AllMusic Review by

As with any other year, 1973 was a year of many hits, and it would be impossible to capture its essence on one CD -- especially if it's part of a budget-line series where no disc contains more than 15 songs. So, naturally, The Collection: The Hits of 1973 is a fairly random assortment of singles that were big during the year in question, featuring soft rock, hard rock, jazz, and soul hits from Argent ("God Gave Rock and Roll to You"), John Denver ("Rocky Mountain High"), Deodato ("Also Sprach Zarathustra"), David Essex ("Rock On"), and the O'Jays ("Love Train").
