AllMusic Review by

Although the pop music of the 1970s is often unfairly maligned, this four-disc set shows that the decade brought, if nothing else, tremendous variety to the pop charts. Highlights, although every track was a hit, include the O'Jays' "Love Train," Bill Withers' "Lean on Me," Billy Paul's "Me and Mrs. Jones," and Lou Reed's "Walk on the Wild Side," among many others.
