BIG ELEPHANT - Africa (1990)

Soul Brothers Productions, MXH 13
Producer: Mqothuka E. Mkhize
Engineer: David Moloele
Recored at: Triple Six Studio, Soweto


Great album on Soul Brothers label. Lucky-influenced, keyboard-heavy afro-reggae, but with vocals bearing an even closer resemblance to Peter Tosh. Uplifiting, socially conscious lyrics, with obvious gospel and mbaqanga touches. Highlights include the easy skanking of "Money Lover":
"Hold on money lover, you have no power..."

Side A:
1. Hand of God
2. Africa
3. Money Lover

Side B:
1. Our Father
2. Lady
3. Hand in Hand
