MOVEMENT IN THE CITY - Black Teardrops (1981)R380.00
1981 South African Soul-Funk-Jazz from the master tape vault of the As-Shams/The Sun label by the creator of the Black Disco albums. As underground jazz fermented in the social and political powder keg of early-80s South Africa, composer and bandleader Pops Mohamed retired the Black Disco moniker in favour of Movement in the City.
The group's second offering under this new name yielded what has become one of the most sought-after releases from As-Shams by way of Black Teardrops, a singular blend of down-tempo and atmospheric South African rare groove featuring Dollar Brand saxophonist Basil "Manenberg" Coetzee and bass wizard Sipho Gumede. Reissued in an edition of 500 vinyl LP, putting the album back in print for the first time in 40 years.
Edition of 500 with 350gsm reverse board printed jacket. Atmospheric down-tempo South African Soul-Funk-Jazz first issued by As-Shams/The Sun in 1981.
