Mine has brownish/yellowish labels but everything seems to be identical. Can anyone comment on that?

another classic 1977 album from the era when disco hit New York -and the rest of the world- big time. No cheesy vocals here but smart lyrics and beautiful melodies by Sandy Linzer and Denny Randell. Odyssey never made such great records after this album. I fell in love with the Big Apple when this was on the radio and played in the clubs. Such iconic music, such warmth and what a beautiful production by Tommy Mottola. "Easy Come, Easy Go / Hold De Mota Down" is one of those hidden gems that deserves to be discovered.
A classy & outstanding but unfortunately underrated album.

Odyssey was one of the bands that were managed by ex-Sony guru and ex-husband to Mariah Carey, Mister Tommy Mottola. Odyssey are one of my all time favorite disco groups since I grew up with their music. I recall always hearing my mother play this record when I was still very small. I'm guessing the reason why I was so connected to disco was because it was instilled in me at such a young age, lol. This record brings together the best of disco, funk and soul all in one. The lead single 'Native New Yorker' was a big hit in clubs everywhere back in 1977 and I totally get why, the 12" version is just incredible! On the album cut you get a nice taste of what was heard on the radio back in the day. Another one of my fav's from this album is 'Weekend Lover' because it's got the "it" factor for me on the album as a nice easy listening single. I really enjoy this one and recommend any 70's music enthusiast to check it out.
