Odyssey - Odyssey

I was a little surprised when I couldn't find this one on any blog. Maybe it's just my blogsearching skills that's messing me up. Anyway, this record was released on Mowest in 1972 and contains some rare groove classics, for example Our Lives Are Shaped By What We Love and Battened Ships, both great tunes. Another favourite of mine is the rocky funk of Black Top Island (Of The West). Most of the songs fit into the soul category, although there is some songs that makes me wonder how they came to be on this album, Country Tune for example. This was the only album this group ever released (if you're thinking of the disco group of the same name, stop it). Royce Jones and Billy Pierce is doing the lead vocals, Kathleen Warren plays piano, fender rhodes, vibes & sings, Warner Schwebke plays bass, Don Peake and Don Dacus plays guitars and Gene Pello plays drums.
