Mango Groove is the self-titled debut album of Mango Groove, a South African pop fusion band whose sound is influenced by township music. Seven of the eleven songs on the album were released as singles. The album sold extremely well, breaking national sales records and maintaining a high rank in the radio charts for a year. The band dedicated the album to Mickey Vilakazi, a bandmate who died in June 1988.

Another Country is the third album by South African Afropop fusion band Mango Groove. It was released in 1993, near the end of the negotiations to end apartheid in South Africa. The album was released in South Africa on cassette and CD by One World Entertainment, an imprint of Tusk Music. Mango Groove recorded music videos for three songs from the album: "Another Country", "Nice to See You", and "Tropical Rain".

Mango Groove is an 11 piece Afropop group formed in Johannesburg, South Africa and fronted by lead singer Claire Johnston. While in her last year at school, Claire Johnston joined Mango Groove (founded in 1984 by John Leyden, who teamed up with Andy Craggs and ‘Big Voice Jack’ Lerole’). She quickly established herself as the face and voice of Mango Groove. For the next two decades, they had an enormous impact on the South African music scene.

Complete your Mango Groove collection. I question whether the US release on ATCO should be called a "reissue," since it is the first issue in that country. Reply Notify me Helpful.
