MR MOVE - Magic Lady of Love (1986)

Quavers/Soltone/EMI, QUAL(O)002   
Producers: Tony Rudner & Ferdi Brendgen   
Engineer: Ferdi Brendgen   

Four-track album from the Soltone label (Lunga, Thembi Mtshali). Proof that you can't judge a record by it's cover, Mr Move didn't make much of a splash at the time and comes off like a second-rate Neville Nash or Melvyn Matthews. Some funky synths (especially on 'Love Must Stay'), but mostly uninspired and repetitive - you just can't manufacture soul.
