Birmingham based singer C L Blast passed away almost 2 weeks ago ............

He made many great records down the years & luckily I own a copy of his rarest LP, the 'Made In Africa' album that was cut & only released in South Africa. His 1980 album 'I Wanna Get Down' sold really well in Sth Africa (making the charts there) & this prompted him to tour the country in 1981. While on his 3 month stay there, playing live gigs, he cut the 'African' album with local musicians. The resulting tracks aren't as brilliant as the best of his US recordings but the LP is still a must have IMHO.

Another day, another sad passing....I guess its inevitable but still disappointing.

CL was a great singer, who really deserved wider appreciation and success.
