Complete your Hugh Masekela & The Union Of South Africa collection. This record has a totally different tracklisting. Firstly it is a compilation of the Union Of South Africa and Reconstruction records and the tracklisting scrambled very different.

Hugh Masekela & the Union of South Africa is an inspired mix of soul, highlife, and even New Orleans jazz. This works excellently on the old-fashioned "Goin' Back to New Orleans" and the fast-moving "Ade" and "Dyambo" where horn lines, call-and-response singing, and funky guitars, together with African rhythms, create furious dance music. But some of the slower numbers seem to be left without direction, a fact that is only partly covered by Masekela's trumpet playing

By the early seventies, Masekela had already scored a hit with "Grazing in the Grass" and was turning his attention to his geographic roots, the South African horn jive dubbed "township bo. This album is simply unsurpassed in its musicianship, and is also a remarkable anti-apartheid statement, coming a full decade or so before it was brought to mainstream America's attention. Of special note here is the soulful "To Get ! Ourselves Together", along with beautiful poly-rhythms in "Ade" and "Johannesburg Hi-Lite Jive. Masekela fans absolutely must have this album; it's tight, inside jazz. Don't expect anything other than quick, major chord progressions and little self-indulgence. Outside" purists might want to stay away, but only if they want to leave a brilliant album in quiet, unadulterated obscurity. download (mp3 @256 kbs)
