Album 21 Repackaged!

As Focus continues to re-release its old albums with the updated layout, I am continually amazed by some of the artwork illustrator Gary Locke continues to produce. I realize there are those who prefer the original artwork, but these new designs seem way more vibrant than the previous ones. Gary's illustrations have the tendency to make the scenes stand out in the same way that a pop-up book makes simple drawings come to life. In Album 21: Wish You Were Here, we see one of our favorite Odyssey duos during their trip through California. I especially like how the truck appears to "jump out" of the picture... it really makes for a visually appealing cover. Much moreso than the original.



This latest repack is scheduled to release in December. Thoughts?

  4. I like the new covers, very interesting, and I would love to have albums with those covers. But I already have almost all of the Odyssey albums, and it makes me sad theyre releasing these awesome new albums and I probably won't be getting them :(
