SOUND PROOF - The Greatest Hits Vol. 2 (1980)

Atlantic City/Tela/Gallo, BL255
Producer: David Thekwane

Pre-bubblegum soul produced by the influential David Thekwane (Boyoyo Boys, The Movers), who shares song-writing credits with Jabu Sibumbe (Stimela) and P. Ndlovu. Full of intricate organ grooves and powerful vocals, the band successfully fused marabi with Motown, laying the foundation for the disco acts that would emerge a few years later.
