PETER PADI - Don't Fight With Me (1987)

Smyle/EMI, 12SMYM(C)1001   
Producers: Isabel Maseko & Colin Smith  
Engineer: Colin Smith

New school single along the lines of MarcAlex, Izzyboy Masedi and others. This ambitiously titled 'Super Triple Maxi' Includes a longer 'international dance mix' and a more interesting, experimental studio mash-up 'Somethings Got To Change'. Though Padi did not find lasting success in the industry, he was a few years ahead of his time - and scores bonus points for rhyming "baby" with "don’t mean maybe".
