Album Review
Reviewed 2003-11-17 
A wonderful singer from South Africa w/a powerful, passionate voice. Blend of South African rhythms w/folk, rock, jazz, and even reggae. But it’s his multi-octave range that makes this worth playing.

1. Uptempo w/soaring vox/flute/guitar/perc..
*2. Sweet chorus in an updated version of a trad. folk song.
*3. A capella intro, English lyrics. Mid-tempo & catchy.
4. Anti-apartheid anthem. Big chorus/band backing vocals.
5. A relaxed song of comfort & hope.
*6. Great vocal harmonies, an anti-apartheid poem.
7. Midtempo folk song w/guitars/vox/percussion.
*8. Great vocals/guitar. Midtempo song about family.
9. Slower w/sweet vocals. Chorus picks thing up near the end.
10. Relaxed South African folk w/some nice percussion/vocals.
11. Midtempo ballad. Nice guitars.
*12. Nice organ work/chorus/horns. Kinda funky.
13. Uptempo w/a reggae influence. Big horns.
14. Warm, sweet vocals in a prayer for peace.
