Review:This 34 track album double CD includes Ladysmith's pop collaborations - Dolly Parton, Des'ree, P.J Powers, Lou Rawls,and Lighthouse Family as well as "Diamonds On The Soles of Her Shoes" from Paul Simon's 1996 album "Graceland". Which is fine, for Ladysmith could sing the Johannesburg telephone directory and still sound great, but there are also 15 tracks here of timeless Zulu magic that make few concessions to the world of western pop. It's the perfect introduction to the music of Joseph Shabalala and his group - Songlines
