K-Tel's The '70s looks like a pretty good, if a bit brief, collection of AM radio pop, soft rock, and funky soul from hitmakers like Tyrone Davis ("Turn Back the Hands of Time"), Lobo ("Me and You and a Dog Named Boo"), and B.J. Thomas ("Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head"). The only problem is that with the exception of Bobby Sherman's "Jule, Do Ya Love Me," all the songs are re-recorded, inferior versions of the original hits, a fact you'd need to check the small print on the back to know about ahead of time.
