Catalog no.: MRBLP0000225

Item ID: 502820

Official replica reissue of a South African jazz-funk rarity from Teaspoon & The Waves. Released in 1977 on Soul Jazz Pop, a subsidiary label of Mavuthela Music Company/Gallo, Teaspoon & The Waves' self-titled album is an absolute masterpiece. Best known for the song 'Oh Yeh Soweto', which is an astonishing adaptation of Lamont Dozier's anthem 'Going Back To My Roots', this track has become a contemporary underground club classic in recent times and has been featured in sets from a cross-section of DJs. With such a massive calling card song, it could be easy to write off the album as a typical one-tracker (like so many records often are), but that is a long way from the truth. 'Saturday Express' is a jazz-funk/disco stomper which will soon be lighting up dancefloors again. 'Wind And Fire' is true Afro-jazz-funk excellence, with great spacey synths and reggae-inspired guitar grooves riding throughout. The opener, 'Friday Night', also has a slightly reggae-tinged tropical groove, whilst 'Got Me Tight' finishes off the session with a feel-good jazz-funk workout that features cool, quirky, Patrick Adams-esque synths.

Also available: TEASPOON & THE WAVES (CD).
