Dan Hill. Sounds Electronic 66/33. Rare 1966 South African Cheesecake cover
Original released on LP CBS ALD 6977
(South Africa, 1966)
Once more, and this time because of the sad departure of the South African maestro last Sunday, I’m going to re-upload all the Sounds Electronic albums.
So, let’s begin, not quite from the start (’cause I don’t have the first one from the series) but with the 2nd volume, from 1966. Still in Mono, but the first one to have a gorgeous pin-up on the cover, which I guess helped to create and develop the great success of the collection. I was convinced that I wouldn’t put my hands on this album again (my father had it in Mozambique and was the first one he got). Thanks to Gideon, a Rato’s friend in South Africa, who discovered and sent it by what he called a snail mail (but it arrived!) I was lucky enough to have it again. After a little polish, in both the cover and the sound, here you have this rare gem from the mid-sixties to begin your Sounds Electronic collection.
