Super Hits of the 70s: Have a Nice Day is a series of music compilations containing chiefly one-hit wonders and lesser-known pop and rock music songs from the 1970s. The first fifteen volumes were released on cassette and (with bonus tracks) on CD, in 1990 by Rhino Records, covering the years 1969–1976. Compiled by Gary Stewart, David McLees, and Bill Inglot, each CD comes with an eight-page booklet which includes five pages of liner notes by Paul Grein.
Sounds of the Seventies was a 38-volume series issued by Time-Life during the late 1980s and early-to-mid 1990s, spotlighting pop music of the 1970s.
For many the ‘70s are the lost decade: a cultural Atlantis sandwiched between the hippie radicalism of the ‘60s and the incipient greed of the ‘80s. Not just an aesthetic wasteland concocted from polyester and shag carpeting, the ‘70s were a period when the values of the ‘60s-individual liberty, anti-elitism and respect for gender and racial differences became grounded in politics- where “doing my own thing” metamorphosed into “doing the right thing”, after national pride curdled amid political crisis. Yet despite a series of events that branded the ‘70s with an angry scar, people struggled to hold onto their optimism and innocence, however ironic, as depicted in those ubiquitous “Have a Nice Day” smiley faces. That sense of innocence unhinging was reflected in some of the song that topped the charts during those years.
This is a phenomenal collection of blues put out by the UK label Charly. Just take a look at the list of volumes in this series and you will have to agree that this is an exceptional set of Blues.

Time Life's AM Gold '70s series provides a highly enjoyable history lesson. Each year is represented by songs drawn from a wide range of sources, features all very big hits all the time and plays like an hour of true golden oldies radio. As usual with the series, you'll get a pretty good idea of what was going on in the charts from this disc and would be hard-pressed to find a better single-disc collection of hits from the year.
