UC153 – South African Beats
zzz danny_rivers

To start the new year, let’s take a SAA-ticket (first class, of course) and fly to Johannesburg and Durban in the 60s. You might have heard a good deal of the 28 tacks collected here, specially on the BeatinRock (or is that RockinBeat?)-series. I selected the ones that are missing on the few “official” SA-samplers (skipping the instrumentals) and I think we’ll get a most delightful menu with a few pretty rare dishes, such as the marvelous platter by the Fives (no info) and the awesome version of I’m Crying by the Secrets which can absolutely cope even with the Animals’ treatment I reckon. No liner-notes this time, I was too lazy. Hope you’ll dig this collection nevertheless. If not, drop me a line. Enjoy!

That's the insidious thing about Mediafire. Some people can get the link while most are denied. The blog host can always get the link. Most of us cannot. Rado

thank you for all of the post thru the years. I just recently discovered your site, and was able to download most of the posts before mediafire started going crazy. You have posted some amazing music,thank you for making it possible to hear this music!

Re: thanks!

Hi Lowgear,
I'm happy you dig my selections and you were able to download the music. I understand Mediafire is not viable anymore so from now on I'll use Zippyshare. Thanks for your line which keep this little site goin' on.

saluti dall'Italia!

Thanks for all the great comps.
Any chance you could re-up some of the girl singer/group and Beathlehem Highs part 2 UC127 comps on Zippyshare that mediafire will no longer let D/L?

thx for your words of appreciation my friend, new link for Beatlehem #2 is http://www13.zippyshare.com/v/85242786/file.html
I'm sorry for the girl-comps but I really don't have the time to reup the dead mediafire-links so try to get'em as long as you can. The good news tho' is I'm preparing new "Girls-with-a-Beat"-sequels with 3 or even 4 comps, they'll be ready soon, stand by....

In the meantime have fun with the Xian-groups (and redempt yourself)!

Thanks a lot for the reup of Beathlehem Highs part 2 I really appreciate it.!!!

I understand about not reuping the girl group comps but look forward to your upcoming vols of Girls-with-a-Beat comps.
Hope you can do them @320 or better yet lossless FLAC.
