SA Nostalgia – Revisited on Rhythm Online

Remember those great pop, rock and country songs from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s that used to be played on Springbok Radio? A large number of them can be found on The Best of South African Pop CD series at Sugar Music.

And of course there were some great songs that weren’t played on the radio at all.

More recently a few of those nostalgic classics have been covered by today’s artists.  Steve Hofmeyr and Wonderboom, for example, have both released CDs consisting almost exclusively of cover versions of South African hits.

I have compiled a virtual collection of  some of the cover versions of SA Nostalgia hits that are available on the Rhythm Online store.

I know I have missed quite a few, but its mostly due to licencing restrictions, such as Ballyhoo’s ‘Man On The Moon’ by Arno Carstens, which has not been authorized by Sony Music for selling on Rhythm Online.

Coming soon … a virtual collection of original classic SA Nostalgia from the 70’s and 80’s available on Rhythm Online. Anton Goosen, David Kramer, Julian Laxton, Falling Mirror,  McCully Workshop, Jack Hammer, Radio Rats, Roger Lucey, Brian Finch, Crocodile Harris, Robin Auld, The Kalahari Surfers and more.


Playlist Creator & Web Marketer. The son of a church organist father and pianist mother, South African born Brian Currin grew up surrounded by music. In his pre-teen years he realised that he had no real talent for playing music and he couldn't sing, so he immersed himself in the world of music by listening, exploring and researching. Which he still does today. He served in the military for five years, then spent many years in corporate sales and marketing until his involvement in the re-discovery of Rodriguez, opened up a whole new world for him. He was the Content Editor for Rhythm Online, South Africa's first online music store, from 2006 to 2012. He ran Mabu Vinyl, the iconic music store seen in the Oscar-winning "Searching For Sugar Man" film from 2013 to 2019. His voice could be heard on the streaming radio station All Jazz Radio where he hosted the Vagabond Show from 2012 to 2019. He is very involved in promoting South African music, and is the co-owner of a number of music-related websites including which he founded in 1999.
