Album Notes

The Platinum Collection is intended for "Casual Fans" (those who own very few albums, but would like to get a full understanding of the show's full range). This album contains 12 CDs with a total of 36 episodes. The set is divided into three wallets containing 4 CDs each.

The Encore Collection complements the Platinum Collection quite well. Both products are similar in design and purpose.
 

Our Review

 

So for a while there, I was worried that since I already have the entire Odyssey collection, it wouldn't be worth it to get a copy of the Encore Collection. Boy, was I wrong! If you're having the same problem, then let me tell you a little bit about what you get.

 

For starters, the packaging is beautiful. The box contains three separate sets. Each set features a different decade from the Adventures in Odyssey era. It may interest many of you that the 1980's portion of the product has a nice tip-of-the-hat to artist Bruce Day in that they showcased a couple of his pieces which appeared on albums. He illustrated the earlier collections before they were released as the Gold Audio Series. When you open the 1990's set you'll notice a showcase of the artwork from that era as well. The 2000's set follows suit and features some of our current artist's work, Gary Locke. But that's not all.

 

Each set in the Encore Collection contains a special behind-the-scenes write-up about each decade, a Key Characters sections, and an interesting Timeline. In essence, you get a three-decade quick summary of the key events around town. If you have the Official Guide, we'll just call the Encore Collection a very abbreviated form of it. This collection is great for collectors and new fans. I'd certainly recommend it for new listeners who don't know where to start with a collection of 50+ albums.

 

To collectors out there, I'd say go for it. I know you're out there, trying to decide if it's worth the purchase. Likewise, I also highly recommend the Platinum Collection as well. It also has some behind-the-scenes features, fun facts, and highlights of older artwork as well. Not to mention you get 12 CDs in each collection. It's AIO at its best!
