Second release for La Casa Tropical. In the early '80s, Mbaqanga stars The Soul Brothers formed a touring group first named Jaws after member Jaws Dlathu, later named Bayete with their first recording. After a failed debut, Bayete went into the studio with Jerry Mhlanga and Decibel Music, the English division of De La Music interested in capitalizing on disco. "Blue Monday" is a cheap sounding drinking song. "Open Your Heart (Vula)" has a natural feel reminiscent of the pre-MIDI, early '80s disco sound, perfectly blending synths and keyboards, funky guitar, and the amazing vocals of Jabu.
