Keep on Bumping with the Syndicate (1975)

On this Soul 102 offering of suspected moonlighting musicians the sax player on the first track sounds like Mike Makhalemele. Following the first long and groovy first bump track, there is a dose of soul from the pen of Babsy Mlangeni. 'Movin out', written by Zane Cronje, Pacific Expresse's keyboard player and composer, moves deeper into funk territory with plenty of waa waa guitar. The fourth track (‘Safa Saphela’) is a bumping funky cover of Johnny Nash’s 1974 hit ‘The Look in Your Eyes’ – written by Emmanuel Rentzos.
