Odyssey (1995)

Updated: Jul 4


Odyssey is the second official compilation album by Christian singer -songwriter David Meece. Released in 1995, it is Meece's third and final release on Star Song Records.


This collection contains fifteen previously released songs and one brand new song "God's Promises/Rainbows in the Night." The new track's intro features Canon in D by Johann Pachelbel. In the CD linear notes, Meece dedicated the album "to those who are wearied by the doubt, loneliness and pain of living in a world more adept at accepting evil than expecting good." Meece calls these songs "God's promises" and it's a journey to get to know God more even in the midst of struggles and finding rainbows of peace above the storms of life. Odyssey includes "One Small Child," a Christmas recording from the 1990 various artists album Our Christmas. It's a song he wrote when Meece was eighteen years old.


NOTE: "God's Promises/Rainbows in the Night" would be David Meece's final single to Christian radio giving him his final Top 10 hit climbing to number 8 on The CCM Update Christian AC chart. At the time, Meece was working on his next album that was titled Send Down the Rain that was to be released in 1996, but Star Song Records was going through some personnel changes and Meece was dropped from the label and the album remains unreleased. Meece would not release an album of new material for six years. Odyssey is now out of print and it is not available digitally. A YouTube playlist is posted below this article.
