Ozobby Horn – Happy Joe (Nigeria, 1977, JBC)

Ozobby Horn was a very obscure band from Nigeria composed of three musicians that only released one and only very hard to find album, “Born To Move On”, before they totally disappear from the musical scene.

Among the 7 tracks that this LP contains , I decided to make you discover my favourite one, “Happy Joe”, a slow Afro Rock and Soul track with Fuzzy guitars and melancholic vocals – Enjoy !
