heard.

Format: Audio CD
This CD entitled Casey Kasem: Top Ten - 70's Singers & Songwriters has twenty great tunes from the `70s. Many of these tunes bring back great memories for me of junior high school dances with my girlfriend and I am sure these tunes will make you smile, too! Newcomers to this genre of music would do well to check out this album.

Carole King starts the track set off right with her smash hit, "It's Too Late." Carole sings this wonderfully and the backup vocalists sound so good, too. The guitar and percussion work well for the musical arrangement. "Your Song" by Elton John is one of the sweetest, most beautiful love ballads I've ever heard. Leave it to Elton to come up with something this big! "Your Song" has a lush musical arrangement and Elton's voice is rather strong; he never sounded better.

Cat Stevens sings his `Morning Has Broken" with its incredible piano and guitar work; Cat sings this with all his heart and soul and you can tell it's true when you listen to it. Eric Clapton turns in a more amusing, fun oriented "Lay Down Sally;" Eric sounds great and the guitar rocks! Don McLean's "American Pie" is an absolute must for any true blue collector of `70s music; Don sings this passionately and it all works brilliantly. Listen also for Norman Greenbaum's "Spirit In The Sky." "Spirit In The Sky" rocks and this is one tune that you'll never tire of!

Jim Croce's "I'll Have To Say I Love You In A Song" absolutely stuns me with its beauty; The guitar and more enhance the song while Jim sings this with style and grace. In addition, Carly Simon puts in her melancholy "That's The Way I've Always Heard It Should Be;" Carly sings this soulfully and she never misses a note. This is not Carly's most recognizable song, but it sure is moving.

This disc highlights several interesting hits from the 70's. I didn't know all of the song names, but when I listened I found I recognized nearly all of them. Softer tunes like Jim Croce's "I'll Have to Say I Love You in a Song" and Al Stewart's "Year of the Cat" contrast well with mild blues in Clapton's "Lay Down Sally" and classic rockers like "Spirit in the Sky." It's a good mix if you like a variety of styles on one disc.

One word of caution - the version of Don McClean's "American Pie" is cut rather short at 4:10. The original is over eight minutes! It was disheartening and a little ironic to hear the music fade out halfway through the story in a song about "the day the music died."

Rarely do I review a music cds.Yet,this is one of the finest collections of rock music around.The cd has a smooth flow of all the great tunes of the 70's,compared to others of the same era.Many times and more often than not,a genre collection has three or four great songs and the rest mediocre fillers.Every folk song is a hit on this cd.My only qualm with the cd is the arrangment on the songs.It should have started with the early 70's ,then mid 70's and ending with the latter 70's. It's pure 70's musical heaven anyway.So many current songs lack the depth,creativity and magic of that far-out epoch.And I think that's why it still sells quite well today.

If you grew up in the 1970's with your parent's music - on 8 track, no less, this kickin' CD compilation will transport you back in time. Back in time to the days of cut off jean short-shorts, tube socks, & Trax tennis shoes. Smoking candy cigarettes, eating Lik M' Aid, Boo Berry cereal, cold bologna out of the package, and drinking Coke from a glass bottle.
Singer/Songwriters have a sound all of their own. It's THEIR OWN words that they are singing, so naturally, they have more feeling behind their performances.
1. It's Too Late - Carole King belts out her own tune whilst playing her piano...
2. Ain't No Sunshine - Bill Withers and his smooth R&B hit single
3. Chuck E.'s in Love - Rickie "The Marble Mouth" Lee Jones rambles on about Chuck E.
4. Lowdown - Boz Scaggs with his hit
5. Your Song - Elton John's ballad that was a huge hit
6. Morning Has Broken - Cat Stevens' and his religious crossover success
7. At Seventeen - Janis Ian and her teenaged ridden angst. Her one hit wonder.
8. Lay Down Sally - Eric Clapton's great country meets rock single
9. American Pie - Don McLean's tribute to "The Day The Music Died"
10. Please Come to Boston - Dave Loggins' sad Hit song
11. Summer Breeze - Seals & Crofts' fun, lazy Summertime song
12. Spirit in the Sky - Norman Greenbaum and his funky 60's throwback
13. Poetry Man - Phoebe Snow and her wonderful hit with a song and lyrics that are one of a kind
14. I'll Have to Say I Love You in a Song - Jim Croce's follow up hit to "Operator"
15. Hello It's Me - Todd Rundgren is another one hit wonder, but what a great tune
16. If You Could Read My Mind - Gordon Lightfoot's wonderful love song. True GORD'S GOLD

I put this CD in at work and everyone just raved about it. Every song, we were like, "This is a great song!" I don't recognize all the names on this album, but once I listened to it, I recognized every song. It's a wonderful complilation album, probably one of the best, since I loved every song on the CD and how rare is that?
thanks for reading
