GUEST,Bob Coltman Seeking Josef Marais (22) RE: Seeking Josef Marais 20 Dec 11

Josef Marais' earliest presence on record was solo, before Miranda joined him and they made such a memorable duo. In the following two Decca LPs he laid the foundations for the translated Veld-song repertoire, made over for the concert stage, that was to anchor their eventual worldwide songbag.

Personally, I could listen to his version of the old trekker song "Sarie Marais" till the cows come home.
