Ohio Players

In their Seventies heyday, the Ohio Players churned out horn-laden funk and early disco while sporting matching spandex and oversized Afros. The sexiest gatefold LPs ever produced (Pain, Pleasure, Ecstasy, Honey, Climax) hosted a solid-gold hit parade (“Fire,” “Skin Tight”). The ninepiece currently riding the “Love Rollercoaster” boasts drummer James “Diamond” Williams, who joined the band in 1973, and members from lineups that same decade. – Thomas Fawcett
