AllMusic Review by

There is a Rod Stewart collection for every type of fan. Despite its lazy title, the 19-track Seventies Collection contains some of Stewart's finest country-tinged, pre-overproduced moments, including "Man of Constant Sorrow," "Mandolin Wind," "You Wear It Well," "Maggie Mae," and "Handbags & Gladrags." There are better, more comprehensive anthologies of the era out there like Reason to Believe: The Complete Mercury Studio Recordings, but for someone just looking for a little road trip fix, you would be hard-pressed to beat this little morsel. Listeners who came into the Stewart fold in reverse through his Great American Songbook albums won't know what hit them.
