OsibisaWoyaya ... CD
Lineca (Germany), 1971. Used ... $6.99
These early Osibisa records always used to be fairly common years back – perhaps because they were always a bit too hippy dippy and loose for the older funk crowd. But now, in today's blunted groove culture, they seem to have found a new appreciation for their trippy Afro funk style, and ... read more CD
