Customer Reviews


Osirs is funky band out of the Washington DC area. These are musicians who actually played instruments. Though they didn't get much national attention, this band is funky. Even there slow ballads will take you back in time. I was fortuanate enough to see these guys rehearse and play live on several occasions, thanks to the late Elton Jewell "E", whose brother was drumer for the band. Songs I recommend are "Gritt On it", Say you Will, The Lady Wore Black, Consistency, Tower.

I've been looking for Osiris.

I remember Fantality's beat and dancing to it at middle school dances in 1978 -1979. Thanks for finally putting lesser known bands on iTunes.

The only downfall is that I-Tunes did not digitize or remaster this item for CD quality sound.
