3.0 out of 5 stars + 1/2 stars...More Big Hits Than the Previous Volumes February 28, 2004
Format:Audio CD
What Rhino's Have a Nice Day series does, is put together a collection not of the biggest hits by the biggest stars, but rather an eclectic collection of big (and not so big) hits by artists who for the most part had very brief careers on the charts. And with volume 10 (which focuses mostly on 1973), they continue to do a very good job.
A noticeable difference with this volume, however, is how many of these were in fact huge hits. All but two of them cracked the Top 10. The first that did not is folk artist Loudon Wainwright's tribute to road kill, "Dead Skunk." [Though this was his lone hit, he continues to record to this day and has a legion of rabid fans--myself included. (Check out my review of his latest SO DAMN HAPPY.)] The other answers the question "What did Looking Glass do to follow up with their No. 1 hit "Brandy (You're a Fine Girl)?" The answer is their No. 33 (and last) hit "Jimmy Loves Mary-Anne."
Sometimes it's better to have been just a one-hit wonder. Albert Hammond had a million-seller with "It Never Rains in Southern California," and Stealers Wheel (which included Gerry Rafferty) hit the Top 10 with the infectious "Stuck in the Middle With You." But does anyone remember either of their follow-up hits? [Answer: It was "I'm a Train" (No. 31) and "Star" (No. 29 ) respectively. ("Star" shows up on vol. 12.)]
A couple of the one-hit wonders pulled off the ultimate by taking their only charting single all the way to No. 1. Vicki "Mama's Family" Lawrence did it with "The Night That the Lights Went Out In Georgia," as did Stories' song of interracial love "Brother Louie.

5.0 out of 5 stars The SuperStar of the SuperHits series! July 6, 2000
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Volume 10 of the "Have a Nice Day" series stands head and shoulders above its compatriots and is the centerpiece of the 25 volume set.
There are a number of unusual, difficult to find tracks on this disc, highlighted by the powerful, socially conscious "Brother Louie" by Stories and Stealers Wheel's smash hit "Stuck in the Middle With You." Other strong entries are "It Never Rains in California", "Cover of the Rolling Stone", "Wildflower", and the marvelous "Drift Away." "Jimmy Loves Mary-Ann" and "Dead Skunk" are the stinkers of this collection (sorry, couldn't resist that) and they're not all that bad.
If you can only take one volume from this series, Volume 10 is the one. It provides an excellent microcosm of the music of the 70s; one wonderful musical memory after the other. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good old Rock and Roll July 29, 2003
Format:Audio CD
It is hard to find a bad CD in this anthology series, if you are a true fan of 70's Rock and Roll. The diversity of selections in the series is extraordinary. This volume has a number of songs that make you want to sing your heart out along with the group. The best in this category are "Cover of the Rolling Stone" by one of my favorite groups, Dr Hook, "Drift Away" by Dobie Gray, and "Oh Babe, What Would You Say?" by Hurricane Smith. But almost all the songs in this volume have their good points and I would rate 9 of them in the "I want" category. This CD is well worth the price as are most of the other CD's in this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Despite the cheese-YOU GOTTA LOVE IT!! May 25, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I just love every one of the Have A Nice Day series. These are great tunes (love em or hate em) that are hard to find on CD as well as any other format. Hurricane Smith's "Oh Babe, What would you Say" is worth the price of the entire CD on Vol. 10. Not to mention great songs like "Stuck In The Middle With You" by Stealers Wheel and "Cover Of The Rolling Stone" by Dr. Hook. Love these songs or hate them they sure tug on the heartstrings and bring back memories. I almost feel like I'm a kid again back in the 70s listening to my old AM radio!

Super Hits of the '70s: Have a Nice Day, Volume 10 gives us twelve big hits from the 1970s. The sound quality is perfect and the diversity of songs means that many people will find tunes to like on this album. When you listen to this album it should bring backs loads of memories if you were young and listening to the radio in the `70s.

Albert Hammond's "It Never Rains In Southern California" is a meaningful ballad which can pull on your heartstrings; life isn't always easy. Just one listen to this song and you'll know why it's remembered as a classic hit from the `70s. In addition, I think that the very brightest star on the album comes rather early; listen for Hurricane Smith's stunning love ballad "Oh, Babe, What Would You Say?" Hurricane Smith sings this so sweetly and the strings, horns and other instruments make a powerful arrangement. Hurricane Smith delivers this ballad with heart and soul. If you like romantic and yet somewhat innocent ballads about true love you are bound to be thrilled with Hurricane Smith's "Oh, Babe, What Would You Say?"

Dr. Hook And The Medicine Show deliver a strong "The Cover Of 'Rolling Stone';" this country rock style ballad is very nicely done. Vicki Lawrence's haunting "The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia" strikes me as one of the better 1970s rock ballads and the country twist enhances the melody.

Stealers Wheel's "Stuck In The Middle With You" takes the blending of country and rock even further to make a smash hit straight out of the `70s; and "Brother Louie" is an excellent, funky tune that really tells it like it is about race relations. "Brother Louie" is an excellent tune!

As usual with this series, I am disappointed that the CDs in this series have only twelve songs.
