Hits from the ’70s and ’80s together in one mellow and melodic CD collection

Sit back and relax with the softer side of rock.

Included with the collection is a 32-page booklet with stories about the songs and artists. You’ll also receive the bonus CD "The Air That I Breathe" as our gift to you for ordering.

Featuring artists like…

  • Chicago
  • Christopher Cross
  • Air Supply
  • Foreigner
  • Peter Frampton
  • Ambrosia

Upgrade to the Deluxe Edition

As a special offer, you can upgrade your order to include 8 more CDs featuring even more soft rock hits of the ‘70s by big stars like Jim Croce, Looking Glass, Three Dog Night, and Andy Gibb. You’ll get 120 additional songs including “Brandy (You're a Fine Girl)” by Looking Glass, “Billy, Don't Be A Hero” by Bo Donaldson & The Heywoods, “Saturday Night” by Bay City Rollers and many more.
