Full of wonderful imagery, this world-music classic should be in all collections.
An album of mythic proportions

"I first encountered Johnny Clegg in 1988 via Jimmy Buffet's album, "Hot Water" in which he covers a Clegg tune "Great Heart." I immediately bought the first Clegg album I could find, Shadow man, and it was the single best musical purchase I've ever made. The music is intoxicating, the rhythms are addictive, and the depth and breadth of emotion is startling. He speaks of things that most Americans take for granted such as freedom, human rights, and oppression. But his views on all things are both sublime and poetic. This album not only shocked me in its musical quality and originality, it moved my soul (and feet!) How some people can go through life without knowing Johnny Clegg is a mystery to me. Buy it now, enjoy it forever."
One of the most overlooked bands in the world

"I have the complete Johnny Clegg collection dating back to when it was Jaluka. Shadow Man has my favorite song, "Take my Heart Away." The blending of English and Zulu has kept me loving this music for over twenty years. There is not a bad CD or album they don't have and deserve much more radio play than they get. Come on, Johnny, give the fans more!"
