Billboard Hits: 1977 presents the year's top ten singles, a good portion of which are disco and soul classics like Heatwave's "Boogie Nights," KC & the Sunshine Band's "I'm Your Boogie Man," Rose Royce's "Car Wash," Thelma Houston's "Don't Leave Me This Way," and Marvin Gaye's "Got to Give It Up." Meanwhile, Hall & Oates' "Rich Girl," Peter Frampton's "I'm in You," Climax Blues Band's "Couldn't Get It Right," and Alan O'Day's "Undercover Angel" represent 1977's favorite pop hits. Overall, Billboard Hits: 1977 is an enjoyable collection that splits the difference between disco and soft rock, two of the era's biggest musical crazes.
