AllMusic Review by

Bellevue's Saturday Night Party series, like other releases from the label, features only a handful of original recordings per volume. Poorly recorded live versions and studio re-recordings are far more common. The label specifies which selections are live, but it does not bother to note which ones are inferior studio remakes. That alone is a case for ignoring the whole series. Among the many reasons to avoid Saturday Night Party: '70s Party are substandard versions of Peter Frampton's "All I Wanna Be," Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On," the Sweet's "Ballroom Blitz" (credited to the band's Brian Connolly), and Mungo Jerry's "In the Summertime."
