This review is from: Woyaya (Audio CD)
Osibisa was a joy to see live. As an uptight fourteen year old English boy who fancied himself as a bit of a hairy but still had to pass muster at school-dancing with joy was, well uncool. But this was music to celebrate. For the serious there was Dudu Pukewana and Assagai but Osibisa were the band to set the house alight with African sun, good vibes and just fun. And this was London in the era of progressive near heavy metal merchants and super groups formed to wilt under the weight of their own expectation. So into the studio. The first album Osibisa, was good. Woyaya has its moments. The beggining. But some of it such as 'move on' is a bit too busy. But this album is worth the price of the first three tracks and the finale Woyaya.All fisrt three Osibisa albums occupy a special place in my collection, get played from time to time and have lasted the distance. Good music always deserves our thanks and Osibisa were one of the best affordable gigs in the small clubs around London where packing them in was a crowd of fifty kids. You want something warm, good hearted and full of great energy. Buy this, Osibisa or Heads and have a ball.
