Commodores On '70s Box Set

Continuing their mining of the culture of the happy-faced '70s, Rhino Records is preparing the release of a seven-CD box set entitled Have a Nice Decade: The '70s Pop Culture Box (June 16). The set, which features 161 unforgettable songs such as the Commodores' funky "Brick House," the Steve Miller Band's psychedelic rock classic "Fly Like an Eagle" and Harry Chapin's folk anthem "Cat's in the Cradle," will come covered in a shag-carpet-style material and feature snippets of time-relevant news stories in-between songs, such as a bit of late Beatles leader John Lennon's citizenship press conference.
