Liner Note Author: Al Fichera.
Great Ladies of Rock & Roll The '70s offers 25 tracks of the best female-fronted pop music during a decade when soul was gradually giving way to disco. Any compiler would be hard-pressed to outdo the selection here, which includes a parade of top tunes: Jean Knight's "Mr. Big Stuff," LaBelle's "Lady Marmalade," Gladys Knight & the Pips' "Midnight Train to Georgia," Blondie's "Heart of Glass," Minnie Riperton's "Lovin' You," and more (and yes, they are the original recordings). As often happens, Collectables' focus on sound quality isn't top-rate, but for the low price this one is usually offered for, it's difficult to complain too much. ~ John Bush
