    2. Received Comment from Mr Ken Talbott:
      "Really nice to see all the albums listed. One of the reasons which helped to make this series successful was that amongst the singers used to record the covers was Stevie and Mutt (Robert John Lange). Stevie has gone on to be a voice coach to Robbie Williams and Blue, and Mutt has written top hits like the Brian Adams "All I do I do for you". When recording these albums it became apparent that Mutt had a super critical ear. He would often comment on details which no one else could even hear. Although hard work, those hours spent at the EMI studios in Pritchard Street Johannesburg have turned out to be worth it"

  9. For Springbok Hits 28 you say that Jonathan Butler's 'I'll Be Home' is on this. I can confirm that this is the same song as the Flamingos one.

  10. Hey macloud, You inspired me to go out and build a complete collection of all these fantastic LPs! Many of these LPs are more than 40 years old now. The crackle and hiss when playing these tracks on a turntable gives my listening experience a "retro" feel! What a beautiful trip down memory lane. Thanks for organizing all these LPs!
