Budget priced collection of tracks from the groundbreaking recordings of Johnny Clegg and Savuka, the band he started after the breakup of Juluka. He carried on his premise of fusing Zulu sounds with Western music and ended up spearheading the popularity of "World" music to Western audiences. Includes a remake of his best known hit "Scatterlings Of Africa", "Third World Child", "Are You Ready?", "Berlin Wall" and many more.

"Pioneering a unique movement in music, blending zulu and white South African sound, at the height of a system which attempted to keep all the various sub-cultures seperated, this album helped Johnny Clegg and band break through to some degree in the states. Clegg is a household name in many parts of Europe, and of course SA, where he did much more than has yet been fully appreciated, to break down cultural barriers.
CD contains some really great songs like: " Scatterlings"; "Digging For Some Words" & "Kwela Man".
"Digging For Some Words" and "Umbaquanga Music" although worthy of it have not yet been included in any Best of's, or Compilations, and as such are only found on this album...well...
Anyway I'm horrified to see that this album is considered so rare in the USA, when you can purchase the South African version really cheaply.
There, "Scatterlings" has one track diffence with the American version, it does not contain "Umbaqunga Music" (an all-Zulu version was released in SA), instead it contains a different track called "Mad Dog"(not on the US vesion). Another cd : " International Tracks" does contain "Umbaqunga" plus others like "Kilamanjaro" and "Fever" some of Juluka's best upbeat stuff. Both cd's can be purchased very, very cheaply. So do a little searching dude...
Don't buy DVD's from SA,different TV system(PAL)."
Great CD but....

"This is a great CD but, be warned that the songs listed above ARE NOT the ones on this CD. The tracks listed above are from the Juluka CD "Scatterlings"(Johnny Clegg was a member of Juluka).
I was very surprised when I received this as I was looking a replacement for my album. I informed Amazon, they offered a refund (I refused as I do like the tracks), but they have not yet updated their site.
The actual tracks on this CD:
Scatterlings of Africa
African Shadow Man
Third World Child
Are You Ready?
Dance Across the Centuries
Don't Walk Away
I Call Your Name
Ring on Her Finger
Talk to the People
Update: It looks like Amazon has corrected the song titles for this CD. Good job (again) Amazon!
Again, still a great CD...it's just so...how do I describe it...it just makes me happy when I hear it. If you haven't yet, try it!"

"The first reviewer is correct; the songs on this CD are not those listed by Amazon. But I kept the CD anyway, because there are some very good songs on it."
