AllMusic Review by

Entertainment Weekly's Greatest Hits 1978 continues the magazine's year-by-year retrospective of popular music with a collection of pop, soul, disco, and rock favorites. This volume includes Barry Manilow's "Copacabana (At the Copa)," Chic's "Le Freak," Eddie Money's "Baby Hold On," and Nick Gilder's "Hot Child in the City." Taste of Honey's "Boogie Oogie Oogie" and Patti Smith's "Because the Night" are two of the other highlights of this compilation; though it's not comprehensive, it is a solid, affordable overview of late-'70s musical trends.
