A value-priced collection of compilations that 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. 1979, Vol. 2 documents the end of the disco era and features contributions from a range of artists across the musical spectrum. Songs from the Pointer Sisters, the Commodores, and Robert John are highlights, and McFadden & Whitehead's "Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now" is another special treat.
