DENNIS & THE WHIZZ KIDS - Vuka Tsotsi (198?)

Roy B/Dephon RBL140   
Producers: Pat Shange & Rick Wolff         
Engineer: Rick Wolff                  
Recorded at: RPM Studios

This largely unknown act put out top-notch pantsula grooves on the influential Dephon label, produced and arranged by the one-and-only Pat Shange and his frequent collaborator Rick Wolff. Slick and catchy, along the lines of Volcano. Best tracks include ‘Manano (Please Come Back Home)’ and ‘Give It To Me (Hey Boy)’.
