This was still missing from my Makeba collection. Big thanks! I've just posted many of her early albums and linked here from my discography:

There was a very old video of Makeba Singing Chove Chuva (from this album) on youtube, but sadly the user closed his account and i dont even know the username, so he took the video with him.

Anyways if you were kind enough to reupload this atleast i could hear the music. :D

Many thanks in advance.
