Pata Pata by Miriam Makeba
Released: Nov 1967
Label: Rhino/Warner Bros.
This album is a remarkable document of its time: released in 1967, it combines the joyous, border-crossing township pop of the international hit "Pata Pata" with syrupy balladry like "What Is Love" -- and serves up lots of other South African songs with a heaping helping of American funk. "Yetentu Tizaleny," "'Click Song Number 1" and "Jol' Inkomo" are all great.
