    Liner Note Author: Paul Grein.
    Rhino takes the low road for their sixth volume of '70s radio fare, mostly sidestepping the mega hits in order to bring you a mixed bag of true marginalia from the early years of the decade. Save for Stampeders' river-boat harmony side, "Sweet City Woman," and Five Man Electrical Band's Partridge Family-issue anthem "Signs," the majority here probably won't activate even the most persistent of nostalgic memories. That said, kitsch buffs will still delight in Bobby Russell's novelty portrait of the familial weekend ("Saturday Morning Confusion"), John Kongos' T Rex imitation ("He's Gonna Step on You Again"), and Lulu's overheated ballad musings ("Oh Me Oh My [I'm a Fool for You]"). And let's not forget the insidious influence of Tony Orlando & Dawn's "Tie a Yellow Ribbon" (Pipkins' "Gimme Dat Ding"), as well as premonitions of the Doobie Brothers' swamp country (Brewer & Shipley's "Tarkio Road") and Linda Ronstadt's belting ways (Gayle McCormick's "It's a Cryin' Shame"). ~ Stephen Cook
