"There are lots of great songs on this CD. The best songs on here include Pilot-January (another great pop-rock song, nearly as good as their previous hit Magic), Hello-New York Groove (later covered by Ace Frehley, both versions are similar sounding and equally good), Betty Wright-Where Is the Love (a great furiously paced disco song that surprisingly was not a US pop hit), Suzi Quatro-Your Mama Won't Like Me (Suzi rules, and if you don't believe me, ask Joan Jett and Lita Ford, both of whom were clearly inspired by Suzi, especially Jett), Billie Jo Spears-Blanket on the Ground (which was a big US country hit but surprisingly not a big US pop hit), and of course KC & the Sunshine Band-That's the Way (I Like It).
The US chart hits here include Glen Campbell-Rhinestone Cowboy, KC & the Sunshine Band-That's the Way (I Like It), Maxine Nightingale-Right Back Where We Started From (which was a hit in 1976), Hot Chocolate-You Sexy Thing (also a hit in 1976), Helen Reddy-Angie Baby (which was a hit in 1974), and Minnie Riperton-Lovin' You (I'm surprised Mariah Carey hasn't covered this song yet, it's tailor made for her).
Mud seemed to have shifted gears at this point from glam to rock & roll revivalists with tunes like The Secrets That You Keep and Oh Boy.
This CD gets 4.5 stars. It would have have merited 5 but gets subtracted 1/2 a star due to Yin & Yan-If and George McCrae-It's Been So long. Yin & Yan-If is a spoof of Telly Savalas-If, which was a Bread cover he did that was a # 1 UK hit. I realize it's a spoof song, but it's so lame, it make the Telly Savalas song seem like a classic, which it ain't!
The George McCrae song sounds like a redone 90's version and not the original. I can't confirm this since I've never actually heard the original version, but I swear it can't possibly be the original.
FYI-Fancy Pants is by Kenny and Pandora's Box is by Procol Harum."
