The final part of our vinyl trilogy of the Ohio Players' Westbound albums is the "Ecstasy" LP from 1973.A gatefold sleeve featuring one of photographer Joel Brodsky's famous photographs. This time a bondage woman is chained to two scantily dressed men. The music was brilliant. The mix of funk, soul and sheer joyous invention found its outlet in what is probably the strongest overall set by the band. 'Sleep Talk', 'Food Stamps Y'All' and the title track all pack a mighty punch, while songs such as 'You And Me' show the band's deft touch with the more soulful material.
