Review

Rhino's 2006 collection Billboard #1s: The '70s rounds up 30 hits that topped a variety of Billboard charts during the '70s. Even if some songs didn't necessarily reach number one on the pop charts, each one of these tunes was a major pop hit, or at least has remained in the public consciousness over the last 30 years. As such, there aren't many '70s surprises here -- it's heavy on big pop/rock songs, soft rock, and disco, including such standards as "What a Fool Believes," "Crocodile Rock," "You're So Vain," "Midnight Train to Georgia," "Lean on Me," "Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head," "Good Times," "Let's Stay Together," "Rich Girl," "Love Train," "Without You," and "Heart of Glass." Chances are, there are plenty of people who already have some of these tunes in their collections, but for those who don't and want all of them plus more in one handy collection, Billboard #1s: The '70s does the job just fine. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
