AllMusic Review by

Released on Superbird, a division of the U.K. label Cherry Red, this disc combines Ohio Players' fifth and seventh albums for the Mercury label, originally released in 1977 and 1978. While these albums weren't nearly as commercially successful as the four released from 1974-1976 (all of which went platinum or gold and topped Billboard's R&B chart), they performed moderately well. Among the charted singles here are "O-H-I-O" (the band's final Top Ten R&B hit), "Body Vibes," "Merry-Go-Round," "Funk-O-Nots," and "Time Slips Away." In 2010, when this came out, the two albums had been out of print on CD for several years.
