  • Standing In The Fire Of Love - Friends First

    5:19

    This is the fourth track from 'We See A New Africa':

    An album by Friends First, a band that I fell in love with as a child, I can remember hours of this cassette being played on trips to the beach. I've been looking for a digital form of it for years, so we recorded this off the cassette for the world to enjoy, and hopefully re-discover Friends First, a real inspiring group :D Enjoy.

    The cassette has this description printed on the front cover:

    This album has been born in a nucleus of established friendships as opposed to being an impersonal professional exercise. As best as we have been able, we have kept relationships primary, and trust that this will communicate through vinyl, and provoke you to see possibilities for interaction and reconciliation in South Africa. How wonderful for an ever-increasing network of God-inspired relationships to cause an atmosphere of trust and healing in this country - and then impact the onlooking nations. We trust that this album will help you visualise and work towards a new Africa.

  • Out of Town - Equinox

    9:07

    Camillo Lombard, Tich Jean Pierre, Lionel Beukes and Denver Furness play Equinox at Jean's Jazz Gallery, Bellville South. circa 1997. They were the backing band for a Sunday night performance of jazz standards by Esther Miller.

    The recording unfortunately was on a compact cassette, plus the mixing is iffy. Apologies for any wow/flutter. The beginning is softer but volume was boosted later on.

    From a heritage point of view, an important example of some of the early work done by popular band Out of Town.

    As they played to a very small but appreciative audience, it became quite clear that they were enjoying what they were doing much more than they usually did.

    The band's members all teach or taught at the Jazz Workshop in Cape Town, South Africa.

  • éVoid - Junk Jive

    éVoid was a popular 1980s afro rock/pop/jive/dance/punk band in South Africa.
    Their eponymous debut album was released in South Africa in 1983 resulting in major chart success to match their success as a live band.
    Originally formed in Brakpan in 1977 around core members and brothers Lucien and Erik Windrich (both born in the Netherlands in November 1958 and February 1960 respectively) and then known simply as Void, the group won their section of the 'East Rand Battle Of The Bands' in 1978.
    Adopting the name éVoid in 1982, the band would (complete with painted faces, tribal dances and jive rhythms - known as 'ethnotronics') rose in prominence and received increasing attention, thanks to their fantastic live performances and guerilla-style self-promotion as they moved from one rock venue to the next across the country. éVoid's most famous residence was surely that at the Chelsea Hotel in Hillbrow, Johannesburg, with dedicated fans (known as fadgets) in almost equally outrageous and colourful ethno-gypsy garb queueing for hundreds of metres.
    Early in 1983, drummer George Voros left for England, and Wayne Harker was hired. Soon afterwards, work on their eponymous debut album began at RPM Studios, Goud Street in downtown Johannesburg in April of that year.
    1985 saw éVoid and numerous other artists of the time attract more than 100,000 music fans to 'The Concert In The Park' in support of Operation Hunger at Johannesburg's Ellis Park Stadium. However, by then the band also felt that they had reached the pinnacle of their hopes in South Africa and the brothers left for the UK.
    Work on the duo's second album '…Here Comes The Rot!' was undertaken throughout most of 1986 and the album was released by WEA Records (South Africa) in December 1986 to coincide with éVoid's return to SA for a six-week nationwide tour - to mixed views and sentiments.
    A third album on cassette was released in 1993.
    In 2008, after a lengthy hiatus, the Windrich brothers released a new eVoid album 'Graffiti Lounge', with the album receiving positive reviews.

  • Canamii - Spiral - 1980

    4:02

    A fantastic song from an incredible album!!!
    Notes from the cd reissue (Fresh Music - South Africa)
    ''The name Canami was derived from the star signs of Phil Nel (Cancer) and Claire Whittaker (Gemini).

    Both Claire and Phil worked for EMI as engineers Claire being a tape mastering engineer and Phil being a studio engineer. Phil went on to become chief engineer of EMI (SA) and chief engineer at Downtown studios (Gallo Africa).

    Canimi Concept was inspired by Abby Road (EMI) engineer Allen Parsons (Allen Parson Project) where studio musicians were used instead of a dedicated band.

    Although not originally part of the initial concept Paul Woodley was asked to join the project because of he's jazz/rock influenced guitar playing as can be heard on the tracks Afrock, Phantom Players, And the Moon Be As Bright. Claire's vocal style was very much influenced by Annie Haslam from the band Renaissance. Claire also had very strong 70's folk influence in her vocal style.Phil's forte' was in programming synths such as the Synclavier, Fairlight, Jupiter 4, Korg, Moog, RMI and the ARP.

