1 Thomas Mapfumo and the Acid Band. Thomas Mapfumo & The Blacks Unlimited. Compilation appearances. Recorded at Shed Studios Harare, by engineer Benny Miller, Mapfumo released the album Corruption in 1989. It criticised Mugabe and his government, with which Mapfumo was becoming more and more disillusioned. Mugabe wasn't happy with Mapfumo, either, and Mapfumo became the target of government harassment. Mapfumo was accused of being involved with a stolen-car ring. Things got uncomfortable enough that Mapfumo moved to Eugene, Oregon in the late 1990s. Roots Chimurenga (1996, Chimurenga Music).

On behalf of Thomas Mapfumo and the Blacks Unlimited, &Chimurenga Music Company I wish to officially announce that Dr Thomas Tafirenyika Mukanya Mapfumo will be performing in Zimbabwe on the 28th of April 2018 in Harare. We are excited that Mukanya will be performing in Zimbabwe after more than a decade's absence. On his behalf and CMC I will be giving you updates with regards to Mukanya's Welcome Back Bira. For and on behalf of Thomas Mapfumo. Blessing Vava Publicist.

And Mapfumo's falsetto singing in the chorus of "Nherera" is simply heavenly, worth the entire album by itself. Besides the band as a whole, guitarist Joshua Dube stands out as a star of this recording. He truly captures the spirit of both Jonah Sithole and Eprhaim Karimaura, who both buoyed the Blacks Unlimited over long periods of time. Dube's sparkling yet mellow tone and instinctive sense of the appropriate thing to play set him apart and elevate the music to its status as one in a long line of classic Mapfumo releases.
