Had a conversation with a good friend about the Rhino's Have A Nice Day series last week. The talk was sparked by his recent discovery of the Have A Nice Christmas disc despite it being featured here on HERC's Hideaway just last year. Which led to to the question: Are there more Have A Nice Day discs? Kinda. The Have A Nice Decade box set features seven discs, each with 20-24 songs, topping out at 164 songs total. It features some duplication of songs from both the Have A Nice Day and equally enjoyable Didn't It Blow Your Mind series. But a month before the Decade box was released, Rhino quietly released Have A Nice Night, featuring a dozen "Romantic Hits Of The '70s".
All but two of the songs are indeed from the '70s. Five of them were previously included on various discs in the Have A Nice Day series with three of those also appearing on Have A Nice Decade but that leaves six songs (including those two from the '80s) that hadn't been featured under the Have A Nice... banner. Now you know.
