In the late 70s, you couldn’t avoid this album, and you either loved it or hated it. I fell into the former category, as it was the first style of popular music that I’d ever latched onto. More than 25 years later, with several #1 hit singles to its credit, it still stands up strong musically and has become a time capsule of its era. In my case, this album was not only a heavy favorite, it tuned me in to collecting 12″ singles which, at the time, were $2.99 or $3.99, easy for a teenager to afford. Little did I know that within a decade or two, many of these would become highly collectible. (My copy of Chicago’s “Street Player” would fetch anywhere from $150 to $300 right now…not bad for a $3.99 purchase!)
