HERC has said it before about other albums but this time he really means it (at least until the next one comes along): Star Power may be his favorite K-tel album EVER based solely on the songs contained within it's two grooves.  He's still got some of them on 45 and he's hoping for a decent score on the K-Tel Scale. Whatever the outcome, HERC is definitely on the prowl for a copy of Star Power.  Eighteen tracks with all but two of them from 1977 and at least one #1 from the Pop, R&B and AC charts.

HERC has a total of four 45s from Star Power - the two pictured above and the two pictured below.  They are all some of his all-time favorite songs and remain in heavy rotation here at The Hideaway.

And now the moment of truth, the album's rating on the K-tel Scale...

With one song completely missing the Top 40 and five other songs failing to crossover at all, Star Power fails to break into Top 10 on the K-tel Scale.

In Canada, Star Power was released as a double LP with only 17 songs.  It had only three tracks in common with US edition so below, HERC had has created a playlist of available Spotify tracks.

  1. How did "Heaven on the Seventh Floor" and "Boogie Fever" NOT make the disco chart?!? Mindboggling.
