One of the world's finest and most distinctive horn players, Hugh Masekela built up a dedicated global following thanks to his unique blend of jazz and South African styles. The albums that Masekela recorded in this period, from 1966 to 1976, were impressively varied. He was already a fine horn player and powerful singer, and his songs ranged from exquisite to angry and experimental. It may seen extraordinary that these tracks have been allowed to disappear, but this remarkable 7LP box set helps to put that right. Compiled by Hugh and his friend and producer Stewart Levine, many of these tracks have been unavailable on vinyl for decades.
