Album recording at Maseru Holiday Inn Theatre before a small invited audience on a Tascam 8-track through a Raindirk mini mixer. All mics and monitors used were Electro-Voice. The recording was totally unrehearsed and is a genuine “live” sound.

Recording team: Prosound South Africa (Terry Acres, Simon Oates & Tony Oates)
Remix and production: Greg Cutlet and Terry Acres at Satbel Studio.

A special thanks to ‘Blowie’ Moloi and his love of music.
