The Seventies Generation series is made up of bargain basement-quality discs that look like decent ten-song collections of the pop hits of the day, focusing mostly on the AM dial. The brevity of the discs is a problem, but the real thing that makes these discs so lackluster is that each of the songs is a re-recording, not the original version.
Most of the songs are done by the original artist who actually had the hit but their voices are older and the music is generally much, much worse. At best a track will sound like a decent wedding band, at worst it will sound like Dale from Marketing crooning drunkenly on karaoke night.
This double-disc set combines two discs' worth of really bad versions of good songs from and by good artists like Mott the HoopleDont Pull Your Love - Various - The Seventies Generation 1971 Blues ImageRare Earththe Grass RootsChicago and Badfinger. Not only do these remakes tarnish the images of the artists who participate, it foists some inept and patently fake music on casual fans of the '70s who might not know any better.
