Top 12 2012: Top 12 plaaslike CD-uitreikings vir 2012 – Albert du Plessis | LitNet

Here is a list of 12 South African albums released this year that have captured my imagination for various reasons.

They made me think, or they made me cry, or they made me remember, or they made want to dance, or they were just plain fun.

Cheers
