JOSEPH DEE - Lover's Wedding (1989)

Tusk TUSB3010
Producer: Joseph Dumako
Engineer: Lee 'Finger' Short
Recorded at: RPM Studios

 

Kroonstad-born Joseph Dumako was a prominent gospel composer and producer in the mid to late-80s, working with the Holy Spirits Choir and the Forever Mass Choir, among others. As a solo artist, he used the name Joseph Dee. Freaky kiddy-fiddler cover art aside, the best thing about this album is the synthesized take on our national anthem, then still a symbol of the struggle against apartheid.
