MANGO GROOVE - The Essential [Very Best Of 2CD Set Collection] south african jive dance pop 80s 90s

Mango Groove is an 11-piece South African Afropop band
whose music fuses marabi, kwela, and dance pop music.
During the 1980s and 1990s, Mango Groove was one of only two popular South African music groups with both black and white band-members (the other one Juluka, fronted by Johnny Clegg and Sipho Mchunu, debuted in 1976).

Mango Groove had at least 12 number-one hits in South Africa, and are the only band in South Africa's history with an album that remained in a sales chart for more than a year. They have received nearly every South African music award and video award, as well as a number of awards internationally.

In 1992, Mango Groove performed, via satellite uplink, for the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert in London, to an audience estimated at one billion people.[1] They previously performed at the Montreux Jazz Festival,[2] and the Rock Against Racism concert in Paris.[3] They were the only African band invited to perform at the 1997 Celebrate Hong Kong Reunification concert.

Sylvester - The 12 x 12 Collection (Remix Album) 80s hi-nrg disco [megatone records]

Sylvester James, Jr. (September 6, 1947 – December 16, 1988), better known as Sylvester, was an American disco and soul singer-songwriter. Known for his flamboyant and androgynous appearance, he was often described as a drag queen, although he repeatedly rejected such a description. Responsible for a string of hit singles in the late 1970s, Sylvester became known in the United States under the moniker of the "Queen of Disco."
The feature-length documentary Sylvester: Mighty Real will bring back to life the pioneering performer John Waters calls a combination of "Billie Holiday and Diana Ross on LSD." Sylvester began as a child gospel singer and sashayed past barriers of race and sexual identity to become the definitive anthemist of disco and dance soul. With a vibrant falsetto and genderbending persona, he redefined what it means—on stage and in life—to be "mighty real." This documentary will restore to the spotlight a pivotal performer whose music defined an era and whose influence is still felt by dozens of current vocalists.
