Brandon Hixson's The LOST HITS OF THE LATE 1970's: Vols. 1-5

Brandon Hixson returns with the first five in a planned nine volume series he calls Lost Hits Of The Late 1970's - The Ultimate "Oh I Forgot All About This Song!!" Collection. Brandon's definition of a lost hit may not match your own definition but I challenge anyone to say they are familiar with all 100 songs Brandon has rounded up below. For me, it was more "Oh I Never Heard That Song Before" than "Oh I Forgot All About This Song!!" - I was lucky enough to recognize 36 out of the 100.
