PERCY KAY - Don't Drink And Drive (1988)

Reamusic, RML(E)2018
Producer: Enoch Nondala
Engineer: Jan Smit

Following on from Come Down (1986) and Phehla (1987), this disc catches soul brother Percy Kay at his very best, with stinging synthwork on funky R&B-inspired grooves. Similar to the more successful Pat Shange, Kay's lyrics ranged from the domestic ('Cassanova', 'Love Affair') to more pressing social issues ('Don't Drink & Drive' and 'Final Notice').
