sacoolman: Brings back many,many great memories.Thanks Ipi Tombi.
sandall100: You are right this version is much better than the newer one. The vocals are clearer. I remember seeing your show in Glasgow, Scotland must have been around the 70s. It was the best music and visuals I have ever seen, very exciting!
Torsten Nielsen: Going back to Botswana next week .Arrived their first time back in 1973 and went to Joburg to see the musical .Bring tears to my eyes

Choonmaster71: Hello Friend,
Your music brought such joy to my heart as a teenager, I had never heard anything like it!! That was 20+ years ago and it still moves me like it did originally. Can't believe I have the chance to thank an original member of Ipi Tombi. Morgan, the joy you received to your heart after reading the comments posted is magnified ten thousand fold in the hearts of your listeners, can't thank you enough. Will definitely check out Zulu Spear. Thanks for the good times!!!

Carol Pearson: HI this is a great reminder for us as a family living in Scotland. Every year at the New year this album came out and we all would dance to it - had a pole and did the limbo! Our kids were all young then (now grown up) and they still put this on - it is a brilliant album. Lovely to hear that you are still in a band will check this out!! Thanks again for some lovely happy family parties here in Scotland. x

But lovely to know you are still performing. It is very special music. :)
