Tony Powers

KISS recorded the song before its writer Tony Powers recorded his version. Tony was a songwriter in the employ of hit songwriters Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. He later wrote and performed a comedy video piece, "Don't Nobody Move (This Is A Heist)," which included "Odyssey" and two other songs, the title track and "Midnight Trampoline." This would also be released as a record on Sony in 1984. In the storyline this song represents the hero's knowledge, "That there is something greater than one's self involved" (KISS PR). This song includes Alan Schwartzberg on drums and Gene had originally wanted to sing the piece with Paul only taking the lead vocal at the last moment.
