Tune Us Your Top 10



My top 20 SA frican songs really depends on what archive tapes / material I'm working on at the time. My hit-parade switches targets all the time... and the fact that 3rd Ear Music publishes most of these tunes is purely co-incidental.

My wish is that more people can share these Hidden Years Archive gems that I come across daily. What we need is a Radio & Road Show. But here they are - not in any particular order.
