CATALOGUE NUMBER CDYBENOW74

CD1 sets the tone with electrifying Rock and Glam hits, opening with Queen's timeless anthem

"Seven Seas Of Rhye" and Elton John's powerful "The Bitch Is Back." The album keeps the energy

high with tracks from Suzi Quatro, Mud, Slade, and Mott The Hoople. Alice Cooper's "Teenage

Lament '74" and Status Quo's "Break The Rules" add a touch of Rock 'N' Roll edge, while huge Pop

hits from David Essex, Alvin Stardust, Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel, and Bay City Rollers lead toward

hit cover versions from Gary Shearston and Bryan Ferry to round off the first CD.

CD2 is a soulful journey through the smooth sounds of the year. The Love Unlimited Orchestra's

sensual "Love's Theme" sets the mood, followed by a mix of deep grooves from MFSB, Harold Melvin

& The Blue Notes, and The Tymes. Duets from Diana Ross & Marvin Gaye and Dionne Warwick & The

Spinners offer great collaborations. Dance-floor hits from KC & The Sunshine Band, Commodores,

and Roberta Flack keep the groove alive, and re-released hits from R. Dean Taylor and Robert Knight

are celebrated, while Barry White's passionate "Never, Never Gonna Give Ya Up" seals the disc with

his rich vocals.

CD3 closes out the collection with an eclectic mix of styles, from Elton John's interpretation of "Lucy

In The Sky With Diamonds", Sparks with ‘’Never Turn Your Back On Mother Earth’’ to the infectious

Pop of Blue Swede's "Hooked On A Feeling" and The Wombles' playful "Remember You're A

Womble”. Hits from Leo Sayer, Scaffold and Lobo are joined by Easy-listening Pop from Neil Sedaka,

The New Seekers and Prelude’s hit cover of ‘’After The Goldrush’’. Timeless tracks from Diana Ross,

Elvis Presley, and Andy Williams bring an air of nostalgia, before the collection concludes with

uplifting tunes from Olivia Newton-John with her 1974 Eurovision contender, Sylvia Vrethammar’s

Summer holiday anthem, and ‘’Galloping Home’’ (literally) with the theme to one of the year’s most

popular TV programmes ‘The Adventures Of Black Beauty’.
