When their third Westbound album, Ecstasy, came out in 1973, they were still a year away from signing with Mercury and becoming really huge. But they did have a small cult following, which found that Ecstasy fell short of the excellence of Pain and Pleasure. Nonetheless, the material is respectable and generally decent. Serious Players fans will find sweaty funk items like "Spinning," "Black Cat," and the title song to be enjoyable even though they aren't among the band's essential recordings.

The Ohio Players’ last album for Westbound, ‘Ecstasy’, shows the group already moving toward more commercial terrain. This was mostly evident through the swapping of drummers; heavy hitter Greg Webster was replaced by the more refined James ‘Diamond’ Williams during these sessions. But it still contains plenty of that raw funky filth that had adorned the band’s two predecessing longplayers.
