The glass might be half full and not half emptywith this one

"Of the two volumes in the "Rockin' 70's" series I have checked out to date Volume 1 is the better of the pair. You will find a lot of the same artists on both volumes, with Three Dog Night ("Joy to the World"), Lynyrd Skynyrd ("Sweet Home Alabama"), and the Four Tops ("Ain't No Woman (Like the One I've Got)"). But the edge goes to this one because it has more hits from the Seventies that you might want to add to your music collection such as Joe Walsh's "Rocky Mountain Way," Brian Hyland's "Gypsy Woman," and Dobie Gray's "Drift Away." With songs by Jerry Jeff Walker, Stephen Bishop, and Poco the album is geared more towards the decade and less towards holdovers from the Sixties (i.e., the Grass Roots). Once you get past Three Dog Night and Lynyrd Skynner you could well find the requisite five tracks, especially if you graduated high school in the last half of the decade. There is also more of an emphasis on rock and pop on this one without a touch of the disco madness,"
