Excellent compendium of Masekela's work, with re'recordings of some of his biggest tunes in their original arrangements, which makes the sound much more contemporary. This is especially so with Grazin' In the Grass. But the best tunes are the beautiful Caiphus Semenya tune, ''Ziph'inkomo'', the mournful ''Mama'', and the new recordings of ''Don't Go Lose it Baby'' and ''Colonial Man (Vasco DaGama) are just as good, if not better, than its original. Might've included ''U-Dwi'', from Techno-Bush, and there's nothing from the seemingly lost mid-1980s album Waiting for the Rain. If you want to hear the premier South African artist at his best, this is the CD to get.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
