V.A. Not Just Mandela (1986)

Thanks to BarrieB for donating this rip and scan which this re-up is built around.

Not Just Mandela is a 1986 anti-apartheid benefit L.P. on Davy's Lamp Records that features a rip-roarin' rarity called "Africa" by a Billy Bragg/Neurotics alliance as well as some good hard-to-find tracks by The Housemartins, The Internationalists and Attila The Stockbroker.It's another in a line of politically-inspired British compilations of the eighties we've discussed HERE and HERE.
