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: 1978, Vol. 1 documents the sweet sounds of the end of the '70s including the Jefferson Starship's "Count on Me" and Kenny Loggins' "Whenever I Call You Friend." The Kinks are also represented with "Rock & Roll Fantasy." Other icons of the '70s are also featured, including Eddie Money, Boston, and E.L.O.
