We use to have K-Tel, Sessions, Ronco, Pickwick, and the such that use to release various artists collections. But, in the CD format, it was Time-Life Music and Rhino Records that ruled in releasing various artists CD's. This is volume one of the 25 volumes of "Have a Nice Day: Super Hits of the 70's", that came out that reflects all the obscurities of the 1970's.

This is not your Elton John, Cat Stevens, Three Dog Night, Carpenters, John Denver, Carole King, Carly Simon, CCR, The Doors, Rod Stewart, Santana, Neil Diamond, or any of the such put together. This is your collection of all those one hit wonders that fell through the cracks that were heard amongst all them big names artists that were never heard again. That's the beauty of the whole "Have a Nice Day" series. I hope you'll read all my reviews. I'll tell you important things about most every song in the series.

"Good Morning Starshine" by Oliver should have started this collection off because I think it was one of the first songs that represented the sound of the multi-diversity of the upcoming seventies. But, this series opens with Sacramento's Spiral Starecase with their song "More Today Than Yesterday". When I first heard this song, I thought it was Stevie Wonder. But, in a way, I'm glad it's not. I appreciate this song for the one hit wonder that it is.

Listen to these fabulous introductions to the sound of AM radio once we had to consider that the days of The Beatles, Janis Joplin, and The Doors were over. For Volume One of this "Have a Nice Day" series, I don'tb think anything on this collection gets played on the radio anymore. Even on oldies radio. But yet, we all know and love these songs.

Volume 1 of the "Have a Nice Day" series showed great promise for a series that unfortunately only delivered in spotty fashion. However, this first disc is tremendous.
The selection of music is an overview of the many disparate styles that would form the sound of the seventies. Starting with the decades first mega-hit, "NaNa HeyHey Kiss Him Goodbye", these dozen tracks cover a little bit of everything. Yes, this track and a few others here were released in late 1969, but hit their stride in the winter and spring of 1970.
For middle-of-the-road pop, there is Vanity Fair's "Early in the Morning", the Spiral Staircase's "More Today than Yesterday" and Mark Lindsay's "Arizona." For those who prefer a softer sound, there is the Sandpiper's mellow and lovely "Come Saturday Morning" and The Flying Machine's "Smile a Little Smile for Me." Mountain gives a preview of the harder side of the decade with "Mississippi Queen" while Shocking Blue checks in with "Venus." There's even a bit of an oddity in Billy Joe Royal's only hit that wasn't squeaky clean, the transparently suggestive "Cherry Hill Park."
As with all of the discs in this series, the mastering is magnificent and all songs are originals (some in the set could have been better edited, but that's nitpicking). Many later volumes had difficulty coming up with twelve strong entries, but not Volume 1. This is a truly excellent value; twelve tracks, twelve great songs. Highly recommended.

In my opinion: Twenty Three out of the Twenty Five versions of this, Super Hits Of The 70s; Have A Nice Day, series have their ups and downs and some are better than others and there are several one and two hit wonders on them but the bottom line is this.... Volume One IS Number One and Volume Two is right along beside it. In otherwords; if both volumes were playing against each other in a ballgame the game would most definitely end in a tie. From start to finish those two are solid and the quality of the music is nothing less than fabulous.

This Vol. One starts out with Spiral Staircase's, More Today Than Yesterday, and it most definitely will have you singing along with it.

The second song is, Baby It's You, from the excellent band Smith. Gayle McCormick's bluesy vocals sound fantastic on this tune, which was also a good song for The Beatles on their American LP called The Early Beatles from 1965 plus it was a huge hit for The Shirelles.

The third song is a very beautiful tune which made it to the top five in November 1969 and will melt your heart being, Smile A Little Smile For Me, by The Flying Machine. Folks;I think I remember a slightly different version of this song by The Flying Machine then what is on this disc. Correct me if I am wrong.

The fourth song is by the great Billy Joe Royal called, Cherry Hill Park. Billy Joe Royal a one or two hit wonder?.....No Way! .The fifth song is Steams immortal, Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye. This gem is an Anthem and reached # one in December 1969 and most all of us have sung it at one time or another. Especially at a ballgame. Bannarama had a hit with this song in the 80s.

The sixth song is, Venus, by The Shocking Blue which was a huge smash for this band.
