Where were you in 1972? If you were listening to the radio, you would surely have heard "Pata Pata", the bouncy number which carried Miriam Makeba's voice all round the world. So it's great to have it back as the title track of Pata Pata, plus 10 other tracks from the original album.

These are triumphant times for the first lady of African music: she recently celebrated her 70th birthday by accepting the Swedish prize whose previous recipients have included Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen and Stevie Wonder. She spent 30 years in exile from her native land, and was re-exiled from the US during that time for her tireless campaign for racial equality; she has survived car crashes, a plane crash, cancer, four divorces and the deaths of her only child and grandson.

But since her return in 1990 her good works have redoubled; they include South African charities for Aids awareness and women's causes. Her art was always sweet and simple, no matter how urgent and combative her message: this CD has great charm. Most of the tracks are accompanied by a mélange of guitars and African instruments, over which her voice rides clear and clean, with just the occasional hint of vibrato. There are Cuban moments and pure Kwazulu moments, but it all hangs together in a seamlessly beguiling whole. --Michael Church

I am so sorry that I had no idea about Miriam Makeba's extraordinary talent until she died. An obituary in the Economist sent me to Amazon to buy this CD, and I was enthralled. She has the range and lush gorgeousness of Ella Fitzgerald, with an African energy (and ability to click!) all her own. I am staggered and delighted. Listen and be amazed.

This CD is a re-issue of an album released in 1972. Featuring Miriam's stunning voice singing the songs she is most famous internationally for, "Pata Pata", "Ring Bell, Ring Bell" and "click song number 1". A twelfth extra track, "Malayisha" unfortunately in mono, is the B side of the original Pata Pata single. Producer Jerry Ragovoy has done an excellent job in showing the scope of Miriam's repetoire, even penning two of the most stunning songs, "Ring Bell" and "What is Love?" to do so. Particularly if you have only heard Miriam's more recent recordings I exhort you to add this to your collection, and listen a younger but no less exquisite voice.

Great to listen to, or just as back ground music. Bought it after hearing the title track on radio, never having heard of her before; so didn't know what to expect. Not disappointed. Good variety, lovely voice, good songs.

Bought this as a present for my dad as I remember him talking about Miriam Makeba when I was growing up. It's a good compilation. Brings back good memories for us all.
