Sony Special Products' Rockin' 70s is a collection of ten pop/rock and album rock hits culled from the Columbia and Epic vaults. Really, the only things the featured songs have in common is their shared label and decade, but that turns out to be enough for an entertaining compilation. After all, it's hard to go wrong with a budget-line disc that contains "Black Magic Woman," "I Want You to Want Me," "Frankenstein," "Long Cool Woman (In a Black Dress)," "I Can Help," "More Than a Feeling," "(Don't Fear) the Reaper," "Come and Get Your Love," "Cruel to Be Kind" and "Baby Hold On." That lineup ensures that any budget-minded fan of '70s pop will likely go home fairly happy. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
