4.0 out of 5 stars Collectors' prize January 18, 2003
Format:Audio CD
70's compilation CD's are everywhere. This collection, one in the EMI series of "Lost Hits...", however goes where few others have gone. Here, among the generous 20 tracks are encountered a few familiar top-20 tunes. The draw here though, is the appearance of many seldom-, if ever, found-on-CD top-100 tracks from that decade. An amazing ten of these are one-hit, alabeit minor, wonders. A few of the highlights include "Neanderthal Man" from Hotlegs, the group that evolved into 10cc, Charlie's Angel Cheryl Ladd's "Think It Over" and "When I'm Dead And Gone" by Brit's McGuinness Flint whose members included Gallagher and Lyle. These rarities, interspersed with the better-known hits, make for an interesting musical sampling of the music of the airwaves during the 70's. As such, it is of interest to the casual listener but even more so to the more zealous collector of 70's music.

The sound quality is adequate with all tracks in stereo. While this is a no-frills piece with no liner notes, it is a musically generous, interesting and desirable collection suitable to the fan of 70's charting airplay.

Note: Amazon in their brilliance (or better... lack of, that is) has attached this review to another CD titled the same as the CD this review actually refers to. This review is for the Capitol piece with an image of 45 rpm records on the front cover and a magnifying glass over the track listings on the back.

4.0 out of 5 stars A mixed bag of 70's classics October 3, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
From the highly recognizable (Maxine Nightingale, The Sylvers, Rick Springfield and others) to the obscure (Hotlegs and Flash), this collection covers a lot of 70's music territory. The hits are certainly here, as well as the misses (Moon Martin's "Rolene" peaked at #30 in Oct. 79 and Desmond Child & Rouge "Our Love is Insane" made it to #51 in March of 79), even a song some radio stations wouldn't play because it was a little too depressing. No, not Robert John's "Sad Eyes", but Bloodrock's "D.O.A." Frankly, my favorite song on this record is not a chart topper by any means, but it's one of the reasons I picked up this collection - "Saturday Morning Confusion" by Bobby Russell. And it's cool to break out your air drums for Cozy Powell too. A definite must-have for your 70's music collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun reminder of forgotten songs from the decade... January 7, 2014
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Most of these songs are admittedly not earth-shaking rock and roll classics -- they're mostly forgotten singles that may or may not strike a memory nerve in your brain. But songs like Robert John's "Sad Eyes," Moon Martin's "Rolene" or Cozy Powell's "Dance with the Devil" run the gamut from alternative rock (for its day) to pur pop puffery. They're fun, and if you remember the songs from back in the day, it's nice to hear them again since most are not often included on oldies compilations.

Well I like a few songs on this but you need to check out all the music before purchasing it. I am 50's baby so I can relate to this music.
