A value-priced collection of compilations which feature the music of the '50s through the '80s, Definitive Records' A Year in Your Life series presents a fun and eclectic mix of the sounds that defined the babyhood of the baby boomers through the adulthood of the "me" generation. Ranging across a variety of pop and R&B influenced styles, each CD in the series highlights the music of a single year. Historical tidbits and a musical trivia quiz are also included in the liner notes. A Year in the Life: 1975, Vol. 2 highlights the energetic rock, funk, disco, and soul sounds that emerged from the '70s, most notably with Labelle's "Lady Marmelade," Grand Funk Railroad's "Bad Time," and Gloria Gaynor's "Never Can Say Goodbye." Other notable artists featured on this volume of the series include Blood, Sweat & Tears, Natalie Cole, 10CC, and the O'Jays.
