Cat No:  SEWA 004

The first in Ace Records' programme to release all three Ohio Players Westbound albums on vinyl. Pain was their first for the label, released in 1972. The album charted relatively modestly at #21, but it was the six months that it spent on the charts that was the surest indicator of what was to come. The band was touring heavily and was just a hit away from a breakthrough. This would come with their next Westbound album, Pleasure, and the hit, Funky Worm.

Featuring the first of Joel Brodsky s series of iconic covers. Regular weight black vinyl in a gatefold sleeve.
