GABRIEL MAYA - To Me You Are Everything (1984)

Hope Records, 12HOP(C)107
Producer: Koloi Sabata Lebona
Engineer: Andre Herbst


Early 80s funk inspired by the likes of Kool & The Gang and Earth, Wind & Fire rather than any local influences - similar to Melvyn Matthews and Neville Nash. Both 'To Me You Are Everything' and 'Me Oh My' are catchy, uplifting disco tunes meant to take listeners far, far away from the realities of the day.
