Adventures in Odyssey: Encore Collection
The party isn't over yet! After the runaway success of Platinum Collection, don't miss this exciting new Adventures in Odyssey collection that celebrates the family values and unforgettable characters of everyone's favorite small town.
Encore Collection spotlights our greatest adventures by decade—1980's, 1990's and 2000's—with laughs, suspense, teachable moments, and more in every story. Plus, this set features photos and other bonus material introducing families to the show's fun characters, talented actors, and even how Adventures in Odyssey is made.
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.
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
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
