EARLY AFRICAN AND TOWNSHIP MUSIC

Greg brings out the Sun with a selection of 78s from the Continent of Africa and beyond featuring an amazing selection of Township South African 78s. These are largely from a goldmine find of MINT discs uncovered by Judd Kirkel Welwitch and Neil Starr deep in the South African Bush and bought over to the UK at great expense.

This DJ session only scratches the surface of the collection but features the likes of Miriam Makeba, Jacob and Elias Lerole, Spokes Mashiyane, Dorothy Masuka, Albert Ralunini, Zacks Nkosi and many many more. The 78s cover roughly a ten year period from about 1957 to 1967 (yes they were still making 78s in South Africa then) and amongst others features Kwelas, Sax Jives, Mbanga and some stunning vocal harmony group records.
