AllMusic Review by

These recordings are largely in Afro-funk style, though with heavy township infusions in places, from the 1960s and 1970s, including his massive hit, "Grazin' in the Grass." As a jazz rather than a roots mbaqanga player, Masekela was a natural for this stuff, and (some studio trickery aside) it still stands tall and powerful. The notes are long in Masekela quotes, short on biography, non-existent on personnels.
