"There is not one terrible song in this collection of pop standards from 1971. Jerry Reed's "When You're Hot, You're Hot", Lobo's "Me And You And A Dog Named Boo", Hamilton, Joe Frank and Reynolds "Don't Pull Your Love" and the Fortunes "Here Comes That Rainy Day Feeling Again" are the best of the bunch. Richie Havens even has a cover of the Beatles' "Here Comes The Sun". Every fan of early '70's music can pick their favorites here. One question: Why was Rhino reluctant to include Three Dog Night's "Joy To The World" here? that is perhaps the only downside of this CD. Good pop music is here, nonetheless. A good buy."
Fine look back at what we really listened to...

"Super Hits of the '70s: Have a Nice Day, Vol. 5 gives us a number of solid hits from the rock and roll `70s era and the sound quality is excellent. The diversity of the artists on this CD impresses me and the artwork is as good as it always is in this CD series.
"Chick-A-Boom (Don't Ya Jes' Love It)" is a spicy little tune that starts the CD off with a huge burst of energy; Daddy Dewdrop does this one right! They sound great and the rhythm and beat are excellent. This song celebrates romance between men and women; and it works on many levels. I predict that you will enjoy ""Chick-A-Boom (Don't Ya Jes' Love It)" very much!
Lobo does their "Me And You And A Dog Named Boo." This song gives us a somewhat softer rock number but they harmonize well; and the musical arrangement uses the strings to great advantage. I like the way Lobo sings and plays this tune. Richie Havens's "Here Comes Then Sun" is an excellent cover of that Beatles tune with some awesome guitar that blows me away every time I hear this song! Ritchie Havens sings this ballad perfectly; The Beatles must have been proud!
Murray Head performs "Superstar" from Jesus Christ Superstar; and his female backup vocalists couldn't sound any better! Jerry Reed's "When You're Hot, You're Hot" is really cool; this number will certainly bring back fond memories from those `70s years. I really like the playful and well done "When You're Hot, You're Hot."
There's also "Don't Pull Your Love" which they sing wonderfully; and "Indian Reservation (The Lament Of The Cherokee Reservation Indian)" by The Raiders always impressed me with its beat. The justifiable bitterness of the Native American is well displayed in the lyrics of this powerful song.
The Fortunes succeed big with their hit entitled "Here Come That Rainy Day Feeling Again;" this tune is well orchestrated and sung. Listen also for Tommy James's "Draggin' The Line;" the electric guitars on this ballad make it all the better as they sing this with lots of heart and soul. The Mike Curb Congregation ends the CD with their "Burning Bridges;" this is not the strongest tune on this album but it actually does make a good ending number for the CD.
Overall, Super Hits of the '70s: Have a Nice Day, Vol. 5 is a solid entry in this multiple CD series of great tunes from the 1970s. I highly recommend this album for fans of `70s rock.
Not a Bad CD

"Some odd choices round out this volume. Big hits like "Superstar" by Murray Head and "Indian Reservation" by The Raiders are joined by some "hits" that some devout collectors may not even remember--"Games" by Redeye, "Get It On" by Chase, and "Burning Bridges" by Mike Curb Congregation. More actual hits should have appeared, but all in all, the CD is okay. All original versions."
