My favourite African musician by far was Lucky Dube, a brilliant reggae artist from South Africa. He was heavily influenced by Peter Tosh, and tragically he ended up murdered just like his hero.

What you using to convert vinyl and cassettes? I have Magix, which is OK but very time-consuming!

I'm using Nero 7 - time consuming, but does a good job. I doubt if I'll live long enough to hear all of my vinyl on CD or iTunes!

It's an old film - from late fifties? It has no words, so no problem understanding it (not that you would have anyway")

If you google it, it's on youtube - it was made in 1956 - you can watch it all.

I just Wikipedia'd it, and it won a few Oscars, so it must be good. I'll have a look around for it! Any reason why you brought it up?

DOH! Because of the red balloons in the Rufus Wainwright video you posted! It's a bit "borrowed" from the classic film.

I love the Beatles version, but if you want to hear another version then here is Fiona Apple... who I've always found to be strangely attractive!
