  1. Nice selection, but what about these:

    The Loud – Cry Baby Cry
    Steve Kekana – The Bushman (includes Bushman Dialogue)
    Three Petersen Brothers – Fanagalo

  2. Yeah, I love that Bushman song with the Bushman dialogue.

  3. Another +1 for Steve Kekana – The Bushman. It’s a really hard song to find (outside of SA) these days!

    A good start. Great list so far. Any plans to add Mbaqanga (e.g. Soul Brothers, Mahotella Queens), iscathamayo (e.g. Ladysmith Black Mambazo), more Kwaito (e.g. Mandoza), marabi (e.g. Jazz Revellers), Afro-jazz (E.g Father Huddleston’s band), pantsula (e.g Trompies), etc? Happy to help.

    The Usual were one fine SA band. It might be worth adding them to the list? “Born in a Storm” is an example. A band from the 60’s also worth including is The Square Set – Nev Whitmall, Nol Klinkhamer & co……….

  10. Where is also Wildebeest / Bush Rock; the brilliant Danzer album by Anton Goosen( I play flute on Ek mis jou); The Ancient Marriner by Robert Schröder( brilliant SA Rock Opera narration Oliver Reed); Easy over Africa ( I play flute on Azanian Love Song) Gallo Records CDRED 652; Band of Gypsies one of the longest gigging bands ever in South Africa and brilliant Hendrix exponents.

      Interesting indeed. Reached 300 yet no mention of “The Flames”, surely amongst SA’s greatest musical talents ?
      Ag shame and siestog.

  14. Hi John, I came across your site while do some research on the music of South Africa from the 60s-90’s, & was delighted to find your write up. I have linked to it from greatwhitetribe.com – Brilliant stuff! Just a thumbs up – I found some dead links on your Mabu Vinyl link – Notably to the shop, which I was particularly interested in. Swing by & visit my site sometime, I would value your thoughts. Sharing your blog on Tumblr as well ….

    Cool list. One of my favourite, more recent, songs is What He Means by Just Jinger. Very impressive and just been recorded with Jhb and KZN orchestras.
