Lillian Lopez, one of the founding members of disco group Odyssey, passed away on Tuesday from cancer. She was 76.
Odyssey was the brainchild of sisters Lillian and Louise Lopez, although Louise would leave the group before it broke out. Tony Reynolds came on board for their first album, Odyssey, which produced their biggest U.S. hit, Native New Yorker.
McEachern replaced Reynolds starting with the second album, 1978′s Hollywood Party Tonight, and would stay with them through the rest of their contract with RCA. They never had another Pop or R&B hit in the U.S. but scored well in the U.K.
