TOM DOLLAR - Without You (1987)
Producer: Peter Moticoe
Engineers: Fernando Perdigao & Humphrey Mabote
Recorded at: Powerhouse & Gallo Studios
Stimela-infuenced Afro-soul by Tom Chiloane, co-written by the prolific Peter Moticoe. Featuring revered bluesman Larry Amos on guitars and backing vocals by the likes of Deborah Fraser and Joy White. Joey Mabe (part of the Makgona Tsohle Band that backed Mahlathini and the Mahotella Queens) plays piano, strings and bass, with bass synths and DX7 by Kokotile Rakhetla and extra synths by Enos Lubisi. It all goes down smooth but lacks the hooks that make a hit.
