Pure 70's has some excellent tunes from the 1970s on it; although it is far from being complete. You would need a big box set for that! To be fair, however, you do get 18 songs here and that's a pretty good value for your money. The quality of the sound is excellent and I really like that artwork, too.

The album starts with Free performing a huge hit for them entitled "All Right Now." This rocks hard and that guitar work does a lot for this song. Free sings and plays this like the champs they were and still remain; and the melody is catchy and even memorable! Boston's "More Than A Feeling" has a softer rock flavor to it; but those guitars come in big to rock on the musical interlude. Boston really knew how to turn out a rock ballad! In addition, The Allman Brothers Band does "Ramblin' Man" faultlessly, this country rocking tune never had them sounding better; the tune is also quite catchy and The Allman Brothers don't ever skip a beat--great!

"Sweet Home Alabama" by Lynyrd Skynyrd really brings back memories. This tune has always been one of my favorites from the 1970s; its response to a Neil Young song was quite strong and Lynyrd Skynyrd showed they had the chops to do anything they wanted when they did this number. "American Woman" has a fine 70's flavor to it and those guitars work wonders for this tune by The Guess Who. How's about that percussion? Moreover, Eric Clapton's masterpiece "Cocaine" still shines bright all these years later; Eric sings and plays this to perfection--and beyond! "Cocaine" is easily a major highlight of this album.

Rod Stewart scored a big hit with his "Maggie May;" and listen for Steelers Wheel doing their awesome "Stuck In The Middle With You.

For those expecting a disco-y 70's revival, you're in for a (great) surprise. This disc is guitar-driven rock at it's best. Classic from artists ranging from Clapton to Frampton, this is by far the best recording to play air-guitar with in a long time.

Ok...I'm 52 so this selection for me is a perfect balance of mellow and fast paced tempo of music I grew up with. This would be a CD that I would mix and put together myself...but hey, it's already done for ya!

If you're a fan of one of the greatest music decades of all time, then this CD is a "must" for your collection. Many of the great groups from the 70's (including Boston, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Doobie Brothers, Elton John, The Allman Brothers, and the list goes on and on) are present on this CD containing 18 tracks. Every song's a classic rock favorite that still graces the air waves today.

My only criticism is minor - if a Thin Lizzy song was going to be included, why pick "Whiskey in the Jar" over "The Boys Are Back in Town"? But if that's the worst thing that can be said about this collection, then you know it MUST be good!

A huge hit value - you can't go wrong with this CD!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

I enjoy listening to this album on my Nano-I-pod every day to school and on my way home from work. It so much better than what's playing on the airwaves. I'll be 36 next month and the music now a days isn't anything compariable to the 70's and early 80's. If you want to listen to real good music buy this album; also, the Dazed and Confused album is good as well.

A very good mix of rock and roll of the 70s in which reminds me of something in time from each song......some soft and romantic .....some ass kicking but then the good ole rock and roll which until this day has not died nor will it ever...they just keep on remixing the old good songs for our kids today...
