There are a few I've compiled over the years for the Nascente label. The most recent which appeared a couple of months ago was a two disc set called Experience South Africa, which is a general introduction to all the various SA musical styles with a 24 page booklet. But there are several others I've done for the same label including a couple of more specialist titles such as a South African gospel comp. There's also a collection I put together for Sony in conjunction with National Georgraphic called Voices Of South Africa.
As per another thread on this website, we don't want to go giving out personal information but if you can find some way of getting your address to me via Charlie or something, I'll happily dig some out and send them to you ...

Almost without exception all the South African compilations revolve around the lowest common demoninator of the same recycled songs. How many times can you listen to Pata Pata, Stimela, Kazet, Jive Soweto?
