Seriously, do not wander off on foot - central Cape Town can seem safe but get less so quickly. Have a great time - the coast towns behind Table mountain are very nice to visit.

Very little there. I picked up a Spanish version of a Joe Tex LP but that was it. There's only a couple of shops in the city to best of my knowledge but I didn't spend a lot of time looking.

Well followed my nose and where did it lead me straight to acess to cape town motherlode cant believe my luck .while out and about on thursday Met a bod who  knew misterman who had mediocre selection of 7”s in a certain shop , but  as rumour has it he has the biggest selection of  all 7”s sold in sa  in his celler at his private residence . When i mentioned trojan the bod straight away mentioned misterman as the go to person  so i showed a photo of sa chapter 5 he said yaar meeybee (sa accent) he has a hugh selection by appointment only so i was like a rat up a drain pipe and phoned him and  unfortunately i cant get to him in time and he is busy when i can do , i have been granted acess  any time he said , luckily i intend to return in  october so we agreed on that , one more record shop to try today so lets hope i find something
