Awesome Tapes for Friends: Penny Penny- Yogo Yogo (199?)
"OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOYYYYYYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAA! This is Penny Penny-- Second time around again! Hahahahahahahahahaha..."
So begins Penny Penny's second effort, Yogo Yogo. All the elements of his previous masterpiece, Shaka Bundu, are here in the exact same form. For all effects and purposes, this is the same album, but for those of you who swung deep on Shaka Bundu, that should be welcome news. As Awesome Tapes puts it, "This shit is pretty much game over as far as South African dance-pop from the '90s goes."
This was originally posted at Awesome Tapes From Africa, of course, but some friends of mine couldn't manage the link there for some reason. For their benefit, for their friendship, I post these mammoth jams here. Anyone who can hack it ought to go raid Awesome Tapes and get the shit from the source. There is great wealth there.
