Wednesday Morning Music: Mahotella Queens’ “Thoko” (and an AMAZING free South African jive comp)

This is the Mahotella Queens first single from ‘64 on the Motella label and it has never been released in digital format. Now you can grab it and 29 other rare South African jive tracks for free, courtesy of collector Nick Lotay, via the phenomenal music blog matsuli music. About 3/4 of this amazing collection of hard-to-find recordings titled “Mavuthela - The Sound of the Sixties” has never been released on CD and some of them were lovingly culled from original 78 shellac discs. If you are a fan of any of the Soweto comps (notably The Indestructible Beat of Soweto) like I am or Paul Simon’s Graceland, you need to grab this now (matsuli expires downloads after an undisclosed period of time). Make sure you check out Nick’s extensive “liner notes” while you’re there. Enjoy.
