This might have been one trip into the past that Rhino Records should have thought about very hard before making. Oh, there are two really good moments here, Cliff Richard's sole thrust at U.S. success, "Devil Woman," and the Sanford/Townsend Band's upbeat, catchy "Smoke From a Distant Fire," but otherwise a lot of this CD is given over to records that -- unless you had a lot of good times listening to the radio while driving during the late Ford or early Carter administrations -- it's difficult to imagine anyone wanting to own this terribly much: Rick Dees' brain-damaged dance hit "Disco Duck," which did everyone the service of hammering a nail in the coffin of the disco boom in the course of becoming one of the biggest selling singles of 1976; "Get Closer," which was among the weakest of Seals & Crofts' hits, despite the presence of Carolyn Willis of Honey Cone and Bob B. Soxx & the Blue Jeans fame; the rural melodrama (seemingly by way of Erskine Caldwell) "Judy Mae" by Boomer Castleman (aka Owen Clarke of the Lewis & Clarke Expedition); Dean Friedman's adenoidal tale of Garden State romance, "Ariel" (which, if not for its break, would be uncomfortably similar to the Hollies' "Carrie-Anne"); Engelbert Humperdinck's "After the Loving"; and "Living Next Door to Alice" by Smokie. It's nice to hear this stuff mastered to Rhino's usual high standard, though how nice it is to hear some of this stuff itself is problematic. Peter McCann's "Do You Wanna Make Love" and Hot's "Angel in Your Arms" fill out the middle ground between the peaks and valleys of this disc, and the notes are unusually humorous, even for this series.
