I Got The Melody (Expanded Edition) - Odyssey

I Got The Melody (Expanded Edition)
ODYSSEY started life as The Lopez Singers, a female vocal group from Connecticut, in 1968. The original line up was the three Lopez sisters Carmen, Lillian and Louise, however Carmen left soon after and was replaced by Filipino singer and bassist Tony Reynolds. It was this line-up which went on to have worldwide success with the hit single "Native New Yorker” in 1977, taken from their debut self-titled LP "Odyssey," which was the first of their albums to be re-issued by BBR. In 1978 Reynolds was replaced by Billy McEachern and gave the group a settled line up which was a springboard for their continued success on both sides of the Atlantic.  

I GOT THE MELODY (R&B #62/Pop #175/UK #29) was the groups fourth LP, released in 1981 and followed on from 1980's "Hang Together” and its predecessor, 1978's "Hollywood Party Tonight,” which is also released by BBR this month.  By this point Odyssey had gained a strong following in the UK due to the success of singles ‘Use It Up And Wear It Out,’ ‘If You're Looking For A Way Out’ and ‘Hang Together’ from the album of the same name, which they capitalized on with the release of I GOT THE MELODY.

The first single to be released from I GOT THE MELODY was the classic R&B track ‘Going Back To My Roots’ penned by legendary Motown songwriter Lamont Dozier.  ‘Going back...’ climbed to #68 R&B and #58 Disco in the US, and secured the groups popularity in the UK where it reached #4 on the singles chart. ‘Going Back...’ is featured  in a medley on the album itself called ‘Roots Suite,’ sandwiched by ‘Ajomora’ and ‘Baba Awa,’ the latter of which being another of the strongest tracks in this set and is featured on this release in its single version along with ‘Going Back...’.  ‘It Will Be Alright’ was the second single to be released and again struck a chord in the UK where e it reached #43 in the singles chart.

BBR is very proud to bring you the first ever CD release anywhere in the world of I GOT THE MELODY, completely remastered and repackaged complete with extensive liner notes, interviews and bonus content. I GOT THE MELODY is an essential purchase for all R&B, Soul, Disco and Pop fans out there!
