Ace's "Hit List" series returns with another top-notch collection of US Hot 100 hits from the first half of the 1970s. The 1970s are now viewed with the same serious musical appreciation as the 50s and 60s. "Hit List 2" will be a valuable addition to the collection of anyone who grew up listening to the decade's vibrant music. The album-oriented sound of FM radio might have arrived in the US by the start of the decade, but via the AM band you could still hear a diversity of snappy 45s on your transistor radio. "Hit List 2" revisits another 24 of those singles, many of which were also successful in the UK. All versions heard here are the original US single versions, rather than the often-different album versions that have frequently been compiled into other 70s collections. In true Ace style, many of the featured artists are as popular now as when they charted with these songs, while for others our featured selection represented their one moment of chart fame. The CD booklet features extensive track-by-track annotation and a treasure trove of memorabilia, including a pan-global panorama of every label of every 45 that's featured.
