This is one of a number of 2 disc sets which I've bought recently from the series released by Cherry Records Ltd. Well done to whoever at Cherry Records came up with the idea of releasing albums on CD, for the first time, by a whole series of acts from the 70's!

I've always had a bit of a soft spot for Billy. I think he has such a soulful voice and I love his Eighties stuff, but apart from his Seventies mega hits, "Love Really Hurts Without You" and "Red Light Spells Danger", I wasn't familiar with his earlier work, until now that is!

Here we have his first two albums, his self-titled debut from 1976 and "City Limit" from 1980. Of the two, I much prefer the first album, despite its rather naff cover. Don't let the picture of Billy wearing a yellow, red and green combination put you off what is essentially an excellent set of songs, which is very Motown-esque in places. If you like three minute slices of upbeat, polished pop/soul you should enjoy this. In particular, I love "Tell Him To Move Over", "One Kiss Away" and "Eye Of A Storm", and have played them constantly since this arrived in the post! Of interest is that the album was produced by, and many of the songs co-written by, Ben Findon, who also wrote hits for Irish groups, The Dooleys and The Nolans.

The comprehensive sleeve notes state though that, rather surprisingly, this album failed to chart, despite featuring three hit singles. The brilliant "Red Light Spells Danger" is also included here as a bonus track, so all of Billy's Top 40 hits from the Seventies feature on this set.

The other album, "City Limit", has a great cover but generally I liked the tracks less. It's worthy of note though since it includes Billy's version of "Who's Gonna Rock You".

Well finally someone had the forsight to finally release these two classic GTO albums again on CD. Billy Ocean's first album is excellent, I still have my vinyl copy well worn but playable. The album is a blend of disco/soul well executed and highlight's Billy's vocal talent's well lending itself to the music of the time. City limit continues in the same vain, warm soulful sounds I have never come across a duff track. So well some Glam/7T's for thinking above the rest and long may the reissues continue.

Deserves 100 Stars. And a gold medal. 20 Sept. 2013
By superfuzz_bigmuff84 - Published on Amazon.com
This. Two. Album. Collection. Is. UNBELIEVABLE.

Although a big fan of his radio hits, I've never really gone out of my way before to track down and/or listen to full albums (I try not to buy 'Best Of's or 'Greatest Hits' albums...makes me feel like I'm missing out on the 'good stuff'). What made me purchase this was stumbling upon an extended version of 'Stay The Night'. Suddenly I was hearing a whole new Billy I never knew existed. One song was all it took.

I love and hate when albums come in a 'double set'. Great for me, because I'm getting a bargain, bad for everyone else because these albums should be available separately (and readily) for the public to buy. Why can't I find them on Amazon separately? These albums are AMAZING...you can't tell me they're not being released anymore?!?! What a travesty that would be, for people 'new' to Billy Ocean and for Billy Ocean himself. A wonderful, exceptional talent.

Of course I played the **** out of 'City Limit' (album) first. I hate and have trouble defining musical genres. Why can't great music just be called great music? Instead of post-this, pre-that, semi disco cum R & B with a rinse of pop through it.

I can't define this music. I can't explain it. 'City Limit' definitely sounds more 80s than 'Billy Ocean'. Which isn't surprising...cause it was made in the early 80s, as opposed to 'Billy Ocean', released circa 1976. 'Billy Ocean' sounds like a combo between motown, some R & B and a pinch of disco. 'Billy Ocean' is more upbeat than 'City Limit', which has quite a few ballad-y and slower/more intense songs. Although I thought it couldn't get much better than 'City Limit' (highlight songs for me include Stay the Night, City Limit, and My Love), 'Billy Ocean' really stole my heart. This is a FANTASTIC road trip album, lazy sunday album, working around the house album, getting a few friends over during the daytime album. 'Billy Ocean' is perhaps one of my favourite albums ever. Every song is a treasure. Every single one I like. EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. 'City Limit' (album) probably has more of the Billy Ocean flavour that people are used to hearing, albeit slightly different from his later hit singles, which seem to be more pop related. Simply put, both albums are a must.

This guy has talent. We all know that. But to simply reduce this inspiration to 'talent' is being ridiculously vague. His voice is warm, silky, husky, inviting, addictive. I get the same warm, wonderful feeling when I listen to Otis Redding. Billy is a phenomenal musical treasure. From his voice alone, I get the feeling this guy is simply a wonderful, genuine, decent guy. His voice is passionate and unparalleled.

I recommend this two CD collection. I guarantee that you will be listening to these over and over and over again. And wondering why in the hell half the songs on the album weren't released as singles. This music is incredibly good. This is the Billy people need to know about.

That's it. I'm going to track down a Billy Ocean tshirt. This guy is my 'new' musical hero.
