Thomas Mapfumo & the Blacks Unlimited
Chimurenga for Justice
Rough Trade 1985


Anonymous asked me to post Chimurenga for Justice and
it just so happens it was still waiting to find its way to you.
We had some nine of his albums so far, Thomas’ Mapfumo
and his Blacks Unlimited have a sound like not many others.
This album is on the English Rough Trade label and from ’85.

  1. thanks you so much you have no idea how much I’ve looked for this album. If you can upload Zimbabwe Mozambique and Hondo you’d have made my 2018 have a happy ending

  2. Thanks a lot for the chimurenga, and what great timing!
    It just so happens I came back yesterday from Leicester UK where I finally saw a Thomas Mapfumo gig. Despite the fact that the sound was terrible and the band had to cut short (they came on at 0230 and had to stop at 4am!) the magnificent vibes were all there.
    Big up Dr Mapfumo!

  3. Thanks. I have this album on CD, but the sound quality is pretty bad, so I’m grateful to have a much much better sounding version.
