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.
