Next Stop…Soweto Vol. 2: Soultown [coll] – [Strut]
This compilation represents the irrepressible spirit of bands who would not let apartheid silence them. I learned more from the liner notes than I did in school. Don???t let the upbeat rhythms and the colorful psychedelic packaging of this CD fool you–these songs make a political statement by their very existence. Never mind that they were relegated to backrooms often located in the midst of gang violence, these bands played on, regardless of the circumstances. Drop the laser anywhere.
