World Used - LP ST 17112 EMI
1984 US Original With Gold Promo Stamp On Front Cover. Vinyl Appears Glossy, Unplayed. “Looking Back At South Africa's Post-Punk Musical Landscape Of The 1980s, One Is Tempted To Casually Dismiss The Decade As A Bizarre And Often Unpalatable Period Because Of The Often Intensely Disturbing Sociopolitical Undertow. Out Of These Uneasy And Often Dim Times, However, Sprang Some Of The Most Compelling, Original And Enduringly Evocative And Thought-Provoking Contemporary Music To Have Been Conceived In South Africa. Some Of This Alluring Music Is Encapsulated Here In Via Afrika's Eponymous Debut Album Of 1983. René, Now Living Again In Her Native Cape Town Since The Demise Of Via Afrika, Recalls The Band's Genesis And Early Development: "Via Afrika Erupted On To The South African Music Scene In The Early 1980s. Looking Back, I Still Believe That Via Afrika's Music Was Conceived By Some Of South Africa's Most Creative And Underestimated Minds Of The Time. All Involved Were – And Still Are – Artists In Their Own Right. Via Afrika Was A Living Force That Encapsulated Sex, Politics, Magic And Imagination – A Freedom Of Expression That Was Us. We Didn't Make Via Afrika Happen. It Happened To Us."“ - Michael Waddacor And René Veldsman, September 2000... more details
