"It's unfair to criticise this compilation CD for it's lack of content because it's available at such a low-price. Still, only boasting *nine* tracks makes you wonder if Priority Records actually took this album seriously. It's wrong to label this a 'rock' collection too as there's a lot of different musical styles to be found on "The Best Of 70s Rock Chart Toppers". No-one could ever class 10CC, Bonnie Tyler, Gary Glitter and Foreigner as being the 'same'. Even so, this is a worthwhile purchase, and despite my minor criticisms, this CD comes recommended."Hot Blooded" by Foreigner is a good opener, but not one of my favourite tracks by that band. "The Things We Do For Love" by Britain's 10CC is more pop than rock - and the same can be said for E.L.O's, "Don't Bring Me Down". Both are great songs, but should you ever get the chance to hear any of their other songs, you'll agree both bands aren't exactly 'rock'. Robert Palmers, "Bad Case Of Lovin' You" - a track that is sometimes just called "Doctor Doctor" is a perfect example of what soft rock would transform into the following decade. "Rich Girl" by those perennial soft-rockers, Hall & Oates, and Toto's, "Hold The Line" are two other main-stays on 'easy listening' radio stations and should be familiar to you. Bonnie Tyler - the petite Welsh rocker with the powerful voice - contributes to this CD with her "It's A Heartache". This is one example of a singer who was better *later* in her career. "Radar Love", from the Dutch(?) band, Golden Earring, follows. This is nothing special, making it the weakest track on the CD. The album concludes with Gary Glitter's 70s classic, "Rock N Roll Part 2".There's a few good tracks on here that makes this CD worthwhile, and the low-price makes it worth purchasing. So long as you don't expect anything *special*, "The Best 70s Rock Chart Toppers" will be a welcome addition to your CD collection.Jon."
