AllMusic Review by

1970 Rock: Top 40 Chartbusters is a 12-song collection of '70s rock and soul staples drawn from the archives of MCA. It is too brief to be much more than a small piece of the '70s puzzle, but it does include many great songs like Eddie Holman's "Hey There Lonely Girl," the Grass Roots' "Temptation Eyes," and Shocking Blue's "Venus." Extra points are added for the inclusion of B.B. King's "The Thrill Is Gone," a tune that doesn't usually show up on collections like this.
