British Blues Rock at its best
LONG PLAYER was the second album by the British rock group Faces with Rod Stewart, Ronnie Lane and Ronnie Wood amongst its members. On a good day, Faces could wrestle the title of greatest rock & roll band away from the Rolling Stones.

A song of hope against a backdrop of social injustice
Hugh Masekela - who passed on Jan 23, 2018 - is an integral part of South African modern history, being part of the resistance against 'apartheid' oppression, the social issues he addressed in his music as well as being a larger-than-life figure. 'Stimela' is the track that Hugh Masekela will probably be best remembered for as it encompasses all of his work both lyrically and musically. Such is the significance of 'Stimela' as it addresses the theme of hope against a backdrop of social injustice, central to South African modern history, a history still marked by decades of 'apartheid'.
