CLB - Never Gonna Give It Up (1991)

BK/Tusk, BKH6003  
Producer: CLB 
Engineer: Bruce Williams         
Recorded at: Shandel Studios 


Top quality disco grooves from the early 90s. Powerful vocals reminiscent of William Mthethwa, Sox or Vusi Shange, piercing synths, uplifting backing vocals, slick new school production and some deep pre-kwaito grooves on tracks like 'Shayi'skuta'. Other titles like 'Feels Good' and 'Lollypop' affirm that bubblegum was still alive and well in the early 90s.
