Suddenly '70s Review

by Heather Phares

Suddenly '70s delivers 18 of the decade's biggest hits, concentrating on pop and disco singles like the Raspberries' "Go All the Way," Three Dog Night's "Joy to the World," Wild Cherry's "Play That Funky Music," and Hues Corporation's "Rock the Boat." Though most of the collection is comprised of '70s standards like Looking Glass' "Brandy (You're a Fine Girl)," the Bay City Rollers' "Saturday Night," and Stealers Wheel's "Stuck in the Middle With You," slightly more obscure tracks such as Neil Sedaka's "Bad Blood" and B.W. Stevenson's "My Maria" give the album a little variety. John Sebastian's "Welcome Back," John Travolta's "Let Her In," and Dawn's "Knock Three Times" are among the other highlights of this collection, which doesn't offer many surprises but does a decent job of gathering some of the most memorable songs of the '70s.
