“Sishong Sa Melodi” by Various Artists - album review

features in: (B-list) Album Chart of 1969(B-list) Album Chart of the 1960s

TJR says

12 vocal jive hits from recent single sides, themed around the South African girl groups of the day. My top track, “Matlare” opens up side 2 of the compilation, and comes from the effortlessly cool Mahotella Queens. The girls must have cared for this one because, as historian Nick Lotay tells, they re-recorded it in 1988 (under the new title of “Mme Ngwana Walla”) for their album “Melodi Yalla”. Composer credits for this one go to acclaimed saxophonist Shadrack Piliso and producer Rupert Bopape. See notes for Nick's extensive overview.
