London Is The Place For Me
4: African Dreams And The Piccadilly High Life

HONEST JON'S RECORDS

Calypso, kwela, highlife and bebop, a little rock n roll and an Indian mambo, a shango hymn, some Sun Ra-style cha cha cha. A lake in a Johannesburg zoo, a Chinese on the Harrow Road; astronauts and prostitutes, landlords, streetfighters and cricketers.

'As well as the appeal of this little-known music inventive, precocious and fluent by turns there's the pleasure of discovering the rich, frequently moving histories of the players, thanks to the exceptional sleevenotes... CD Of The Week' (The Observer).
'... matches the superlative standard of its predecessors' (Independent On Sunday).

The music and notes are presented alongside rare artist photographs by Val Wilmer.
