"This is truly an amazing compilation. Juluka's(Johnny Clegg and Sipho Mchunu) first album : "Universal Men" has to have been a defining moment in the history of world music. They successfully blended two totally different languages and music styles into a unique sound, living within a system that struggled to keep cultures separated, in Apartheid South Africa.
They suffered bannings and censorship,their music spread by word of mouth and live performance(the regime controlled all radio and TV), breaking through with their second album "African Litany".
Here's an opportunity to buy an album which contains some(ONLY SOME) of the best of : "Universal Men", "African Litany", "Ubuhle Bemvelo", "Work For All", "Scatterlings" and others. Also check out Savuka(a continuation of Juluka sound), Cleggs subsequent band, and his solo album : "New World Survivor", as well as unique, pioneer SA groups : "Amampondo" and " Tananas".
Want all to know it is ludicrous that it is so hard to find Juluka cd's in the USA, when they are so easily and cheaply available from South Africa and Europe(not as cheap as SA). Do yourself a favour, do some surfing and get what you need brand new !"
