Skin Tight was a major turning point for the Ohio Players, who had enjoyed several hits on black radio (including "Pain," "Funky Worm," "Varee Is Love," and "I Wanna Hear From You") but hadn't been huge. Switching from Westbound to Mercury, the Dayton funksters became exactly that - huge - and went from enjoying a cult following to being one of the most celebrated funk bands of the 1970s
Ecstasy is the fourth studio album by the Ohio Players and the third released through the Westbound label. The album was produced by the band, and arranged by Walter "Junie" Morrison. The cover photo was taken by Joel Brodsky. All tracks written by Ohio Players, except where noted. Walter "Junie" Morrison. Leroy "Sugarfoot" Bonner. Marshall "Rock" Jones.

Climax is the sixth album by The Ohio Players and the first of two compiled from tracks left over from previous sessions recorded for the Detroit-based Westbound label. They were signed to Mercury by the time Climax hit stores, and the album features only five new songs (with the other three pulled from previous albums). Their Mercury debut, Skin Tight, was released several months earlier.
