Many Odysseys

Four bands, one name (well, one and a bit).

We start with the best known of the bunch, who had a string of hits in the 1970s and 1980s; the second lot put out an album on a Motown subsidiary in 1972, from which this track comes; the third were from New York and released this Janis Ian cover the year before; and we end with the great James Blood Ulmer and pals larking about in 2005.

"Don't Tell Me, Tell Her" - Odyssey

"Battened Ships" - Odyssey

"Society's Child" - Odyssey

"Happy Time" - Odyssey The Band

Vote for your favourite Odyssey now! I don't wish to be accused of trying to manipulate the result, but my money is on the one from the Philippines, seen here rocking Calamba City back in 2013.


  1. Looks like your team win by default, George. Congratulations

    1. I don't usually side with winning teams (where's the fun in that?) but I too vote for track 3.
