NOTES

 

This single features the Malombo Jazz Makers with two other additional performers—one on sax.

The line-up of the group at this point included Abbey Cindi, Julian Bahule and Lucky Ranku.

Their first LP as the Malombo Jazz Men included guitarist Phillip Tabane and was recorded after they won first prize at the 1964 Castle Lager Jazz Festival. When Tabane left the group, Ranku joined on guitar and they recorded Malompo Jazz with Hilda Tloubatla on vocals. Their follow-up album Volume 2, came out three years later on the Continental label. This single was recorded in 1968 between the two LPs.

Bahule and Ranku would later go on to form the London-based group in exile, Jabula.
