OSIBISA "Y sharp" (1971)

The early Seventies were great.  Tons of variety were seeping into the listening habits of young rock n' rollers.  (Into the charts, maybe not so much.) 

We heard, all of a sudden, African music (Highlife, Afro Beat, South African), Japanese music (Pink Lady even had an American TV show; don't forget the Sadistic Mika Band), Italian pop music, Brazilian. I know that I heard it, and if I heard it, it could be heard. 

Of course now we can access every damn thing on the YouTube, but forgive this old man for wondering if a little bit of variety would be a good thing in the listening of everyday people too.
