Releases information

This release is the two 1976 albums "Welcome Home" and "Ojah Awake" packaged as a 2 CD "Very Best Of" compilation, and does not represent a cross-section of the work from Osibisa. Sadly the original album artwork is also not represented in any way; the accompanying "booklet" is a single leaf card with no album or band information.

Gemini Catalogue No. 220416-303 - P & C 2001 Musicline AG

Due to the lack of information provided with this release the line-up details are copied from the ProgArchives listings of the "Welcome Home" and "Ojah Awake" albums.

Review by T.Rox
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
1 stars Can I have my money back, please?

Yes, I should have researched this one a little better before I spent my hard earned money on it! This 2CD "Very Best Of" compilation is simply the two 1976 pop-oriented studio albums "Welcome Home" & "Ojah Awake" in one release, made at a time when Osibisa and Bronze records were searching for commercial success. The work is poorly repackaged by the Gemini label; there is no booklet to speak of (just a single leaf insert) - no sign of the original art work from the two original albums - not even a list of the musicians, let alone what part they contributed.

If you want to know about the music on this compilation of albums, read the reviews under the individual album references; If you want to own this music from Osibisa my suggestion would be to buy the original albums rather than this compilation . I am sure even the most die-hard of completionist would not want this offering. One star from me!
