Description

For the very first time you can now get your hands on a Definitive Collection of the Funk sensation that was The Ohio Players. ?Robinsongs are proud to be the first label to combine the Capitol, Westbound, Mercury, Arista & Boardwalk repertoire to make this unique set... but we did not stop there; it also includes material from Band members: Junie Morrison, Sugarfoot & Shadow (Beck, Willis & Diamond) to give you a total career overview of this legendary Funk Band. ?This package also includes a 28-page colour booklet, featuring an essay by Christian John Wikane a New York based music journalist, with contributions by the band?s drummer and architect of the Ohio Players beat James ?Diamond? Williams. ?DISC TWO kicks off with arguably the band?s biggest hit ?Fire? which went to #1 in the R&B chart and the Album went to #1 in the Billboard album chart, three other #1 singles feature on this disc ?Sweet Sticky Thing?, ?Love Rollercoaster? and ?Who?d She Coo? which was also the Bands only UK chart single. Other stand out tracks on this disc are ?I Want To Be Free?, ?O-H-I-O? and ?Fopp?. ?The final CD covers the transition to Arista & Boardwalk Records, and features the full-length version of ?Everybody Up? plus tracks by Junie - ?Love Has Taken Me Over?, Shadow - ?Born To Hustle? and Sugarfoot?s 1985 cover of ?Fire?. This truly is a Definitive Collection.
