The 70’s was the decade that set records for single sales and with 60 Huge Hits including 24 UK #1 singles, Platinum 70s celebrates the amazing talent and diversity of that decade.

Queen’s ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’ kicks off Disc One, and is joined by some of the greatest pop-rock tracks of all time from Paul McCartney & Wings, Gerry Rafferty, Rod Stewart, The Who, Derek & The Dominos’ ‘Layla’ and the timeless brilliance of Electric Light Orchestra’s ‘Mr. Blue Sky’.

Toward the end of the decade, newer artists were producing massive hit records with some of the most creative and iconic tracks of all time defying the ‘art-rock’, ‘punk’ or ’new wave’ genres being attributed to them. Platinum 70s includes landmark songs from Kate Bush with 'Wuthering Heights', The Police with ‘Walking On The Moon’, The Clash’s ‘London Calling’, Elvis Costello & The Attractions’ ‘Oliver’s Army’ and Boomtown Rats with their classic ‘I Don’t Like Mondays’.

The 1970’s were the decade that introduced club culture to the world via Disco and Platinum 70s includes phenomenal floor-fillers from Chic, Donna Summer, Gloria Gaynor, Sister Sledge, Earth Wind & Fire, Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons and the incredible ‘Don’t Stop ’Til You Get Enough’ which launched the ‘Off The Wall’ era of Michael Jackson. Alongside are huge soul tracks that crossed into the discos from the likes of The Crusaders, Diana Ross and Odyssey.

Some of the most beautiful ballads ever recorded are also included : ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’ by Simon Garfunkel, ‘Imagine’ by John Lennon and ‘I’m Not In Love’ by 10cc are all here, along with evergreen classics from Justin Hayward, The Commodores, Harry Nilsson, Leo Sayer and half of the 70s favourite TV cop duo ’Starsky & Hutch’, David Soul.

The ’70’s is also remembered for pure-pop brilliance that created songs that sound as fresh today as they did then… we are delighted to include Elton John & Kiki Dee’s ‘Don’t Go Breaking My Heart’, Boney M’s ‘Rivers Of Babylon’, Bay City Rollers’ ‘Bye Bye Baby’ alongside glam-tastic hits from Mud, Sweet, Sparks and Roxy Music and, of course, the decades’ biggest pop group with their biggest hit – Abba’s ‘Dancing Queen’.

This 3CD collection is housed in a striking package with embossed logo and Spot UV gloss so is sure to stand out and catch the eye.

60 defining tracks on 3 CDs : Platinum 70s is the essential round up of the decade.
