For years, Adventures in Odyssey albums have included 12
episodes as a standard in each collection, give or take a few albums
which have been revised for episode chronology. In recent years,
production costs for the show have risen. For a couple years, Focus
on the Family released only one album per year and fans became
concerned. With the launch of the
Club in 2014, the team went back to producing 24 episodes each
year. Twelve episodes are now in production for the numbered audio
series each year, and twelve additional exclusive episodes are
produced for OAC members. As a result, episode quantity per album
has been reduced so that fans can look forward to the release of two
albums each year, as was done in the past. Albums 1-58 contain
twelve episodes or more, and albums 59+ move forward with a slightly
different package design and six episodes. The Odyssey team still
produces 24 episodes each year, and families can enjoy the benefits
of both numbered and exclusive OAC episodes via an
Club membership. Although this may concern some listeners, the
good news is that the
Club has provided a means to keep Adventures in Odyssey
in production from year to year. That, to us, makes the change
Adventures in Odyssey albums have never looked the same
throughout the years. By releasing albums again with a fresh design
and new artwork, fans can enjoy a more consistent look to the series
in their collections. Most of these collections have already been
redesigned and are already available since the repackaging project
is nearly complete. Please refer to our detailed
Repack Schedule for more information.
As you may or may not know, albums 1-15 are currently called The Gold Audio Series. They
were put together during a time when everyone was catching
up to the Digital Age and upgrading their products with cool
titles like "digitally remastered." AIO released albums 1-15
as the Gold Audio Series when they phased out cassette releases for the show.
However, now that we've all been drifting through the
Digital Age for a while now, it's time to switch things up
even more. Focus is planning to repack
the Gold Audio Series albums with the typical arches and rays layout that
we've become so familiar with in all the repacks. The illustration will remain
the same, but the arches and layout will be changed to
reflect the packaging for the entire series. It's
all part of an effort to create a more consistent look for the series.
That's right. The Gold
Audio Series is way out the door. It served its purpose
during a time when companies were getting up with the
industry standard. Be watching in the days ahead for
upcoming images of these releases.
Please refer to our detailed Repack
Schedule for more information.

album repacks here, also linked

The Adventures in Odyssey logo has changed periodically since the
show began. The Odyssey team refined the existing logo for better
readability and a more vibrant look. The logo on albums 1-50 will remain
and the new logo will be featured on albums 51+ and additional brand
