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 documentations for the years they are covering. Rock On: 1978 includes Nick Gilder's "Hot Child in the City," Michael Johnson's "Bluer Than Blue," Dr. Hook's "Sharing the Night Together," Natalie Cole's "Our Love," A Taste of Honey's "Boogie Oogie Oogie," and Bob Welch's "Ebony Eyes."
