A selection of Piet Botha and Jack Hammer mp3s, compiled by Brian Currin and authorized by Piet Botha.
Goeienag Generaal (live 1999) – Piet Botha & Jack Hammer
The real story behind the Border War; not for sensitive listeners. Originally released on ‘Suitcase Vol Winter‘ in 1997, this version was recorded at the SABC for a 5FM live broadcast in 1999 and released on the ‘Bootleg‘ album in 2001.
RARE: THE EARLY YEARS
Wheel Of Fortune – Raven
Song from the very rare first seven single featuring Piet Botha which was released in 1979. Raven included keyboardist Gabi le Roux who went on to become a master kwaito producer for Mandoza and others.
Fort Lauderdale (original 1990 version) – Jack Hammer
This is the song that should have been used for the soundtrack of the movie ‘Stander’ but wasn’t! First recorded in 1990 and released on ‘The Judas Chapter‘, this song was later re-recorded in 1999 and released on Jack Hammer’s ‘Anthology‘ album.
RARE: DEMOS 2001-2002

Due to the very nature of these recordings, quality is not always great and some songs have even been taken from original vinyl sources.
