AllMusic Review by

Each volume of Excelsior's Rock On series provides an extremely arbitrary snapshot of the year that's being covered. Only 12 songs are on each disc, meaning that a good amount of space goes to waste, and there's little in the way of stylistic focus. Needless to say, these hastily patched-together budget-line discs shouldn't be considered suitable documentation for the years they are covering. Rock On: 1971 includes B.J. Thomas' "No Love at All," Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds' "Don't Pull Your Love," Tommy James' "Draggin' the Line," Brewer & Shipley's "One Toke Over the Line," the Chi-Lites' "Have You Seen Her?," and Tommy Roe's "Stagger Lee."
