The Osu Band - Light Up My Fire (Shaka Records) 45

Recommended Posts


I'm looking for this record 7 inch on shaka records backed with the title "merry go round"

I found an article about this obscure release so I was hoping if some of you got this in stock ?

extract of the article :

"In 1983, Sakyi, together with versatile musicians velvety voiced singer Ashitey de Luv, bassist Bibi Dowuona-Hammond, guitarist Aweke Glymin and drummer Joel Jacobus, formed the OSU band, performed several live jazz oriented shows in clubs like Keteke, Black Ceasar, Impulse, etc. and later left for London, UK, where they teamed up with Osibisa's Alfred Bannerman and Emmanuel Rentzos under the SHAKA Records label and recorded and released "Merry Go Round/Light Up My Fire".

This hard funk single made huge waves in the UK, beating Eddy Grant's "Romancing the Stone" and Imagination's "Illusion" in the prestigious Blues and Soul chart ratings. This phenomenal OSU single featured American top ten artistes, Princess on guest vocals, international percussionist Francis Forster (Paul Simon), virtuoso saxophonists George Lee and Ray Allen, and several others."
