Product Description

Now available on CD in Digipak format. Fourth album issued in 1973 from one of the pioneering World Music bands. A more contemporary production than their classic first trio of albums, paving way for later chart success with Sunshine Day . Features keyboards from Cat Stevens sideman Jean Roussel. Leader Teddy Osei recently used the album to publicise his Dream Child Foundation in his native Ghana. Includes 5 bonus tracks: A promo single version of Happy Children with flip side; the single version of a cover of the Jimi Hendrix classic Fire , its B-side and an edited US promo version in mono. Booklet with authoritative and extensive liner notes written by respected Record Collector journalist Michael Heatley, including an interview with Osibisa founder Teddy Osei. Expertly remastered superb sound - top quality reproduction. The best in the business!

Happy Children, Happy customer 23 May 2014
By Shamus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Repertoire Records (UK) did great to bring this album back for CD release. I have had Happy Children by Osibisa since 1974 after it was released in 1973, on vinal. I also have a couple of others by the band, but this is truly their best work. If you are going to own just one Osibisa, then Happy Children you must have. Every track is stacked with music that tells of a unique form of cris-cross in percusion rythem that is performed by brilliant African musicians. The CD also has a wee booklet that tells the Osibisa story that vinal did not have.

All tracks are fantastic and my main choice is 'Fire'. Once again, many thanks to Amazon.
