Des Lindberg & Dawn Silver - Folk On Trek

Des and Dawn toured their show “Folk on Trek” South Africa and Rhodesia in a truck and caravan for three years before CBS recorded this live lunch hour concert on the stage of the Wits University Great Hall. The album was released in September 1967, and immediately became a top seller. It was promptly banned by the Publications Control Board, prompting Des and Dawn to appeal against the banning in the Supreme Court in Johannesburg. The appeal was turned down by Mr. Justice Ludorf, and all copies were ordered destroyed, including the masters.

Fortunately copies of the album survived the draconian order, closeted in the private collections of many discerning and indignant South Africans.
