Monty Ndimande’s solo debut as Saitana sees him coming out of the gate in 1976 with an impressive Afro, an embroidered dashiki, an amicable grin and a funky rock sound with lashings of folk, blues and soul. Produced by Ray Nkwe, whose JAS Pride label was undergoing a mid-70s boom, Baby Don’t Go celebrates the burgeoning disco scene and paints Soweto as a crucible of hip style and good vibes despite the anti-apartheid social and political unrest that was brewing. Restored from original master tapes, Saitana’s inspired debut returns to vinyl for the very first time.
