CD Reviews

Great Collection!
Erin RM | 05/19/2002

"If you're like me and don't own all of the original (albums!) tapes from these bands, then you'll love this CD. I often try to find classic rock compilations that have REALLY good songs on them, but most of the time I only like about 4 or 5 songs on any one collection. Not so with this CD! I snapped this one up because I totally enjoy every one of these songs. And several of these bands were one or two hit wonders, so why buy the band's whole tape in order to get one or two songs? Okay, so I'm not a die hard fan. Whether you have the original tapes or not, you'll like the variety and awesome guitar on this collection of classic 70's rock."
Good Stuff

"Not a bad collection of 70's stuff, every song on this CD will be pleasing to the ear. Boston, Santana, ELO and others are represented as well as many other groups. If you are into the music of the 70's then this will fullfill all your expectations."
And the nostalgia continues...

"The Best of 70s Supergroups is a budget priced CD that gives us an awesome fourteen tracks despite the low price. The quality of the sound is quite good.

Boston's "More Than A Feeling" opens with their great singing, electric guitars and percussion; the melody is infectiously catchy and the tune also rocks like anything! I like "More Than A Feeling" very much.

ELO's "Evil Woman" really rocks in a big way; and listen especially for Styx and their awesome, classic ballad entitled "Come sail Away." "Come Sail Away" works on many levels: the piano arrangement is quite elegant for a rockin' tune; and when the electric guitars and the singing of the main ballad comes in this number takes off like a jet! "Come Sail Away" is easily one of all time favorite rock songs ever.

"Taking Care Of Business" by Bachman Turner Overdrive is another classic hard rocking song from the 1970s; and I bet this'll make you want to jump up and start dancing wherever you are! Great guitars on "Taking Care Of Business," too. In addition, listen for Three Dog Night's soulful, rockin' ballad called "Never Been to Spain." Three Dog Night truly prove how great they were with "Never Been To Spain."

Grand Funk's "We're An American Band" is another major highlight of this album and I predict that you will enjoy this tune very much. They harmonize well and the guitars work perfectly for this number. There's also, of course, Lynyrd Skynyrd doing their incredible "Sweet Home Alabama." Lynyrd Skynyrd never sounded better and the lyrics to this song are captivating even today.

"So Into You" by Atlanta Rhythm Section sounds a bit syrupy compared to the rocking tunes on this album; but it is quite a strong number anyway. This number rocks soft and slow to make a romantic effect that really works well. The album ends with Kansas doing their major hit "Dust In The Wind." What an awesome ending for this album!

Overall, The Best Of 70s Supergroups is a great value with tons of hits on an inexpensive CD. Sure, it's not as complete as it could be--but for the price you can scarcely complain. I highly recommend this album for fans of those rockin' tunes from the `70s.
