PAT SHANGE - Undecided Divorce Case (198?)

Roy B/Dephon, RBL136
Producers: Rick Wolff & Pat Shange
Engineers: Richard Mitchell & Ralph Martin
Recorded at: EMI Powerhouse, Priority, RPM


Pat hit the right notes with his synthesized African grooves, danceable beats and clever lyrics to secure a loyal audience all over Africa. 'We're All The Same' sends a powerful anti-apartheid message, while 'Shayile' and 'African Lady' celebrate the good times. Other titles include 'The Payable Fine' and the hit 'Undecided Divorce Case'. 

"Special thanks to Ace Mbuyisa for his magic fingers on keyboards. Also I would like to take my hat off to the lovely ladies who sang with love - Stella Khumalo, Beulah Hashe, Deborah Fraser, Merilyn Nokwe and the late Jean Madubane (may you rest in peace)."
