"Scatterlings of Africa", arguably the band's biggest hit (which would later be re-recorded to more international success by Juluka's successor band, Johnny Clegg & Savuka), is featured on this album, lending it part of its name. The song "Scatterlings of Africa" was also featured in the 1988 film Rain Man.
This is the track listing for the original South African album. When the album was released later in the US, Canada and Europe, the track "Umbaqanga Music" replaced "Mad Dog". (A version with both "Umbaqanga Music" and "Mad Dog" but without "iJwanasibeki" also exists.)
