AllMusic Review by

Time-Life's AM Gold series takes a wide-ranging look at the music that shaped the '70s, sticking mainly to the biggest hits of each year and delivering an hour-plus of first-rate oldies radio programming. Each disc is heavy with classic tracks from huge artists but also finds space for one-offs from lesser-known groups and singers. AM Gold: 1970 is as scattered across the musical spectrum as any other entry, and its highlights include the Partridge Family's "I Think I Love You," Brian Hyland's "Gypsy Woman," Mungo Jerry's "In the Summertime," Clarence Carter's "Patches," and Dawn's "Candida." Another well-chosen, evenly paced, and highly entertaining collection from the fine folks at Time-Life, seek it out at a secondhand store near you today.
