The Adventure Begins is the very first Odyssey album. Although, it wasn’t always called “The Adventure Begins”, it used to be called “The Early Classics”, and before that, it was called simply “Adventures in Odyssey”. This is where it all started. You can hear the very first episode, “Whit's Flop”, which introduces you to the wonderful world of Odyssey. You’ll meet teenager Connie Kendall, who just moved from California to Odyssey. Whit’s grandson Monty comes to town to spend the summer with him. Connie reads a story about a young boy who lied to his mother, and the events that followed. Tom Riley tells Connie the story of how and why Whit opened Whit’s End. This set is a must have for any Adventures in Odyssey fan, because it sets the stage for everything that happens later. I will give it a 10/10.
