The Movers - Kansas City (Soundway Records)

With 'Kansas City', Soundway Records signs for the reissue of an almost unfindable piece of South African vinyl from 1979. The Movers were founded in Alexandra, a township near Johannesburg, in the late nineteen sixties, and rose to fame with their mix of disco and funk with elements from marabi jazz and township jive or jaiva. The track list of 'Kansas City' may only count 6 songs, they're all disco gems, and even though at the time title track 'Kansas City' landed the band a big hit, we were more taken with instrumentals like 'Shanana', 'Beat' or 'Take It'. Disco fever South-African style!
