✨✧ Mahotella QueensMeet The Mahotella Queens (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Motella/Umsakazo (UK), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The earliest work we've ever seen from this legendary South African group – and music that's got a much rawer, more stripped-down vibe than the albums that made them famous in the 80s! These tracks are mostly just group vocals with a bit of percussion and guitar – billed as "zulu vocal jive" or "zulu vocal" on the back cover – and with a romping, joyous quality that resonates with some of the bigger South African stars who were getting some global exposure in the mid 60s – upbeat, lively, and really positive in spirit, despite the struggles taking place on the scene. Titles include "Dinaka", "Kuqale Bani", "Niyi Gcine", "Inxeba Lendoda", "Izinyoni", "We Boy", "Umoya", and "Elidlubedu". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 300 – on heavyweight vinyl!)

✨✧ Makgona Tsohle BandMakgona Tsohle Reggi (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Inkonkoni/Umsakazo (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A really sweet little record from the South African scene – one that mixes together elements of American instrumental soul with Jamaican-influenced rhythms – but with a vibe that's a bit unlike anything else we can think of! The music here is credited to the Makgona Tsohle Band, but the back cover also lists The Big Bag Boys, Sha Sha Boy, and Marks Maknwane & His Alto Sax – possibly variations on the same group, or maybe not. We can tell you that the work is all instrumental, heavy on sweet guitar lines that riff along with the rhythms – sometimes with these nicely offbeat organ lines, other times with some strong solos on alto or tenor saxophone! Titles include "Marks Special No 2", "Bajiskise Bops", "Paul Reggi", "Soul Track", "Inkalakatha", "Shazulu Marks No 3", and "Isihlahla Samabhungu". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 400!)