    Phil also has grade 8 classical piano (Royal Schools of Music) and he's major musical influence was Emerson, Lake and Palmer, especially ELP's LP release Tarkus as can be heard on the Canimi Concept tracks Toccata and Tri. Phil's other influences were Rick Wakeman, Yes and King Crimson along with the Russian classical composers such as Rimsky Korsakov, Mussorgsky and Khachaturian.
    Tim Kensella, a long time friend of both Phil and Claire was asked to do the vocals on the track Spiral. This track also features the RMI synth. Short of one track to complete the LP, Phil, Claire and Paul spent an entire night in EMI studios and wrote the track Children, using just guitar, a Jupiter 4 synth and the Dr Rhythm drum box.

    Claire remembers: In the bad old days of the 80's I was incredibly inspired by music -- writing lyrics, creating songs, my heroines were Annie Haslem and Kate Bush, I believed that lyrics, like poetry, told a story, more lofty than that of mere words. Music to me lifted me high above the normal realms of thought into a place where colour and light merged, this is the picture I aspired to create for the listeners of Canamii ... Phillip Nel, an incredibly accomplished keyboardist and I created many pieces -- only a select few -- where chosen for the album. He also taught me sound engineering and mastering of cassette tapes. He and I worked for EMI in those days. Paul a super guitarist brought a great sound to the mix and together, Canamii was born. Which actually came from Cancerian Phillip's star sign and Gemini -- which is my own star sign. Can-(a) -- mi (i) I loved the studios -- the soft lights, ambiance, plush carpets and incredible reproduction of sound. The control rooms were perfectly and scientifically balanced. A place where the softest or loudest notes were played back at you with clean clarity. I actually wished that I could have a sound system in exact replica built in my lounge.
    I loved the creation of the pieces which used to start with a simple rift which would just take on a life of it's own, almost a personality, music made me come alive -- I was never the same after that.

    Paul recalls: I met Philip through Claire, my sister in law. Phil had a home recording studio and he and Claire had formed an emotional and musical bond. Claire had mentioned to Phil that I played guitar. Philip invited me around to listen to their works. I was impressed and jumped at the opportunity to add my musical flavour to their creation. Phil got a job as an engineer with EMI in the Joburg city centre and was given free rein to record and experiment in order to grow his knowledge. We started the whole Canamii project from scratch in EMI'S Studio 1. We tackled the project with enthusiasm and spent almost every night and weekend recording. It was a great experience recording on a sophisticated desk and in a world class studio. We had no time and cost restraints which was a pleasure. The project took many months to complete. Several accomplished South African musos were involved in the project, Ashley Kelly bassist, Tony Moore drums, and a few more guys who's names have slipped my mind.

    We were delighted with the outcome of the album which brought a new flavour to South African music. Unfortunately we never got to perform live, but we all continued our musical careers separately thereafter. It was a great experience that I will not forget, my first recording which resulted in an incredible work of art.
    Missing Vinyl is a Greek Label and we ought many congratulations for this reissue!

    Thanks for visiting the channel.

  • Who is Dan Nnḓivhiseni Tshanḓa

    4:56

    “Dalom Music is hereby confirming the passing away of music maestro Dan Tshanda today. He suffered a heart failure earlier and Sandton Mediclinic where he was declared dead

    Dan Nnḓivhiseni Tshanḓa was born in Matangari Village, Venda in Limpopo . When he was young he played guitar for Elvis Mandidza’s Sibasa Pirates in the 80’s. Raised in Soweto, Dan Tshanda only attended school as far as Standard 4 due to lack of funds in the family.

    Dan got a job as a newspaper vendor for an Afrikaans newspaper, where his father worked as a sweeper. He also got the name Peacock because of the way he ran while distributing newspapers.

    His desire was to join the likes of Steve Kekana and Soul Brothers but due to his young age and poverty situation he could not fit in, and he gave up on the plan.While working as a taxi driver, he made a demo cassette, which was submitted to a record company, with his own group that he started called Flying Sounds which led to the release of their first album titled ‘MR TONY’ with Gallo Records in 1985.

    The album was not a success, but the late Hamilton Nzimande of Gallo Records give them a second chance to record another album called Peacock in 1986 .Mr Nzimande took Dan under his wing and taught him everything about music business.The late Ray Phiri of Stimela gave Dan the stage name Splash 1987 when he took then on tour to Botswana . Splash released classic albums such as ‘Peacock’ (1986), ‘Snake’ (1987) ‘Money’ (1988) ‘Tshokotshoko’ (1989) and many more albums.

    Botswana loved their music and after the tour Dan and his group where able to to go back to Botswana because of the support he got from the fans and the government of Botswana. Dan Tshanda’s Splash disco music has been one of the most successful genres since he first burst into the seen.

