Product is fantastic but.... Buy only from a known and trusted seller, or make sure seller comments include "as pictured/described". At least one seller claimming new product (with no disclaimers) is delivering a cheaper, discontinued CD stack: no box or bonus and MSRP $30.00 less. That is a different product with a different UPC, different title (not "box set"), different picture and description. After a month of lies, Amazon took over and is investigating seller.

Just received the "Box Set" purchased as a gift only problem is that instead of being in the cool box as pictured it was five CD jewel cases taped together with no box, not the most impressive thing for a gift. Just a caution if you want what is pictured that is not what you will receive. Otherwise, the CD's are as expected.

I bought this so called BOX SET as a christmas gift. Didn't get the thing til after new years, and to add insult to injury they came as lose CD's not in the box pictured. It made a crumby looking gift since I printed out a picture of the box and gave it because of the late delivery. I'll think twice before I order another so called BOX SET from amazon. Just for the hell of it, look up the ton of emails I sent you guys about the problems I had with this order. That will explain a lot. We love the music, the three stars is for amazon!

Great Collection, but the pictures of the product supposedly by the seller dont match the product I bought and got in the mail. I just got 5 cases wrapped together in a cardboard mailing box. I did not get the case that the pictures by the seller shows. There was also a bonus CD that was from 1976 and instead I got a CD of one hit wonders from the 70's. They are still all good music, they just dont match what the description was.

This review is about the boxed collection "70's Music Explosion" from Time-Life. I realize that taste in music is very subjective, but this is the BEST 70's pop collection I have come across. It focuses heavily on singers and groups that may have had only one or two hits back in the 70s. BUT they were memorable hits. Even though the final volume of this set is called "One Hit Wonders," there are plenty of top notch one hit wonders throughout Music Explosion. Having said that, there are also plenty of well established bands and singers on these disks too. For sheer nostalgia value, you can't beat it. All of these tunes played on the AM radio of my car back in the day. AND sound quality of the Time-Life set is GREAT! But maybe the best thing about this set is that most of the music it contains has not been released together anywhere else, and some of it hasn't been released since it first played on the radio. A few of the gems in Music Explosion include: "Sky High" from Jigsaw, "Moonlight Feels Right" from Starbuck (complete with the only marimba solo in recent pop memory), show themes from TV Sitcoms Happy Days and Welcome Back Kotter, tons of great ballads like "I'd Really Love To See You Tonight" from England Dan and John Ford Coley, and other hits that were all over 70s radio like "Billy Don't be a Hero" from Bo Donaldson and The Heywoods, or how about "Magic" from Pilot? I'm just scratching the surface. Check out the full listing of the songs, and see for yourself. This is the best record money I have spent in a long while.

Just got my copy of "70's Music explosion" and it was exactly what I expected. Nowadays if you can buy something online and get exactly what you expected, you're doing very well. Please don't get me wrong I hate Time-Life's guts. Their politics in the past dealing with various parts of the broadcast and satellite industries have been atrocious. Another reason to hate them is the prices they charge for these CD collections. $15.00 a CD for mostly public domain music? You gotta be kidding! But here's the catch: Of all the nearly 200 selections in this collection there was only one or two filler songs and maybe even they weren't because I just didn't know them. Second catch: Absolutely every selection was trancribed (Remastered) as well as possible from the original master tape. What are you gonna do? Sometimes you have to give the Devil his due.
