3 stars At this time Osibisa sounds likea Funk Rock band, with just a blend of Jazz and african rhytms. Only the lyrics differs from the contemporary Funk/Soul group of the times

The first side consists of four pretty good songs, first there's the funky "Sunshine Day" and then the softer "Welcome Home". After comes a quite good traditional (of Ghana I guess) song, "Densu", and last is "Chooboi (Heavy Ho)", best of side One.

In the beginning, the second side isn't as good as the first but it kicks of with the keyboard and guitar heavy "Seaside-Meditation". Whish IMO is the best track of the record! "Uhuru" doesn't disappoint at all and the last track, "Kolomashie" - another traditional - is a worthy ending.

Not much more than a good Funk album though, but - as with many Osibisa albums - with a nice sleeve cover, especially the back!

Frasse | 3/5 |
