I Hate Telling A Lie 

Where Did We Go Wrong 

I Love You

The unique sounds of Ray Phiri's Stimela are showcased on this gem of a 12" EP from South Africa in 1986. Includes one track than was included in the excellent Crown Ruler comp a few years back - but all 4 cuts have got something

It was originally released only in South Africa on Gallo / CBS Records, although a 12" featuring the track 'I Hate Telling A Lie' was previously released on Plum Records in 1983. It has now become a sought-after item due to its addictive and original-sounding Balearic disco / cosmic boogie-esque nature.

Stimela were a popular and successful Mbaquanga / fusion outfit led by the guitarist, vocalist, songwriter, producer and arranger Ray Phiri; who was previously a member of the legendary band The Cannibals. The musicians would go on to gain global fame after featuring on Paul Simon's iconic 'Graceland' album and the mega tour that followed.

Regular price £12.99
