  1. Thanks for playing the Tribe After Tribe track. I know I’d requested it in the past and though it wasn’t in response to my request I’m glad to hear more South African tracks anyway.

    Looking back through the magic of Gmail archival I find that I requested it in an email back in 2005. Here’s what I said.

    The other song is Bob Dylan’s As I went Out One Morning. It was
    covered by Tribe After Tribe in 1983, on their first album, Power, and
    I much prefer their version to the original. Tribe After Tribe were
    (or are, as I think they may still be together) led by Robbi Robb
    (http://www.robbirobb.com) and moved to the US in the late 80s. They
    released an album as late as 2002 and Robbi has been involved in
    several other projects.

    Looking at Robbi’s site now I see that he has sub-sections for each of the bands he has been involved with including one for Tribe After Tribe.

    I look forward to hearing more South African artists played on Coverville.
