An Mbaqanga Treat
Matthew Watters | Kell's Restaurant & Bar, Mongouge | 09/14/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Soul Brothers had been producing hits in South Africa for twenty years before they brought out this album, and this shows in the measured composure of their sound. Their compositions are based on an infectious formula which they tend to stick to, but that doesn't take anything away from the appeal of the album. What stands out is the original use of the Hammond organ by Moses Ngwenya, and perhaps one of the mellowist horn sections on the continent (Thomas Phale & Javas Magubane). Mix these with a driving bass and rippling guitar lines to underpin the harmonious vocals and its easy to see why they're such an enduring favourite in the townships. Check out AMAPHUTHA (track 5), to sample the exquisite poise of this soulful group. And don't forget to heed the lyrics of UTSHWALA (TRACK 8):"Stop getting drunk because you mess around with other people's wives and get into trouble". Solid advice; solid music..."
