I made this mix tape way back in December 1975 when I was DJ'ing at a dancing school! All these songs were recorded from seven singles released in the previous 5 years, hence the very clever title. I was 16 at the time and this tape was made to impress a girl, Astrid, about my cool pop tastes. This type of music was taboo amongst my friends, however! In their company we listened to Hendrix, Deep Purple, Yes, Bowie, Led Zep, Uriah Heep and such-like. This TDK tape still plays (and sounds fine) after 30 years! And I have almost all these songs on CD now.William E, The Dealians, Neil Herbert and Alan Garrity were big names in the South African bubblegum music scene at the time.

great work, Brian. There are loads of tracks which bring back nice memories for me. In 1972 I was eight, but I remember most of these songs quite well.

I am living in Janesville, WI, USA and am looking for this misic now for about 10 years.

Is there a chance that I can get this on CD or download it from somewhere?
