Subject: RE: Seeking Josef Marais
Marcel, oddly enough one of the first collections of songs I ever bought was a paperback book of Marais and Miranda's music, back in the sixties. Even with apartheid still going strong then, I was never aware of anything more than the gentle fun of something like Ou Tante Koba, and Sugar Bush and Hey Round the Corner were quite major hits here in the fifties. Good to see them remembered.
