Rhino's Have A Nice Day series takes you back to the days of black light posters, eight-track tapes, earth shoes, and bell-bottoms, gathering together the lone hits by those "one-or-two-shot" wonders of the '70s-with many tracks appearing on CD for the first time!

"Real quick, if it doesn't have "Hotel California" or "New Kid In Town" it doesn't represent 1977."
This CD brings back alot of happy memories.

"I have enjoyed this CD quite a bit its on the juke box at the bar across the street from my apartment complex. Which is how I was exposed to it. And it is a very poular selection on the juke, it has a great collection of songs and artists, perfect for anyone like me who grew up and went to school in the 70s,Hear it a few times and you'll have to get it."
This makes me feel like dancing!!! But only ten songs--

"Rhino Records pulls through again with a great, inexpensive selection of hits from 1977. Listening to the CD brought back fond memories for me of happier times when my life wasn't so complicated!
The selection of songs is really very good. I especially like the romantic "Undercover Angel" by Alan O'Day; Peter Frampton doing an awesome job with " I'm In You;" the joyous and infectious melody of "You Make Me Feel Like Dancing" by Leo Sayer; the rockin' "I'm Your Boogie Man" by KC & The Sunshine Band; and the playful disco classic "Car Wash" by Rose Royce. Sure, "Car Wash" is disco and so maybe it's not the best choice for a rock hits CD; but, then again, who cares? It's a fun song with a terrific beat and a well executed musical arrangement that practically begs your unconscious to jump up and start DANCING !!!
The quality of the music is great; but as always with this series that Rhino put out the liner notes are sparse. My main disappointment (and the reason I am giving this CD four stars instead of five stars) is that Rhino limited this CD series to ten songs per CD. Not eleven, not nine, not twelve--just ten and exactly ten. There's more than enough room left on the CD for at least one or two more songs--why couldn't a little more be added? Nevertheless, for the price it's a good buy.
Overall, the CD mainly stays to rock and roll but it swings a little bit into disco especially with the last track, "Car Wash." I highly recommend this CD for people who want to enjoy fond memories of years gone by and obviously this will be a delight for fans of '70s music. It's very affordable and that's always a nice plus! Enjoy this when you boogie! SMILES
