Bra Sello - Butterfly (1975)

It has been a while since we enjoyed some soul-filled looping bump-jive. This long-player has one 28"30' long rich and variously embellished track that stretches across both sides - swirling keyboards, Bra Sello's saxophone and flute, lead guitar, vocals, and walking bass-lines that meander mbaqanga-like around drums and rhythm guitar.

Produced by Cambridge Matiwane and recorded in 1975 on the Soweto label, this album is Selby "Sello" Mmutung's take on the soul-bump-jive genre just before it veered more towards disco. Bra Sello already features on Electric Jive in Siemon Allen's popular Disco Soul Jive compilation here; and Nick Lotay's posting of Mahlatini's 1978 mbaqanga offering, Kudala Besibiza here. Bra Sello also features on the highly popular Pull-Up compilation of 78rpm recordings, shared here.
