AllMusic Review by

Get Ready, Here Come the '70s features 57 pop/rock hits of the era, by the original artists, encompassing bubblegum, country-rock, singer/songwriter, glam, disco, and soul. While it doesn't contain as many one-hit wonders as Rhino's massive Have a Nice Decade: The 70s Pop Culture Box, or the additional 20 tracks found on Barry Williams Presents: 70s Music Explosion, this three-disc set zooms in on immediately recognizable chart-toppers for anyone who grew up in that decade or is a fan of pop music in general. Unfortunately, these same songs have already been reissued ad nauseam for the past decade. Yes, Shout Factory does the usual admirable job with packaging, liner notes, and remastering, but you have to wonder if yet another box set of this type was really necessary. Probably not.
