The ’70s have long been derided as a period of political crises, the loss of idealism, and some of history’s worst fashion errors. True, but the Me Decade was worth enduring if only for its soul music, a fantastic fusion of R&B, funk, and disco. The 136 songs on this six-CD collection are by turns political, lovelorn, and just plain fun, but always smooth and usually sexy. Everyone you’d expect is here (Al Green, Kool & the Gang, Sly & the Family Stone), plus more obscure folks like the Winstons, Ann Peebles, Honey Cone, Timmy Thomas, Johnny Bristol, Paul Humphrey & His Cool Aid Chemists — too many to mention. Fill your CD changer with these impeccable discs and put a smile on your face.
