For this '81 release, Bra Hugh summoned all the resources made available to him after being in the the US for over a decade already. Top US musos Eric Gale (electric guitar), Rene Mclean (sax and flute), Charles ‘Poogie’ Bell (drums) and Russel Blake (electric bass) joined forces with promiment SA exiles Hotep Cecil Barnard (later Hotep Idris Galeta) on keyboards, Victor Mhleli Ntoni (bass, guitar, vocals) and Thembi Mtshali (vocals), as well as African stars like Aderemi Kabaka on Nigerian Talking Drum, drums and percussion.
