Great great album & one of my favourite artists. But this entire album is rooted in various African musical heritage rather than Australian Aborigine.
I love how it doesn't matter what sound Rudd takes on during the course of any album, what influence, or how "big" a sound it is, he always retains that pure intimacy throughout his music. I think that's what really gets me, it draws you in in a big way.
Also, for all you roots music fans, Andile Nqubezelo was the drummer for the late Lucky Dube's band. Pretty awesome.
This album is so emotionally charged, with songs like "Love Comes & Goes" about his broken marriage that left him devastated & almost quitting music forever....
Thanks for the ten cents about African sounds. Not too familiar with Aboriginal music. I appreciate the heads up.
