MUSIC REVIEW OF THE DAY: '70'S CLASSIC HITS ICON
Anybody that lived through the '70's knows that there's no universe where Rupert Holmes' offensive Pina Colada Song belongs on the same compilation as the sublime Go All The Way by The Raspberries. So I have to think this is for those who have only experienced the '70's through current pop culture and nostalgic movies.
It's a 50-50 mix of good and blah, but that's the '70's I suppose. For each gem such as Dobie Gray's Drift Away, the compilers counter with dregs like Come Sail Away by Styx. There's no theme or rhyme or reason; BTO and You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet, Andy Kim's Rock Me Gently, Heart's Magic Man. All classics? Nope. There must have been a sale on at a certain Music Publisher's Clearing House.
