Odyssey is a three-disc, 43-track collection that features ubiquitous producer, DJ, and music fan William Orbit doing all three. Disc one is split into a cocktail with two-thirds made up of tracks that he likes or has produced (or in some cases here, reworked a bit) by various artists including Robbie Williams, Gavin Friday, Laurie Mayer, Dusted, John Barry, and Skye, with the remaining one-third comprised of some of his own rarities: a reworking of Bassomatic's "Fascinating Rhythm," an instrumental version of Beth Orton's "Where Do You Go" (a song they co-wrote), All Saints' "Black Coffee," the bonus track of "G155" from the Hello Waveforms album, and some others. Disc two is an extension of disc one with none of his exclusives, and is unmixed. This is a selection one might hear on his KCRW radio program in Los Angeles. Disc three is a continuous mix that works on the club level. It's most notable for the rare original demo of "Water from a Vine Leaf" that he cut with Orton -- the first vocal track the pair every cut together. But it also contains remixes of Terry Lynn's "Kingstonlogic," Dirty Vegas' "Dance with Me," and Orbit's own crazy "Chicken," under his WTF? moniker (it's a nutjob percussion solo). There's also a thoroughly reworked version of Larry Tee's "I Love U [Bart B More Secured Dub]." The hallmarks of Orbit the producer are, however, evident on almost every bit of this set in the form of an added tweak here and there, some bells, a bass echo, cymbals, reverb, a guitar line overdubbed, etc. This is one for the collectors. That said, there still needs to be an adequate retrospective compiled of only his productions and recorded work, but the licensing for that project would be a real labor of love -- i.e., a nightmare -- because there is so much.
