From the first track I was brought back to a more innocent time before computers, DVD players and satellite dishes.  Our main source of entertainment in the 70's was found in the music that we listened to, it defined our generation. This CD is a wonderful reflection of that very memorable decade.  The album's first track is The Hollies performing "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother" followed by Sly and the Family Stone's funky hit "Thank You (Falettimme Be Mice Elf Agin)".  Edison Lighthouse continues the groove with "Love Grows (Where My Rosemary Goes)".  The 30 tracks o­n this double CD include several acclaimed musicians and their songs such as: Chicago ("25 Or 6 To 4"), The Stampeders ("Sweet City Woman"), Don Mclean (American Pie), Al Green ("Let's Stay Together"), Grand Funk Railroad ("The Loco-Motion"), Harry Chapin ("Cats in the Cradle"), Linda Rondstandt (When Will I Be Loved"), Pilot ("Magic").  The second CD starts with David Bowie ("Fame"), Starland Vocal Band ("Afternoon Delight"), Steve Miller ("Rock 'N Me"), Peter Frampton ("I'm in You"), E.L.O. ("Turn to Stone"), Nick Gilder ("Hot Child in the City"), Bob Welsh ("Ebony Eyes"), Meatloaf ("Two out of Three Ain't Bad"), Blondie ("Heart of Glass"), Supertramp ("The Logical Song"), The Knack ("My Sharona"), and everybody's favorite slow schlock dance number Styx's "Babe".  After mentioning several of the songs o­n this double CD I am starting to run out of space; so if you are interested in traveling back in time to the 1970's, your voyage will be incomplete without this compilation.
