Paging Through Pokora's Book
......the SA connection

Book

Comment

Austrian based, Hans Pokora, published his Rare Record Cover book during 1997. Pokora is a vinyl collector of note and well known amongst record collectors in South Africa. His book also contains a selection of albums recorded by British artists who earned a living on the South African circuit, as well as other local album pressings by well known UK artists. I added a few more and deemed fit to frame some covers omitted from his book.
