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 Your Life: 1974, Vol. 2 is a diverse collection which gets started with the Hues Corporation's "Rock the Boat" and includes classics like the Stylistics' "You Make Me Feel Brand New." Other artists represented include Billy Swan, Gladys Knight & the Pips, the Three Degrees, and Andy Kim.
