THE SENSATIONS - Sensation (1987)

Smyle/EMI, SMYM(C)1002   
Producers: Isabel Maseko & Gesdes Chessman
Engineer: Colin Smith       


Debut album from six-man bubblegum band with nicknames like 'Zero', 'Amigo' and 'Majestic'. Tight, tasteful grooves with some incredible keyboard work, along the lines of Ashiko or Zasha. On the whole a classier effort than the 1988 follow-up Chapter 2.
