    This one features another great 5.1 Surround Sound Mix by Martin Walters. If you liked the first Ladysmith Black Mambazo album, this will be a must have.

    Very good album and mix - my fave Ladysmith in surround. Once again, tho, it's mastered a bit loud for a vocal recording - my only complaint.

    Agreed, Martin's 5.1 Surround Sound mixes are really excellent.

    Well, to me this is simply the best sounding disc I own. The sonics and the 5.1-mix does not get any better than this, according to my preferences. The voices jump out of all the speakers in a way that floors me completely.

    I really like the music as well.

    sonics 10
    5.1-mix 10
    content 8

    Overall I give a 9.

    If you like this one, be sure to get the earlier Ladysmith Black Mambazo SACD as well. Another amazing SACD Surround Sound mix there as well !

    This is a superb SACD. Beautiful a cappella vocals with a demo quality surround mix. For fans of "Graceland" there are new versions of their 2 biggest contributions to that LP plus a host of special guests (vocal and instrumental) provide some nice variety to the arrangements. A 10 for me.
