Sounds of the Seventies: 1971 -- Take Two is another fine entry in a fine series from Time Life that picks up where Sounds of the Seventies: 1971 leaves off. It collects 21 songs that made the year what it was, while drawing from a wide range of styles and genres. It provides both a fine introduction to the year's music and a highly entertaining exercise in nostalgia, and either way it is a blast. Like the first disc from 1971, it is packed from beginning to end with classics ranging from the Staple Singers' "Respect Yourself" to Emerson, Lake & Palmer's "Lucky Man." The two Sounds of the Seventies: 1971 CDs paint a vibrant picture of the year and are near essential listening for '70s music fans.
