“Ultimate Seventies - The Classics" brings you 100 songs from that mighty decade, when the charts were packed with amazing artists and genres vying with each other for your attention. It was peak time for singer-songwriters, with Van Morrison, Chris Rea and Gerry Rafferty all represented here. Disco was in its heyday, and you can hear Chic, Candi Staton and Sister Sledge on this 5CD set. If it's classic soul you're after, how about Aretha Franklin, Curtis Mayfield or George Benson? There's glam rock, from Wizzard, The Sweet and Mud; punk rock rears its head with The Ramones, The Stranglers and Sham 69; the reggae party is started by Dave & Ansell Collins, John Holt and Althea & Donna; and there's still time to sample mellower sounds from Bread, Daryl Hall & John Oates, and The Doobie Brothers From Young Hearts Run Free to Life's Been Good, "Ultimate Seventies - The Classics" is a hit-packed run through an incredible decade of music.
