OsibisaHappy Children ... LP
Warner, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $14.99
This UK Afro Funk group is slicking things up a bit for this 1973 album – but not in a bad way, because it actually kicks up the groove considerably. In fact, it almost sounds like they've been listening to a bit of War – because the the best tracks on the album have lots of that funky clavinet and stepping bass that you get in War's best moments, filtered through the group's own dubby brand of African rhythms, vaguely like the work of Cymande, but a bit more straight ahead. Titles include "Somaja", "Fire", "Kotoku", "We Want To Know", "Take Your Trouble Go", "Bassa Bassa", and "Adwoa". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. Cover has a bumped corner and a promo sticker.)

OsibisaWoyaya ... CD
Decca, 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 their nice laidback groove. This album includes a great version of Roland Kirk's "Spirits Up Above", plus "Beautiful 7", "Move On", "Survival", and "Rabiatu" – all of which have the band's trademark Afro funk groove. Nice Roger Dean cover, too! CD
Also available Woyaya ... LP 9.99

✨✧ OsibisaSunshine Day – The Pye/Bronze Anthology (Welcome Home/Ojah Awake/Mystic Energy) ... CD
Castle (UK), 1975/1976/1980. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Seminal work from Osibisa – arguably the most successful crossover African soul group of the 70s! The group blended together American soul, African rhythms, and some occasional surprising Latin touches – in a mode that sometimes recalled the style of War, especially on the group's first few groundbreaking albums. The groove was one that was filled with joy, life, and light – well-played and produced at a level that helped Osibisia cross over into audiences that few of their contemporaries could reach – and almost having the same impact on African music that Santana had with Latin grooves. This 2CD set brings together all 3 albums from the group's years at Bronze – the albums Welcome Home, Ojah Awake, and Mystic Energy – all produced with a sound that's tighter than their earlier MCA or Warner sides, but in a way that almost seems to suit the group even better. 5 bonus tracks are also added to the albums – making for a whopping 31 track package that includes the tracks "The Warrior", "The Coffee Song", "Sunshine Day", "Welcome Home", "Densu Trad", "Do It", "Right Now", "Uhuru", "Bum To Bum", "Sunset", "Ojah Awake", "Meeting Point", "Africa We Go Go", "Pata Pata (12" mix)", "Jumbo", and "Cherryfield".

Kiki GyanFeeling So Good ... CD
Everland (Austria), 1979. New Copy ... $14.99
A fantastic groover from Kiki Gyan – a singer from Ghana who worked in Osibisa during the early 70s – but one who's also got a really universal club vibe here on this overlooked gem from the end of the 70s! The record's got a bubbling, upbeat vibe that really lives up to its title – with a cross between American boogie grooves of the period, and maybe some of the more complicated rhythms that you'd expect from Gyan's legacy – all woven together with a sound that's tight, but never commercial at all – just right-on-the money funk with a clubby spin, on titles that include "Disco Dancer", "Sunshine Baby", "Sexy Dance", "We Make Music", "Black Afro Punk", and "Alhaji Who Are You".
