B.T.R.5 – Come On Dance (1988)

Emhlangeni / Teal, CEL 557
Producers: Mzi & Hansford Mthembu


Great album from little known and mysteriously monikered trio B.T.R. 5. 'Back from the Mountains' is an instant classic - similar to Sox, it covers the rural-urban divide and migrant labour issues with synth-infused disco-funk and a radical "we are happy today!" vocal chorus. Other titles include 'Don’t Leave Me Baby', 'Come On Baby I Need You' and
'There Comes A Time'.
