Soweto Soul Music

I've been getting some requests for pics and clips lately so I decided to post this one here. Nzimande Soweto Soul Music by The Inne Lawes. Recorded and released 1969 in South Africa by CBS. Since the day I found this copy about 12 years ago I have never seen one again. Not in real life and no google alert... hen's teeth!
I must admit that I have never heard anything like this south african version of instrumental soul before and after. Influences of Booker T, Mar Kays and Meters are evident, but they're managing to make it pretty unique... and that guy on the organ really gives it a psychedelic touch in most of the tunes!

check it out here and don't dare to nag about the low bitrate. 
A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush...

Cheers, Basso
