Hugh Masekela - Waiting For The Rain (Jive) 1985

This is Hugh Masekela's 2nd LP recorded in Botswana - close to his land South Africa but respecting the boycott of the apartheid regime. He's been waiting for the rain and for freedom in South Africa. The LP starts off with Fela Kuti's "Lady" and closes with "Zulu Wedding".

Ok. Enjoy!
