news image

The most definitive collection of Osibisa’s singles releases, with several hard-to-find A & B-sides, 12 Inch extended, remixes and Promo-only singles, now all together for the first time on this newly remastered 4CD set.

Booklets feature detailed release data and authoritative liner notes by Gerry Ranson of R2 magazine, featuring new quotes from Teddy Osei, founder and leader of Osibisa. And, for the first time since their MCA Records debut, Roger Dean has created a new cover artwork specifically for this release.

Since their launch in the early 1970s on the MCA label, Osibisa was one of the first bands to create awareness of African music, combining talents from both West Africa and the Caribbean.They pioneered an exotic and exciting blend of High Life rhythms and hard rock to create sensational sounds that would also appeal to European and American audiences.

Osibisa brought dancing back to the rock scene with their criss-cross African rhythms and established themselves as firm favourites with festival fans in the UK and throughout Europe. Osibisa brought a breath of fresh air to the concert goers, where audiences could get up and join in the excitement generated by this high energy band.

Release on the 18th September 2015.
