Vukani mawethu! This is AFROSYNTH, the realest African selection . . .

This festive season we bring you LAPPASIDE, JOYCE, the legendary RICHARD JON SMITH, SHADIII, AFRICAN IMAGE, Zulu grooves from LINGANISA NABAFANE BEJUBANE and THISA, xmas synths by BONNY, something different from THE SOFT SHOES, a 1985 tribute album to DESMOND TUTU and a synth-packed gospel compilation.

Last month we checked out LORRAINE STAPLE, RUFARO, RONNIE MARTIN, HARRY MOYAGA, THE YOUNG STARS, and UMSALOFU NAMAVIZITHA.

Bless up!

REBECCA - Saturday Nite (1991)

Family/CCP/EMI, FLY(V)554   
Producer: Sizwe Zako   
Engineer: Marvin Moses  


To appeal to as wide an audience as possible, and continuing the successful formula of 1989's Thank You Very Much, side A of Saturday Nite sees Reebs sing her heart out on bubblegum tracks like 'Lazy One' and 'Dlala Mntwana', while side B is more Sunday morning - gospel numbers like those that would bring her greater fame in subsequent years.
