Thomas Mapfumo & the Blacks Unlimited
Varombo Kuvarombo, Gramma 1989

Thomas Mapfumo, voorkant

Thomas Mapfumo, label

Eerlijk gezegd dacht ik dat ik deze al eens pepost had maar
kennelijk heb ik me daarin vergist. Toen ik Rik’s verhaal gisteren
las ben ik de platenkast in gedoken en vond er nog enkele die
jullie nog niet bereikt hadden. Thomas Mapfumo en zijn Blacks
unlimited hebben er nog al een paar geproduceerd dus er een
missen was niet heel moeilijk. Deze is dus voor jou Rik maar
de rest van de wereld mag hem ook beluisteren hoor. Voor
de liefhebbers wacht er nog wel eentje dus laat maar horen.

It’s been a while and to be honest I thought it had been posted
already somewhere in the past. It seems it hadn’t however so
here it is today. Thomas Mapfumo and his Blacks Unlimited
made quite a few records so it wasn’t difficult to miss one.
When I read Rik’s story yesterday I went for a quick search
in the record cupboard and found a few left forgotten.
This one is for you Rik, any one else can down it as well
of course. For lovers of the genre there should be
another so just let me know okay..

    Thanks is even a gramma pressing. .Especially shabeen a song about men spending time ( and money ) with vasikana va sports (‘sport’girrls)in illegal beerhalls. Is dynamite.

    This is a wonderful upload, and thank you. I have 7 of his LPs, a couple of EPs and a few singles, but still this LP is largely unknown to me. It’s currently playing to my colleagues at work, for their education and entertainment.
