"Rock On's 1976 collection is a nice combination of styles from the era. You get some disco with Vicki Sue Robinson's "Turn The Beat Around", white boy funk with Wild Cherry's ubiquitous "Play That Funky Music", blue-eyed Philly soul from Hall & Oates with their first big hit, the beautiful "Sara Smile", r&b from Earth, Wind & Fire on the smooth "Can't Hide Love" and California soft rock from England Dan & John Ford Coley on "I'd Really Love To See You Tonight". War's "Summer" perfectly encapsules the feeling a lazy summer day with a great Latin flavored groove. Martin Balin gives one of his best vocal performances on Jefferson Starship's sweet "With Your Love" and future Starship lead singer Mickey Thomas sings lead on Elvin Bishop's "Fooled Around & Fell In Love". There are some clunkers like the saccharine "Afternoon Delight" by The Starland Vocal Band and the ridiculously awful "Money Honey" from The Bay City Rollers."
