Dan Hill  and His Sound Electronic - Music To Watch Girls By (1967)


Legendary South African producer, jazz clarinettist and band leader of Russian heritage. 

His 1958 album "Happy Days Are Here Again" was the first South African album to go gold (more than 25,000 sales), and he gained further fame and notoriety with his Sounds Electronic series of records. In 1967 he co-founded RPM Records, opening the RPM Studios in 1979.

Hill was also known for his own albums, particularly the Sounds Electronics series of dance records launched in 1967 said Garth Chilvers.

These - and Music to Watch Girls By - caused a stir with their provocative album covers of scantily clad women - pictured on www.rock.co.za - and many had to be manually covered up with sketched on bikinis.

"Covers of best-selling records banned," shouted one newspaper headline. Another pointed out that what the model's own father had found acceptable, the censors had not, according to the website.

Hill's album Happy Days Are Here Again was the first South African album to go gold with more than 25 000 sales. His first Afrikaans album was Kom Dans Vanaand, Unika.
