'1968-1972' - This collection brings together rarities from well-known artists like
Abstract Truth, Suck, Otis Waygood, Freedom's Children, John & Philipa Cooper, McCully
Workshop and Hawk, as well as lesser known acts like Buzzard, The Fireflies,
The Idiots, Tidal Wave, and The Invaders. Although the South African rock movement
of the late sixties and early seventies was not a major commercial success, its
participants heralded an exciting new age in South African rock and started a movement
aimed at changing the musical tastes of fans in a spectacular way. Stadium concerts
became the vehicle for feeding the youth with heavier rock sounds, and behind studio
glass were producers like Clive Calder, Billy Forrest, Graham Beggs and Selwyn Miller
who acted as change agents to transform conventional pop into heavier 4 to 5 minute
songs. The movement's struggle for recognition through airplay remained unanswered
and only the true fans of rock knew about their existence. Available on vinyl for
the first time, complete with insert and liner notes.
