The original Indestructible Beat compilation, which inspired Paul Simon's Graceland s, was hailed as the most important record of the 1980's by US pop critic Robert Christgau.

"One of 85's most crucial records ... a brilliant compilation of South African music and an incisive reflection of life in the country's townships"
NME

"This one's going to be considered a classic."
