Do you ever feel like those standard hits-of-the-70s compilations don’t quite capture the 1970s that you remember? Do you feel like many of your personal favorites, even when they were big hits, are rarely if ever included? That’s why we created Hard To Find 45s On CD, Volume 18: 70s Essentials – to bring back all those seldom-heard classics that other collections seem to have forgotten. And we make them sound better than ever!

These 21 chart hits include not only 13 Top 10 singles but also two major stereo debuts: “Venus” by Shocking Blue and “Gypsy Woman” by Brian Hyland! Hard to find? These Top 3 hits were impossible to find in STEREO until now!

Some of these hits aren’t even available to stream or download! Like “The Night Chicago Died” by Paper Lace and “Sometimes When We Touch” by Dan Hill. If you want to hear the originals the way they ought to be heard – in sparkling, uncompressed audiophile quality – then you’ll have to listen to them here!

Other choice cuts include the rare single version of “Tubular Bells” by Mike Oldfield, the sweet country-pop favorite “Daisy A Day” by Jud Strunk, the poignant “I’ve Never Been To Me” by Charlene, and Bobby Vinton’s rare and final Top 10 hit “My Melody of Love,” all sounding as if they could have been recorded yesterday!

Eric Records’ #1 goal is to preserve for future generations specially selected pop music gems in the highest possible quality before the original hit sources are lost to time and decay. No other label puts as much care and effort into providing the correct versions of the original hit singles you remember, remastered for remarkable clarity. This CD is a great value, too – over 72 minutes of STEREO hits that aren’t available in audiophile quality like this from iTunes and Spotify (if they’re downloadable at all!).

Includes a 12-page booklet with complete song-by-song annotation and liner notes by Greg Adams. No matter how many collections of Seventies music you own, you don’t have another one that “Feels So Good.”
