Pain is the second studio album by The Ohio Players, and their debut for the Westbound label. After recording an album for Capitol Records in 1968, the group had split up. Some of the members decided to take a chance once more and it led them to Armen Boladian, whose Westbound label in Detroit was the then-home of George Clinton and his band Funkadelic. The group recorded Pain and was released as a single. Positive feedback lead to Boladian signing them for a full contract, making the band record. Pain - Ohio Players. Лента с персональными рекомендациями и музыкальными новинками, радио, подборки на любой вкус, удобное управление своей коллекцией. This is the 1972 full vinyl album by the Ohio Players, titled Pain. Album played in stereo. Side 2 starts at the 15:40 mark. But with Pain, they became a lot more experimental and unveiled an interesting, distinctive brand of funk that incorporated elements of jazz and blues as well as rock. The jazz influence is especially strong on Never Had a Dream, Singing in the Morning, and the hit title song, while The Reds is a progressive blues number that draws on jazz as well as psychedelic rock.

Album 1972 13 Songs. Signed to a Detroit label Westbound, home to Funkadelic, The Ohio Players released their second album three years after their Capitol Records debut, to little fanfare. The 1972 release expanded here from six to 13 songs peaked at No. 177 on the Billboard album chart, a number that hardly foreshadowed their future successes. Still, the albums stature has grown tremendously over the years, and for good reason. Listen free to Ohio Players Pain Pain, Never Had a Dream and more. 6 tracks 30:14. Ohio Players.
