AllMusic Review by

This generous 20-track collection transports one back to 1970, and it's obvious the pop charts were surprisingly varied (as they usually always are, actually, no matter what the year) and full of little gems. Here we have the Beach Boys' California-meets-Alabama version of "Cotton Fields," Dave Edmunds' bayou-perfect "I Hear You Knocking," and the Band's woozy jug band romp through "Rag Mama Rag," to name just a few of the delights included in this fun set that seems perfect for a long drive down memory lane on a bright summer's day.