    1999 Dan left Gallo to start his own music company called Dalom Music Distributors, which saw the release of Makhirikhiri, the first album to be released under his own company. His music continued to find success out of South Africa than back at home.He toured Botswana and also donate to the less privileged. His music manage to find its way to places like Zimbabwe ,London, Japan and other parts of Europe danced to Splash.

    Even though most radios in South Africa stopped playing his music including media houses who didn’t even give him interviews splash music never stop growing. Its sad that South African youth of today dont know about him and his music.

  • Guelewar Band of Banjul African Malinké Music

    23:26

    From the Sama yaye demna n'darr (1979) LP
    Side A : Yaye boulma bayi / Sama yaye demna n'darr / Sunu maakaan

    Guelewar Band of Banjul has been further developing the afro-manding sound of Ifang Bondi during a short period in the late 1970s and early 1980s. With strong percussion, a psychedelic tinge, prominent keyboards and saxophones, Guelewar's music is an Aha-Erlebnis, but surprisingly enough, not a single album has been reissued on CD, whereas their LPs are sometimes offered at horrendous prices. Not much is written on the group except that the band leader was Laye N'gom, who was formerly with the Supreme Eagles which became later Super Alligators.
    Youssou N'Dour considers Guelewar as a main inspirational influence, partly because of the use of lyrics in a noble wolof as opposed to street wolof, and partly because Guelewar had resolutely moved forward from latin and highlife to an explosive mix of soul and funk with Senegambian rhythms such as Boogaraboo and Ndaga. Lead singer Moussa N'Gom has had a strong imprint on Guelewar's music with his expressive voice. He later left to join Omar Pene's Super Diamono before starting a solo career. Moussa also made a cassette with the Ensemble Lyrique Traditionnel du Senegal (1995) and he has recorded with Thione Seck. His current band is called le Groupe Talibe.

    Until quite recently, none of Orchestre Guelewar's albums have been released on CD, and only a few songs were available on compilations, such as « Warteef Jiggeen » on the first volume of the Golden Afrique compilation series, « Wallou! » on the African Pearls vol.4: The Teranga Spirit, and « Relen te contan » on the African Pearls Senegal 70 compilation.

    But with the current interest in afro-soul and afro-funk from the 1970s, a small label Teranga Beat has released live recordings, and in 2012 a compilation album was released carrying the title « Touki Ba Banjul: Acid Trip from Banjul to Dakar ».

  • Me playing my guitar - Graceland

    Graceland is a mansion on a 13.8-acre (5.6 ha) estate in Memphis, Tennessee that was owned by Elvis Presley

    Graceland is the seventh solo studio album by American singer-songwriter Paul Simon. Produced by Simon and Roy Halee, the album was released on August 25, 1986, by Warner Bros. Records. In the early 1980s, Simon's career hit a low point. Following a very successful but contentious reunion with former partner Art Garfunkel, Simon's marriage fell apart and his previous record, Hearts and Bones (1983), was a significant commercial disappointment. In 1984, after a period of depression, Simon became fascinated with a bootleg cassette of South African township music. He planned a trip to Johannesburg in the new year with Halee, where he spent two weeks recording with South African musicians.

    Recorded in 1985 and 1986, Graceland features an eclectic mixture of musical styles, including pop, rock, a cappella, zydeco, isicathamiya, and mbaqanga. Simon created new compositions inspired by the recordings made in Johannesburg, collaborating with both African and American artists. Simon faced controversy for seemingly breaking the cultural boycott imposed by the rest of the world against South Africa because of its policy of apartheid. In addition, some critics viewed Graceland as an exploitive appropriation of their culture.[citation needed] Following its completion, Simon toured alongside South African musicians, combining the music of Graceland and their own music.

    Despite the controversy, Graceland was a major commercial hit, becoming Simon's most successful studio album. His highest-charting effort in over a decade, Simon's return to the forefront of popular music was considered a remarkable comeback in a fickle music industry. It attracted excellent reviews from music critics, won the 1987 Grammy Award for Album of the Year, and is estimated to have sold up to 16 million copies worldwide. Graceland has frequently been called one of the best albums of the 1980s, and is present on lists of greatest albums created by numerous publications. It was added to the National Recording Registry in 2007, having been judged to meet the registry's admission criterion of being culturally, historically, or aesthetically important.

    Paul Simon visited Graceland in the early 80s and afterwards wrote a song which became the title track of his hit album Graceland.

    In 1995 I came back to south africa after I had been there for the first time in 1985 during apartheid. This time it was very positive impression. With the music from graceland on my cd- man (a cd device player and headphone) I walked around downtown Jo'burg on my own. The market place, the busstop, hillsbrow, the theatre etc..... more to come
