DENIS YEKANI AND THE MOVEMENT - Save Your Last Dance For Me (1985)

Transistor/EMI, 12CBK(C)5018   
Producer: Sidwell Duda   
Engineers: Phil Audoire & Keith Forsyth       
Recorded at: Ovation & Delarey Studios


Monwabisi Denis Yekani would go on to form the massive pre-kwaito duo Monwa and Sun on the Cool Spot label. Before that he put out this sweet synth-soul maxi with The Movement. Produced by one Sidwell Duda, who helped launch the career of Sello 'Chicco' Twala that same year.

B-side 'Try Your Luck' is a great downtempo bubblegum love song:
"If you wanna try your luck, 
baby why don't you try me?
If you are looking for love, don't you look no further.
Don't regret the hard times you've had, now the search is over.
No more lonely nights from now on, now the search is over..."
